Third Coast Clay - Paint your Cares Away
OK, I must have been an artist in a previous life... Granted, in THIS life, I have no talent for it, but I sure do have the affinity! This is a different kind of painting - you select the clay piece you want to paint (plates, cups, teapots, banks, statues, pet bowls,...

Puckett's Boat House: Puckett's Boat House
Came here for lunch on a Saturday - it was busy, but not crowded. I loved the ambiance - it felt like the restaurants close to the fishing camps in Louisiana. This restaurant is devoted to seafood - fried, grilled, blackened - you name it! Prices are reasonable, and the...
Cork and Cow: Cork and Cow
Definitely more "high end" than my husband and I usually patronize - we came here for our family Christmas dinner. The restaurant is lovely - small, very dark, and woody, and cozy feeling. This would be ideal for a "date night". We had a lovely time - the waitress was great,...
The Frothy Monkey Coffeehouse: The Frothy Monkey Coffeehouse
The newest coffee house in Franklin will likely give Starbuck's a run for it's money! We came here before a concert at the Franklin Theatre and the place was packed. We placed our order at the counter and garnered a sweet table on the patio. The food arrived quickly and was...
Uncle Bud's Catfish Shack: Uncle Bud's Catfish Shack
Came here with my husband for lunch. He had the fried catfish po-boy and I had the chicken tender po-boy. French fries tasted fresh, not frozen, and are the thick cut type. He really enjoyed his po-boy, but I did not care for the sauce they used on the sandwiches. Unlimited...

We started with 1/2 dozen chargrilled oysters - yummy!! I had the Atchafalaya Pirogue - Fried eggplant stuffed...
Papa Boudreaux's: Cajun Flavor in Franklin: Papa Boudreaux's
Located in a historic building on Franklin's Main Street, this is a new restaurant to the area (opened in April 2011). Very small inside (9 long picnic-style tables) and seating is "family style". Menu is posted on the chalkboard. The prices are a little intimidating, but...

Franklin Mercantile Deli: Franklin Mercantile Deli
"The Merc" is a local gem; casual, cozy and artsy, like other great Nashville haunts. Mismatched tables and chairs, local artist handiwork on the walls - even the live flowers in mason jars on the table - this is the epitome of funky, local chic.Food is very tasty and...
Civil War Ghost Tours: Ghost of Gore tour at the Carnton Plantation.
This is an increadible thing the city does every year. Since Franklin was host for the civil war city of Battle at Pinkerton, there are ghosts to be seen, also in the old Plantation Mansions. Good way to get your family looking over their shoulder! Ghosts and Gore tour of...

A charming new addition to Franklin by the Franklin Transit Authority are numerous trolleys to carry people about the town. You can either hop on and off at your convenience, or renting an entire trolley if your group is large enough. This is the perfect way to get that...

The Factory at Franklin
The Factory at Franklin is actually a complex with several artsy shops within. This is a true jewel, and a lovely shopping (as well as eating!) experience. Two of my great-great grandfathers and my grandpa worked in this factory when it was still a factory. The shops inside...

The annual Franklin Rodeo is a PRCA ProRodeo Event produced by the Franklin Noon Rotary Club, and is held the third weekend in May.
Nightly Pro Rodeo events include: Bareback riding; Steer Wrestling; Team Roping; Saddle Bronc Riding; Calf Roping; Barrel Racing; Bull Riding.
Kids events are: Mutton Busting & Calf Scramble.
I'm not a big fan of most of the events, especially the ones where the calves are lassoed and tied up, or jumped on and wrestled to the ground. I think the bronco busting and bull riding events are exciting. My husband LOVES this rodeo and has gone nearly every year of his life, so I guess I'll be going from now on!
Admission is $15/adult, and tickets are available online, at some local businesses, and at the door.

If you've never been to a rodeo before, then this is a true sight to see! I highly recommend the rodeo, if you can stand the smell of horses. There's plenty of souvenir cowboy hats, boots, and ropes that your kids will like, and the rodeo clowns are pretty entertaining. The...
