Come Home to Franklin County

Travel the trails of Franklin County through acres of farmland and forests. Trek back to the frontier settlements and forts, stopovers along the Underground Railroad, and sites of Civil War raids and invasions. Woven between the stories that made America’s history are the verdant, rolling hills and azure skies; old-fashioned ice cream parlors and bakeries with shoo-fly pies and sticky buns; orchards with succulent, sweet peaches in July and crisp, juicy apples in October; theatres and inns; ski slopes and golf courses; and clean, charming towns where people still smile, stop, and speak to you.

“Franklin County is a small bit of heaven in the middle of South Central
Pennsylvania. I regularly ski at Whitetail and enjoy the laid-back
attitude of the people and the business owners in the area.
From Antiquing to Restaurants, to charming Shops,
to Historical Sites, you should definitely make
Franklin County a destination for your
weekend getaway!”

Georgina Cranston
Executive Director of Greencastle Chamber of Commerce

“A perfect day for me begins with a run on the golf course
near my home, lunch out with a dear friend and an afternoon
wandering around town exploring the nooks and crannies of the
unique shops here in Greencastle. It sounds corny but
it’s true! I love not having to venture very far
from home to find treasures for my home
or my garden!”

Fabio Carella
owner and head chef of Fabio’s Events & Catering

“One of my favorite things to do in Franklin County to clear
my mind is to go to Caledonia Park or a drive on one
of the many beautiful country roads and stop periodically
to take photos of the many beautiful landscapes.
I also love going to the many produce stands
throughout Franklin County.”

“Some of my favorite spots are in Waynesboro, a quaint
little town offering world class Sushi and Asian cuisine at
Sapporo’s on the square and fine chocolates at Zoe’s.
Above all I love to peruse the Art Galleries that dot
Main Street, especially when Destination Arts is in
full swing and music is filling the streets.”

Kelly Spinner

“I like to relax at Hot Java with friend and family and listen
to great music, enjoy my BYOB
and chicken on a stick.”

Sarah Donahoe

“One of the favorite things I like to do in Franklin County
is pack a picnic lunch and head to Caladonia State Park
with my husband and my boys to hike,
splash in the streams
and just enjoy the beauty.”
