Franklin Reviews

2 reviews
Franklin is a small town with only one grocery store and one light. As compared to other cities, Franklin is very safe and family friendly. Although, with limited space to build comes limited jobs. There are no activities for family and teens, however, commuting to nearby towns is no problem. The schools are strict on dress code and test scores are high. The sports are a big deal, especially football.

It's a small town in the middle of nowhere. Honestly, everybody focuses just a bit to much on sports.
