Tis the season for checking out Franklin, Tennessee’s holiday light displays.
An interesting way to see all of the Christmas lights is to hop on the Franklin Trolley and let them chauffeur you through the town to gaze at all of the glittering decorations.
One caveat: infants and children are NOT encouraged to attend. That is, unless you want to pay $15 a seat for them.
My guess is… most of the nights are sold out anyway. And they really need those seats for as many paying adults as they can fit on each trolley.
With that in mind, it should be an enjoyable tour… for the adults!

We moved from Florida to Tennessee in 2001. All signs point to the fact that we will probably retire here — by choice. We L O V E Nashville! Our favorite places to live are just south of the City — we've had houses in Brentwood, Franklin, and Spring Hill. And we have properties in Leipers Fork, Cookeville, and Lewisburg.
