The name of Franklin is in homage to Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the nation. Nearly a century after it was established, Franklin became known as a "City of Homes" because of its growing residential areas. It sits adjacent to Oak Creek, Hales Corners, Greendale, Racine, and Waukesha. The city also houses one of the Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund sites, known as the "Fadrowski Drum Disposal Site." It has been largely remediated through limited excavation and landfill, although it is still an area of the city that is not developed.

When to Visit Franklin, Wisconsin

Since Franklin is within the Great Lakes Region, it has a climate that can change drastically from one day to the next, or even within a few hours. The area is known for its cold and snowy winters, along with humid, warm summers. A convection current forms in the mid-afternoon from Lake Michigan, resulting in light winds, which locals call the lake breeze. You'll feel it most if you visit between March and July.

During the winter months, the temperatures drop well below freezing. You may be able to score a lower hotel rate if you visit during this time, but make sure to bring plenty of warm clothing. Milwaukee is also known as the City of Festivals, with a variety of cultural and community events taking place throughout the year.
