There are a lot of reasons to love Williamson County. It’s close commute to Nashville, its top rated schools, the family friendly communities throughout the county. These factors make it easy to see why families are flocking to the area. But did you know that Franklin was recently named #2 in a Bankrate study for top cities for retirement? Turns out the city has just as many great perks for seniors as it does for younger families.
Here are a few of the reasons why retirees are moving to Franklin, TN.
