I didn't find any great stores here. A lot of sweets shops. And most everything was overpriced. Would not recommend; better stores on Main Street.

We had such a good time wandering around this little village within Frankenmuth with all its interesting shops. It is so pretty. Whoever did the layout did a splendid job. The flowers are spectacular as is the little river running through. Go shopping!!

Walked through the shops and sat along the river. Quaint little places. All the shop keepers were pleasant and helpful. Fair prices in most if the shops. Family friendly and thankfully all shops without good are pet friendly for those of us that travel with pets! All in historic Frankenmuth.

They added these shops years ago and I really like going over there. The best time to go is Memorial Day weekend when they have the Dog Bowl. They have fun stores here that are great to keep the littles interested, like a mirror maze and candy shop.

We spent a lot of time in the Funky Skunk, which carries a good selection of imported Irish wool sweaters. We also browsed through many shops which had merchandise spilling outside their front doors. There's a yummy shop full of flavored oils and vinegars - I highly recommend a stop here.

This was a nice shopping center to walk around. They had many interesting shops, family things to do, and places to either eat or get snacks. Within walking distant from the Bavarian Inn Restaurant.

( anniversary) The girl snapped a few pictures, there was a problem with all of them. !! Big shadows behind us reflections,from the fluorescent lighting and flash. She redid the pictures only to make them worse!! We ended up paying $30.00... More

This was a VERY enjoyable ride down the River on the paddlewheel boat called the Belle ... The captain and owner of the boat was very informative. Some of his explanations were live and others were recorded and both were extremely helpful and informative. His sons were on board to assist, too, so this was wonderful to know the whole... More

This was my second time to the River Walk shops. The area is very pleasant with beautiful flowers. But the shops make me feel like they are "souvenir stores", instead of offering locally homemade items or specialty items. Many items are cheaply made and overpriced. I did not go into all the shops, just a few, so maybe I missed... More

While somewhat enjoyable, the maze was dirty, filled with screaming unattended children, and seemed to be run by staff that could care less. Interested in their hand held devices rather than making the place enjoyable.
