I could have spent twice as much time here as we did. There is such a unique array of shops and there really is something for everyone. I didn't pass a shop that I wasn't tempted to go in and explore. The setup is excellent, although a little confusing. I loved the fact that there were so many unique mom-and-pops... More

Atleast there was a variety of stores to shop in. Nothing spectacular but enjoyable place to walk around. You can get a nice picture of the covered bridge and there is a waterfall that is picturesque.

We walked through lots of shops and found lots of great buys! They are located in the basement below a restaurant about midtown in Frankenmuth. Definitely worth seeing.

These are somewhat newer shops in Frankenmuth. Some hip and fun things. The city is geared toward families and family fun. Def recommend.

Stop here if you're in town and have the time. It's a small mall (Bavarian Style). I'd recommend going to the cupcake shop and trying out some of the specialty cakes they have.

The River Place Shops are great- so many cute little shops in one location. Buy popcorn, cupcakes, sample wine, shop for clothes, candles- you can do it all! If you're an adult, you have to stop at the Grand Traverse Distillery. Sample 3 different wines or spirits for only $5 and keep the sampling glass as a souvenir. The bartender/employee... More

My husband and I recently stayed in Frankenmuth and even though the weather was cold, we decided to walk down to the River Place Shops. There's typically a lot more happening in the warmer months but we still enjoyed browsing the many shops there. I think my favorite shop is still the Michigan shop which offers a variety of souvenir-type... More
