A Day in Franklin...

There is so much to do and see in the Nashville area. Just to the south lies one of Middle Tennessee’s most charming gems. Franklin Tennessee is where small-town charm and big-city sophistication meet. Since we now have new poster designs featuring Franklin, the designers decided to show you around town.

Downtown Franklin . . .
Visit downtown Franklin for great shopping and dining in a relaxing small-town atmosphere. During your visit you can also see many Civil War historical markers and related landmarks. Franklin has a wide variety of shops to choose from, including trendy boutiques and locally owned shops with hand-made products.

Also . . .
While your downtown be sure to check out Landmark Booksellers – it's located on Main Street and the building actually dates back to the 1820's. It's a fantastic place to browse vintage magazines and books.

The Factory . . .
The Factory at Franklin has an interesting atmosphere for shopping and dining. Built in 1929 this renovated factory building is a great place to shop, dine, or just relax with the family. With everything from a wedding shop to kids pottery classes, there is something for everyone!

Before leaving The Factory be sure to go eat at the Boxwood Bistro. Housed in the old payroll office of The Factory, this American bistro puts a local spin on its delicious dishes. 

As you can tell it's really good! 

The Franklin Theatre . . . 
The Historic Franklin Theater is the heart of Main Street, and was established in 1937 – admission was 25 cents! Located in downtown Franklin, the newly renovated theatre now has movies, plays and live music, making it a great place to end your day or cool off. (It was the communities first air-conditioned building in 1938.)

  1. These are really popular places in the city for private events for corporations like us. It can be hard to find the right venue for big events. The right size of event venues Chicago, that is flexible fits well. Thanks to you.
