During fall, the air is a little crisper, the leaves a little more colorful and everything is just a little more beautiful. Make the most of the season by spending it in Downtown Franklin.
The summer heat is gone and it’s time to enjoy the beautiful weather that fall brings. Scenic hiking trails are never far away from Downtown Franklin, but before you hit the trails stop by Bink’s Outfitters. Here you’ll find all of your outdoor clothing and footwear essentials.
If staying indoors is what you have in mind, stop by the Franklin Theatre. This restored historic movie house has a full bar, concessions and entertainment galore.
