To see if we can interest you in them, we’ve put together a guide on moving to Tennessee: small towns to consider!

Franklin is a very nice middle choice between very small towns and the larger cities of Tennessee. It is located not far from Nashville, just some twenty or so miles, so you will also still have access to the conveniences of a large urban center if you do opt for living in Franklin. The city fits into the cheaper living costs of Tennessee as compared to most of the U.S., too, and is even a little cheaper than other cities.
