About Franklin

Take a break from your everyday routine and bask in nature’s beauty with a visit to Franklin, North Carolina. Located in the western part of the state, this small town is a great place to spend some vacation time. Choose from Franklin vacation rentals downtown to interact with the friendly locals and be near the town’s greatest attractions. 

Climate

When traveling to Franklin, it’s important to pack appropriately for the weather since you’ll likely be spending a lot of time outdoors and temperature varies throughout the year. The warmest month is typically July, when temperatures reach an average high of 84 degrees Fahrenheit. During the winter, January experiences the coldest temperatures and the most precipitation. January sees high temperatures that average in the mid-40s and average low temperatures in the lower-20s. 

Things to do

Franklin vacation rentals are great for sleeping and relaxing at the end of a full day, but during your stay there is lots to see and do. A good place to start is the North Carolina Civil War Trails and the Cherokee Heritage Trail. The trails feature numerous historic sites and centers, so visitors can learn a bit about the area while exploring.

Everyone in your group will love mining for gems in any of the many public gem mines in Franklin. Visit during the fall and spring for the best time to min for gems at Mason’s Ruby & Sapphire Mine. Dig your own mine in search of precious treasures or choose to hunt through enriched buckets for a quicker experience. Rose Creek Mine offers a similar experience, and you’ll find Ruby, Sapphire, Garnet, Amethyst, Topaz, and more here.

Treat kids to hours of fun at The Factory. It’s the premier destination for family fun in Western North Carolina and features more than 100 arcade games, bowling lanes, laser tag, indoor mini golf, the region’s largest go cart track, and more. There are also countless kid-friendly places here to grab food before heading home to relax. 

Museums

For families that want to spend some time indoors but away from their Franklin cabin rentals, the town also offers a number of museums that are worth visiting. Visit the Franklin Gem & Mineral Museum where approximately 6,000 items are on display. It’s located in the Historic 1850 Macon County Jail and features everything from Indian artifacts to fluorescent minerals and gems. Make a quick stop at the Scottish Tartans Museum to learn about the history and development of Scottish Highland Dress before heading to the Macon County Historical Society and Museum. This museum gives visitors a look into the area’s history via unique displays, interesting collections and educational exhibits. 

Events

While on vacation in Franklin, you’ll want to check for events that take place nearby. Visit at the beginning of April and celebrate the Appalachian Trail during Franklin’s April Fool’s Trail Days and Hiker Bash. During this event, hikers enjoy a respite from the cold and wet weather on the trail while taking part in the festive atmosphere. There is great entertainment, local food vendors, and a variety of booths that feature the latest in outdoor gear.

The summer months boast a number of unique events that kick off with the annual Taste of Scotland in June. This street festival features games, dancing, food, and other authentic Scottish entertainment. In July, enjoy a celebration of Appalachian culture and heritage during the Annual Franklin Folk Festival.

The events keep coming in the fall and winter months, making any time a great time to stay in Franklin condo rentals. In October, the town hosts an annual pumpkin festival with hayrides, pie eating contests, parades, and more. The last weekend of November and first weekend of December bring the Winter Wonderland holiday festival where families can enjoy the enchanting winter atmosphere with music, holiday displays, and more.

Franklin is an inviting haven for vacationers looking for a taste of the outdoors and a touch of history. For ultimate comfort after days spent exploring, stay in Franklin condo rentals, and make the area your home away from home for a week.
