Franklin, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville, is a quaint Main Street town with an abundance of scenic local parks, pedestrian-friendly shopping and canoeing on the Harpeth River. Just a short drive from downtown Franklin is the lovely Bowie Nature Park with 700 acres of lush forest, lakes and 17 miles of trails for individuals, couples and families! Enjoy bicycling, horseback riding, fishing, running, hiking, playing or picnicing.

Local sports tournaments for kids are very popular in Franklin - everything from ice hockey, basketball, volleyball, softball, baseball, soccer, football, gymastics and LaCrosse. 

Another favorite is the annual Tennessee Senior Olympics held every July with some 1,600+ senior athletes competing in over a dozen sports! Participants welcome or come cheer them on!

Some great outdoor farm-related activities include: Hatcher Family Dairy and Noble Springs Dairy tours, seasonal 'U-Pick' farms such as Morning Glory Orchard for apples, Golden Bell for blueberries, and Gentry Farms for pumpkins.
