FRANKLIN, Tenn. – A “Visit Franklin” app is now available for free in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. Designed with ease of use in mind, the Visit Franklin app will be the only tour guide you’ll need to navigate Franklin and Williamson County with the ease of a local.

“We aim for this app to be a useful resource for both visitors and local residents alike,” said Williamson County Convention and Visitors Bureau President & CEO Ellie Westman Chin. “For our visitors, it provides great ways for them to plan their trip before arriving and then get around more easily once they are here. While with its constant updates of events and happenings around the county, we hope it will quickly become a go-to point of information for residents as well.”

Users of the app will find instant access to all the latest information on special events, festivals and daily live music listings across the county, as well as hundreds of searchable listings of where to eat, play and stay while visiting.

A unique feature of the new Visit Franklin app is its ability to search based on the user’s preferences and location. This allows visitors and locals alike to find the perfect shop or event that is just down the block or narrowed down to what restaurant to try for dinner by what they are in the mood for. Finding exactly where in the county to do exactly what you want to do has never been easier.

“This app is a great way to connect the community and local events,” said Josh Collins, Digital Communications Manager for the WCCVB. “We’ve focused on making this app easy to use with hopes of eliminating that ‘I wish I had known about that’ feeling you have when you miss out on a great event and making the visitor’s experience in Franklin as positive as possible.”

As users discover places and events they want to explore, they can develop an agenda for the places and events they want to experience during their visit inside the app. Additional highlights of the Visit Franklin app include the ability to receive messages and special app-exclusive offers and giveaways – especially during festivals and events – along with catching the latest blog listings, connecting directly to Visit Franklin on social media and more.
