Labor Day weekend signals that the end of Summer is drawing near. Time seems to be moving faster and faster and the calendar is a little less forgiving each year. School buses are back on the road in Macon County and the classrooms are alive with the spirit of teaching and learning. The most colorful time of the year, leaf season, is literally weeks away.
If you haven’t already, we hope you’ll make your plans to spend this last three day weekend of the summer here in Franklin, exploring the sights of the many downtown stores that are clearing way for their fall inventory. Take a walk down the historic streets and visit the museums and art galleries that bring to life the history and the majestic beauty of our quiet, quaint town. Check out your favorite hiking trail, or discover a new one, on one of the many close to town trails, the most famous one being the Appalachian Trail, that is little less than 15 miles from downtown Franklin. Of course, what weekend would be complete without a drive up Highlands Road to see the green in glory and hear the rush of the Cullasaja River flowing over the sides of the most beautiful waterfalls in western North Carolina!
Take a step back and enjoy all there is to see and do here in Franklin, NC. We hope you have a safe, fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend and we look forward to seeing you again as the leaves change their hue and the magical colors of fall soon begin to shine!
