About 20 minutes north of Franklin College is Indiana’s bustling capital, Indianapolis. Indy provides students with scenic parks and gardens, museums, theaters, a zoo, comedy and dance clubs, lots of shopping, and many other possibilities for an afternoon or weekend getaway.
The town of Franklin also offers big-time fun that won’t empty your wallet. Just a few blocks from campus, students have the opportunity to enjoy the Artcraft Theatre, an old-fashioned cinema featuring oldie-but-goodie films and even live performances. There is also a roller-skating rink and bowling alley mere minutes away from campus, as are many diners and gift shops. Popular chain restaurants and Wal-Mart are also conveniently close.
These are just a few of the most popular places to visit in the Franklin and Indy areas. Feel free to check them out by clicking on each to be directed to their Web site or a review page.
