Franklin, TN Attractions for New Families

Our Favorite 5 Must-Dos for New Residents

As local home inspectors, and Tennessee natives who have lived, grown up and now work in and around Franklin, we appreciate Franklin, a longtime suburb of Nashville, especially for its TN-family-centric neighborhoods and its historic Victorian mansions. Second to its endearing homes is its endless entertainment for all ages in historical tours, parks, theatres, modern gaming, trampoline basketball, escape games and laser tag, indoor golf, billiards, and a wide range of dining options.

We’ve watched as the number of area residents has grown fivefold in the past several decades. Along with that growth came tons of fun with family-centric entertainment businesses!
