Franklin, Nantahala

Franklin is the perfect place to stop for a refresher after hitting the nearby trails.  Meander through the museums and shops lining it’s all-American downtown, catch a performance at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts, walk along the scenic Little Tennessee River Greenway or stop in Lazy Hiker Brewery for a sip.  The gem capital of the mountains, kids and parents can search for semi-precious stones in one of the several gem mines.
