  • We went on the ghost tour last weekend and had a fantastic time! Alicia did an amazing job as our guide; entertaining, informative, well-spoken and has a great sense of humor. The tour was the best of this kind I’ve done anywhere in the country. Highly recommend!
  • Really enjoyed the walking ghost tour. Very fun! I have a history degree and think I knew a lot about franklin but the tour guide taught me a lot. Definitely recommend this to anyone.
  • Franklin On Foot is an informitave deep dive through the history of the Downtown Franklin area. Our tour guide, Alecia, took us on a tour of various places throughout the city, one of which was Cherry Manor, one of the most haunted buildings in the area. If you do the tour in October - March, bring a jacket, hat, and gloves, as it gets chilly.
  • So much fun! Very well done. Tour guide Alicia was FANTASTIC! Highly recommend.
  • Just left the Franklin Tour. Most definitely would recommend for anyone who wants to sample and learn about Franklin! Cute town!

Where to stay in Franklin

With its brick buildings and small-town charm, the downtown area remains Franklin's biggest draw, but accommodation options here are limited to just a couple inns and bed and breakfasts. You will, however, find many national-chain hotels in the commercial district around where Murfreesboro Road meets Interstate 65. As an alternative, consider staying on a working farm just outside the town center for a more rustic experience.
