Two weeks ago, my husband and I handled a furniture delivery to two clients near Nashville, TN. We spent the night in nearby Brentwood (Nashville itself was inundated with country music fans there for a huge set of outdoor concerts in the downtown area). While visiting (and avoiding those same crowds), we traveled to the town of Franklin, TN - south of the city.
We were charmed by the city! Its historic area and main street were vibrant with pedestrian traffic and quite a few shoppers for a downtown area. We were impressed and plan to go back when we have a little more energy and time.Fourteen miles and 100 years from Nashville, Downtown Franklin, Tennessee is an oasis of Southern hospitality housed in a 16-block National Register district of antique shops, gift and book stores, art galleries, boutiques, lovingly restored homes and more. It boasts an award-winning Main Street, brick sidewalks, a stunning collection of Victorian buildings and a host of “Best of“ accolades–including Garden & Gun magazine’s 2014 “Best Southern Town.” link to website
