Throughout my life, I have explored a lot of Tennessee. I learned all about Elvis at Graceland in Memphis, I’ve explored the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the nearby tourist towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge numerous times, Nashville is somewhere that I go to at least a couple times every year, and I live in northwest Georgia, which is only about 45 minutes away from Chattanooga, Tennessee. I thought that I had seen the best of what Tennessee has to offer, but it turns out that there are some lesser-known cities that are just as worthy of visiting as the popular destinations. I learned this recently on a four-day, three-night trip to the spectacular city of Franklin, Tennessee.
Franklin is a short 25-minute drive from Nashville, making it the perfect destination for anything from a day trip to a weekend getaway or even a longer stay. There is a lot to see in Franklin and I recently checked out its wheelchair accessible offerings. From rolling in the great outdoors on accessible trails to enjoying a variety of adult beverages at the area’s best distilleries, breweries, and wineries, there was certainly no shortage of wheelchair accessible Franklin Tennessee attractions.
In this guide, I’ll share with you some of the best things to do in Franklin as a wheelchair user and where to stay. After reading this article, you should be fully prepared to have a great time on your own trip to Franklin, Tennessee.
