Architecture and history buffs will enjoy strolling past carefully maintained Victorian homes and buildings. With an array of antique shops, gift shops, bookstores, art galleries, and boutiques to peruse, shoppers will certainly not get bored. Of course, you’re sure to get hungry while visiting historic Franklin. Thank goodness there are some great spots to grab a bite to eat.
On the first Friday of each month, Franklin hosts an art crawl. Over thirty galleries and studios open their doors to art lovers. Peruse paintings, sculptures, jewelry and blown glass (among other treasures). The art crawl itself is free, but for $5 visitors can ride all evening on a trolley from studio to studio.
