Explore South Franklin

When the last tour ship of the 2011 season sailed south, I walked down one side of South Franklin Street and up the other. I was interested in how many stores celebrated by closing and locking their doors. I got 69. I was surprised by that big number. I probably missed some; there may be more.

We all know the stores that remain open on Front Street (bless their hearts). And we all know the stores towards the north end of South Franklin Street that stay open. But did you know there are two really marvelous discoveries-to-be-made all the way down at the south end of Franklin Street? Go check it out. And afterward, get a great book and enjoy the views at our downtown library. Then cross the street for a cup of coffee and a heavenly sweet!
