City Sightseeing

This town is a striking example of a small village in the South, with a charming atmosphere and historic avenues. Franklin calls itself the ”Gem Capital of the World,” thanks to the overwhelming amount of gems and minerals coming from nearby mines. The Franklin Gem & Mineral Museum is housed in the old Macon County Jail, giving you multiple reasons to visit. There is more than mining history and gems to see while touring the facility, with native tribal artifacts and other pieces of history on display as well.The Scottish Tartans Museum is a unique and interesting institution, running through the complex history of Scotland. Due to the sizeable Scottish-American population in the area, the museum pays homage to the miners and immigrants who came to America from Scotland, bringing with them their customs and tartans, a traditional piece of clothing worn by Scottish people.You could always catch some live entertainment at the Smoky Mountains Center for the Performing Arts, a welcoming concert hall hosting lots of live events. This spacious venue is known to feature quite a few nationally touring musical artists. It offers great acoustics, tasty concessions, and over 1,000 seats. For such a small town, Franklin sure is a lot of fun, and there are other towns to visit with your campervan rental while you're visiting the western region of North Carolina.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
