Franklin, Tennessee is an idyllic little town that embodies the American south by way of warm hospitality, antique shops, art galleries and centuries-old architecture. That said, it’s also a town that isn’t afraid of progress. The humble 16-block district now boasts live music venues, chic bars with bold cocktails, and tons of activities for young people. As a result, Franklin consistently receives accolades including “Best Small Town in Tennessee,” “America’s Most Romantic Main Street,” and “One of America’s Greatest Antique Destinations.”
Because Franklin is particularly known for its Main Street, spend some time perusing the boutique shops, funky galleries, and cafes. Franklin is also a town deeply entrenched in the civil war history, so be sure to check out the Carnton Plantation, a historic walking tour, or the Lotz House. It’s also a town known for its festivals. If your schedule lines up, consider the Main Street Brew Fest in March, the Main Street Festival in April, Franklin Jazz in September, Pumpkinfest in October, Wine Down in November, and Dickens of a Christmas in December.
