Lots of things to see

It was nice to have so much in 1 place. Lots of things to look through. We found some shops with pretty good prices on tshirts & sweatshirs.

We were visiting the area with family from another county and it was great to here them describe the River Place Shops as "it looks like a place from the Movies." A little city atmosphere with cobble-stone like sidewalks that are heated in the winter. Many specialty shops unique to the area as well as Yankee Candle and many treat... More

This is a fun place to go shopping in specialty shops. The cupcake place is a winner of one of the cupcake wars shows. The popcorn store has tons of varieties of popcorn and is our favorite!

We have been here before and walked through again today. There is a variety of different stores but its the type of complex that you see in many tourist towns. Great Lakes Olive Oil and Sugar High Bakery were our 2 favorite stores.

There is a lot of shops here as well as things to do. A must see place to go while in Frankenmuth! There is something for everyone. Kids, pets, old, or young they have something for you here. This is also where you get on the riverboat at. So much to see and do, could spend the whole day here!
