    Nice walkable city. Basically about one long block. You can walk to Lotz house and the one across from it. The museum has a free self tour with some interesting artifacts.  more »

    Alicia did a great job. Interesting stories. I brought my 10 and 12 year olds and they were very enthused throughout the tour. Alicia was mindful of her audience and approached me beforehand regarding...  more »

    Alicia was wonderful! She was friendly and had a great personality. She was very knowledgeable on all the stories. Just bring a jacket/earmuffs.

    Went on a group tour with a small work team yesterday & had a great time! Our guide, Alicia, was witty, enthusiastic, and seemed to really be interested in what she was talking about. For the crime tour (Murder and Mayhem), you have to schedule a tour, but as long as it's a few days before you want to go, there is no problem. For $18 per person, I think it's a great value for a couple hours of good entertainment. One thing to be aware of - all tours are rain or shine! Make sure you're prepared for the heat or cold, as there are no indoor stops at all, though there are some benches throughout. (An August afternoon may not have been my best idea for our outdoor walking tour...) Bring your own water/sunglasses/sunscreen and enjoy stepping back in time! :)

    What a great evening! We did the Franklin ghost tour, our tour guide Alicia was absolutely amazing. She told the stories with great knowledge and excitement. It was a beautiful October evening and well worth every penny

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.
