The Good and the Not-So-Good - 3/12/2017
I love that this is a greatly diverse community with a large African American and Hispanic community around West Main St./Nachez (I'm addicted to Pueblo Real Mexican restaurant in that area...yum!!!). You won't find a lot of Franklin natives, though. I have lived here over a year and most people I have met are from other states. I have met many people from NY and California. I love the downtown area, with all of the historic homes. The Harlinsdale dog park is nice but you have to go at off times (not weekends) or you will be stuck in an overcrowded pen with too many dogs and gossipy effeminate men in skinny jeans with their "delicate dogs" , drinking their Starbucks and yelling at any dog that touches their dog. The weather in Franklin is really good most of the time and they have a lot of events downtown but I have to admit, after going to 3 or 4 of these events, they are the same vendors selling the same crafts and stuff at every event. The only difference is the theme.

DO NOT MOVE HERE UNLESS YOUR A DEVOUT CHRISTIAN WH - 7/27/2014
I moved here from NYC two yrs ago and moving back in 2 months. This is worst place Ive lived in my life! nothing but Jesus freaks and conservative bores who think "FUN" is going hunting or going to church every five minutes. Boring is putting is lightly. Nothing to do here but EAT or go to the mall. Thats why everyone here is out of shape. And if your a liberal forget it. They don't know what that means here...If your a right wing Christian who loves to talk about church all day, you will fit in Read More

Fed Up with Outsiders - 5/5/2014
Coming from an original Franklin resident, I can tell you that this place used to be incredible. USED to be. When GM decided on Spring Hill for the Saturn plant in the 80s, it was the beginning of the end. The influx of outsiders has not stopped. All the outsiders have moved in and created a sh*thole in place of my hometown. It may be so much better than the crap city/state you came from, but you're slowly turning Franklin into exactly what you left. There's no reason it should take 45 minutes to an hour to get 7.5 miles down the road. Well these days it sure as hell does because so many of you keep coming in droves. 70,000 people is beyond enough! I get looked at like an alien when I tell people I'm from here. You've all driven the originals out and made it your own version of whatever you think it should be. PLEASE STOP COMING HERE. Read More

Franklin,TN- highly overated - 7/6/2013
Well, this town gets high reviews everywhere you look, it seems. Yet from the perspective of a person who has lived in a variety of states, due to moving because of my job, I find this place highly over-rated. Many online sites state how it is such a wonderful place to live, adding onto that how affordable it is, yet after living here for nearly four years, I find it to be kind of a sham. The quaint downtown is truly a front- which many towns are- but this one seems to be more than most.
The proximity to Nashville makes it desirable to many with hopes of making it big. As such, they are prepared to pay the high cost of living here: very high rental prices (for what you get), extreme traffic build-ups and delays that in reality rival LA, and it is nowhere near the size, and a city board that gives the impression they can do no wrong.
Many folks love a small town, and this is what was one at one time. But now, with the growth of Nashville, it is a packed bedroom Read More

Ok But not the best city to live - 4/17/2011
Don't get me wrong Franklin,Tn is very beautiful and green but this isn't the problem. The problem is the PEOPLE. This is a strong statement please Im not a racist by all means, This town is for middle to upper class white FAMILYS. That is it. Most of the blacks either live on or around Natchez and some live in mixed neighborhoods among the whites. The white people are either very nice or very racist towards brown people. There is no in between. Lost of sterotyping goes on here, they kind of don't see us being able to afford to live in forest crossing or McKays mill but I do so. The people overall are just not really friendly if your an outsider. The job market is way of base here. The cost of living here doesn't match what things cost like housing, electric, water,etc..... Its extremely hard to find a job in you are a minority , Black, hispanic, Asian ect... There is nothing to do but go to the malls and out to eat. Do Not move here if you have teenagers they will get into trouble Read More
