I always love coming here. The stores always have such unique items, and you can definitely catch some good deals. If you are a Perks member, your card is good at many locations. Can't wait to go back...may just have to do that during Snowfest!

Super cute shops but most of the store merchandise does not accurately reflect Frankenmuth's German heritage and could be found in a tourist area anywhere. Very picturesque area to enjoy walking around.

We had such a great experience. The first time we went with the whole family for my mom & dad's 50th anniversary. We had 15 adults and kids and everyone of us had fun, fun, fun for the Western Saloon theme picture! I took the immediate family and our dogs back the following week for a Pirate Christmas card picture.... More

While there are the usual t-shirt and fashion shops, jewelry, etc., I like the oddball stuff -- kids bounce house, olive oil, crepes, walk up bar, kids game room, used books, old time photos, Irish themed, dogs and cats, river boat rides, horse carriage, and more. European themed architecture in a circle setting -- easy to walk, lots of parking.... More

Don't visit if your hungry - you could eat your way from one end to the other with great stuff. The popcorn, chocolates, crepes, all were tempting. Nice game room to drop the kids off at.

Who ever heard that if you want to get more than one type of ice cream there is an additional charge? It is listed no where on their signs just the price for additional scoops. Feel that the girl behind the counter was lazy and just didn't want to scoop a variety.

Our family visited the Old Time Photo shop in the River Place a few weeks ago. The man and woman working there were excellent, fun, and professional. They assisted us in choosing a background and related clothing, helped us get quickly into garb and took about 15 pics of different poses. We were able to look through the digital photos... More

When we last visited it wasn't worth going. However the store fronts are filling up again and the new TERVIS store was fantastic. They had a great variety of styles including some new Christmas themed cups. The Yankee Candle store was one of largest we've ever been in with many choices and excellent sales staff who responded to every question.

After spending the day in Frankenmuth and enjoying the brewery, shops and of course, Bronners. We stopped in at the Grand Traverse Distillery in town. We have tried the cherry vodka at a friends house and new we had to have some of our own, but going way out to Traverse City, MI. is a 5+ hour drive one way... More
