Things to do 10/24-10/27

I will be in the area from 10/24-10/27, and am looking for things to do.

Checked out the Franklin website and found a Pumpkinfest on 10/24. Can a person see the festival and the town of Franklin in one day? How about Leiper---would that take one day too? Both look like interesting nice areas to go through.

How far away would the Ryman be? and the Opry?

Thanks in advance for the information.

Yes, you can go to Pumpkinfest and see Franklin in one day. It shouldn't take all day for the festival, it just depends on what you're interests are, they have crafts booths, food vendors, and all the little shops around the square will be open, they have the downtown area blocked off for this festival and I highly recommend you go, it is really fun! Also, it depends if you want to tour the Carter House and the Carnton Plantation during the day, but they will have haunted stuff going on as well, check their website for more info.

Leiper's Fork is closer to Franklin (I believe) and it is a small little town, but very beautiful area for driving, they have a few stores and restaurants and Franklin is about 25-30 minutes from Nashville.

Thanks for the info.

I'll be there 3 days, and going to Ryman and Opry at night, and after researching, looks like Franklin/Brentwood might be the area to stay, instead of Nashville. Trying to decide between a chain hotel and a VRBO, difference in price and of course, locality, hard decision to amke.

Any other little cities like that in the area?

The Franklin City Center from the hotel is 2 miles and yes you can complete a visit in one day. Leipers Fork is a great area as well Stop in and say hello to the Judds while you are there. Grand Ol Opry is 20 minutes from the hotel and we can arrange tickets for you. The old Ryman Auditorium does daily site seeing tours as well. When visiting Franklin you must visit Pucketts restaturant.

Thanks for the offer but already have Opry tickets and have toured the Ryman already. Was looking for things to do outside of Nashville in other little cities.
