Is Franklin The Best Vacation For Me in October?

Vacations don’t just happen in the summer. In fact, some of the best travel deals happen in the fall! On top of cooler weather paving the way for those perfect fall outfits to come out of the closet, October also makes a great month to travel and see the gorgeous scenery around Franklin, Tennessee. (Travel & Leisure even says as much by mentioning our neighbor to the north).

One of the things we hear from visitors all the time about their trips to Franklin in the fall is just how picturesque the rolling hills are as they drive the Masters and Makers trail or explore the Natchez Trace and Leiper’s Fork. It’s certainly a sight to see if you’ve never experienced it for yourself.

October is also loaded with tons of great events the whole family will love too! Take a look at a few of the highlights below but be sure to explore the whole calendar to start planning your trip!
