Weekend Guide to Nashville + Franklin, Tennessee
First I will give you a little run-down on how our weekend went and elaborate more on the places we explored/things we did! Feel free to skip if you want. Below I will leave sections listing out picture spots and restaurant recommendations.
A few weekends ago my boyfriend, Justin, and I traveled up to Tennessee to visit his sister and brother-in-law who both reside in Franklin. The first day we got there I knew I had to immediately hit 12 South to take blog pictures. I had my eye on the well-known Amelia’s Flower Truck. I knew I must snap a few cute pictures and of course, buy a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers. After taking pictures in front of the flower truck, we ventured around the area to find a few wall murals. We stopped at the famous “I Believe in Nashville” wall and took a few more pictures around the area. We shopped around and browsed in Imogene + Willie (I also took pictures outside of the store because of it's black and white colored brick, and it is right next to the flower truck). After an hour of taking pictures, we went onto Franklin.
Franklin is a city south of Nashville. It is a town full of history, uniqueness, and charm. This town is your dream place to raise a family. Downtown Franklin has a lot of character to it. From the shops to the restaurants, live music playing around town, this place is one-of-a-kind. During our first night in Franklin, we went to the Franklin Factory, a restored factory that has restaurants, merchants, shops, and holds events. We ate at Mojo’s Tacos (highly suggest the Hot Chicken and Baja Fish Taco). After we stuffed ourselves with delicious Mexican food we couldn’t leave without passing up Jeni’s Ice Cream. We ended our night at the Franklin Theatre which shows movies, live music, and plays.
During our second day in Franklin, we strated off our day by going to the "tiny little donuts" food truck. After we stuffed oursleves full with delicious little sweetes, we went downtown to explore and do a little shopping (my favorite activity of course). My all-time favorite store we went into was Imago Dei. It had the cutest clothing and souvenirs to bring back to your friends. Beyond the clothing, the store itself was all you neutral-lovers dream. Another great store was Tin Cottage, a home and gift store. This store has all the cutest trinkets you could ever imagine. Shopping, eating, and exploring was the majority of our trip to Franklin and Nashville, Tennessee. Hope you enjoy and this helps if you ever plan to do a trip to either of these places.
