The "bleep free" comedy night was fabulous! I probably couldn't take an evening of listening to the curses of regular comedy so this bleep free event was made to measure. We laughed and had a pretty good meal as well.

Visited on a Thursday evening. Maybe half the stores were open. Of course, we had to stop for a chocolate.

Great downtown area. Restaurants, bars and some great shops. I wish I'd had more time here not only to shop but also to visit some of the historical sites. Park and wander the Main Street.

Take time to stroll back a few years and enjoy Franklin. Wonderful place to window shop and browse. You find excellent eateries and quaint shops. The surround area is full of antique shops and more restaurants.

Lots of shops and restaurants- and lots of locals and visitors make it a lively place. Worth walking around - before or after eating lunch. Parking on street but there is a big garage on 5th street.

No. Not much Sunday shopping. It is mostly about the restaurants on Sundays.
