A great place to Retire,Play and Grow!
Franklin is large enough to offer almost everything you need, yet small enough to offer the highest quality of life. While the area is famous for its rural beauty, it is by no means isolated. Franklin is situated along major highways US 23/441 and US 64, with easy access to major interstates I-40, I-26 and I-85. Atlanta, GA is just 127 miles to the south, while Knoxville, Tennessee is only 110 miles to the north and Asheville, NC is 65 miles to the east.
Nearly half of Macon County, of which Franklin is the county seat, lies within the Nantahala National Forest. Comprised of over a half-million acres of unspoiled beauty, this magnificent forest is just waiting to be explored. The Nantahala is the largest of the four national forests in North Carolina.
Spectacular waterfalls, fantastic hiking trails, pristine fishing streams and abundant wildlife are among the area's many natural treasures.
Gem Capital of the World
The natural heritage of Franklin is not limited to mountain scenery and wildlife. The area is rich in gems and minerals and is a favorite spot for rockhounds of all ages. The interest in gems & minerals has also spawned one of the country's best know gem shows, the Macon County Gemboree. The event, held in July, draws thousands annually to Franklin. In fact, the original Gemboree has grown so popular that two other gem shows have been added to accommodate the interest; the Mother's Day Gemboree held in May and the Leaflooker's Gemboree in October.
After you've taken in the scenic and natural beauty of the area, you've yet to discover Franklin's main attraction... our people. Don't be surprised to be greeted by smiles and a friendly "Hello" from perfect strangers as you make your way around the town.
Each year Franklin offers numerous festivals and special events including, Pickin' on the Square, which features live music each Saturday night June through October in downtown. Discover our Scottish heritage during "A Taste of Scotland" in June. Plus enjoy the largest 4th of July celebration in western North Carolina right here in Franklin.
Nature's wonders, history and heritage, make Franklin, the ideal place for a relaxing, refreshing getaway or a truly awesome place to call home...
