Festival Country Indiana visitor center

Head to the visitor center to say cheese in the photo booth or pose in front of an 11-foot apple, a real go-kart, a skydiving mural and other displays. The red front doors are also a popular backdrop.

Kuji Alley and Artcraft Alley

These colorful fish swim along the walls in Kuji Alley, located off East Court Street in downtown Franklin. The Artcraft Alley has 200 overhead stars, and it's an even more cool sight at night because the stars glow. You can find more than 10 other murals in Festival Country on our list here.
