Lots of fun shops and places to eat in beautiful downtown Franklin TN. UNlike some towns the variety was great without lots of repeats. We especially liked Tazikis for our lunch.

The downtown area is small with shops and places to eat. Since it is part of the history of the area, it is definitely worth your time to stroll the streets and enjoy.

We took this tour on a cold Saturday morning. Our guide Margie, was knowledgeable and informative while being personable. The tour was 2 hours in length and a nice way to get to know the town

Enjoyed walking around and shopping in the town, which is close to Nashville, but with a true small town feel.

We visited and spent the day in Franklin. Great little town with shops and restaurants. Was recommended to us and definitely worth the visit. Had lunch at Meriden breadbasket super popular spot with good homemade food and then we went to visit a plantation house.

This is a great change of pace from Nashville, but close enough to the city to get you some fun. Excellence shops all along the main steeet. Friendly faces. Diverse options. Well worth the 20 minute side south from Nashville!

We were only there on a Monday but all that I noticed were open. I did notice that one or two restaurants were closed on Mondays when I checked their websites before we went. Hope this helps
