North Carolina's Smoky Mountains Blog

Franklin, North Carolina

With the possible exception of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Highway 64 near Franklin could be the most scenic route in the South.  Once in Franklin, you'll enjoy the museums, shopping, the kids will enjoy the Fun Factory, and everyone will love prospecting for precious rubies and sapphires.  Wear work clothes - rock hounding can be dirty, but rewarding adventure.

While you're in the area, be sure to visit the Smoky Mountain Host Visitor's Center on Highway 441 South.  The center has books, maps, gifts and other items to make your Smoky Mountain  vacation relaxing and exciting as you wish.
