America Meets Franklin
The charm of Downtown Franklin is what draws people here. The friendliness is what keeps people coming back. After living in Franklin for 23 years we still find that one of our favorite things to do is to come downtown, grab a latte or an ice cream and stroll the Main Street listening to the sounds and enjoying the people.
If you're hungry you have Red Pony, Grays, Pucketts, Merridees (my favorite), Mellow Mushroom, 55 South, Cork and Cow, Zolos, and more. Just want a coffee there is Frothy Monkey, Starbucks and Merridees. Cool off with an Ice Cream then you have CiCi's Frozen Yogurt, Kilwins Franklin and of course Baskin Robins. Sorry but for now if you want Gelato you have to head to Cool Springs and get Nuccis (good stuff).
But the walk is what Franklin is all about. Pop in on the shops, listen to the street musicians, or just have a bench seat and become a people watcher. New shops, old shops, art shops and clothiers, all kinds of shops, all kinds of fun.
So be sure when you are in Nashville to swing 20 minutes south and visit Downtown Franklin. A great place to visit and a better place to live.
You Won't Find More Charming Stores
The banner up top and the store shelves pictured above are from Whites Mercantile on Main Street in Franklin. If you are a Franklin resident or just here for a visit you won't want to miss this little store. It is the best way to travel back in time without a DeLorean. Clever decor and neat novelty Items clutter the shelves and the displays will have you longing for the old days. You might even pick up a few things that you never knew you had to have.
For the Decorator in You
If you need to see the latest in the Shabby Chic world head right across the street to Iron Gate. If you just want a gift souvenir (great scented candles) or that one of a kind that will make your house guests say Wow with a capital W you need to have a look in Iron Gate. If you do happen to decide you want to move to Franklin I guarantee you'll be back to pick out a couple of items to put that finishing touch on your favorite rooms. Or put it in the hands of their designers. So many do and are thrilled.
