Franklin is a beautiful small town nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. In the town center you’ll find friendly people -- with a population of only 4,000, everyone seems to be a on a first-name basis -- a slower pace of life, and rich indigenous history. On the outskirts of town, Franklin lays claim to a vast expanse of wilderness that includes hiking trails, biking trails, white water rafting, hunting, fishing, and waterfalls. It’s also known as the “Gem Capital of the World,” so for any geology enthusiasts out there, this is a must-visit.
