Franklin Tennessee, with all it has to offer, is the perfect place for any vacation. With more than 70 shops and restaurants around the corner, alongside movie and live theaters you will find plenty of great entertainment. There are also a few parks nearby if you are craving an outdoor experience. Franklin is perhaps best known for its Civil War History as the sight of the famous Battle of Franklin. There are several historic home museums and tours available for the history buff. If you are looking for more social experiences you can enjoy one of Franklin’s many Festivals including the Main Street Festival, The Pilgrimage Music Festival, Bluegrass on the Harpeth, Franklin Jazz Festival, and the Dickens Christmas just to name a few.
