We visited Frankenmuth for the first time this weekend and walked around this area popping into stores and window shopping. We did this durning the first snow storm so it had a nice Christmas feeling to it. Nice unique boutique stores mixed in with a few cheesy t-shirt stores. Noting to be overly excited about however worth spending a couple... More

We gave ourselves 2 hours to walk this interesting area before heading back to Canada. All the shops opened at 10:00 a.m. We didn’t enter all the stores, just a select few and totally enjoyed the morning experience. Before heading out, a stop at N’Orleans Cafe for beignets and coffee, both were very good and the owner is very friendly.... More

I loved all the little shops- from a sock store to a beef jerky/meat store to hello cats and dogs store there is something everyone can enjoy to shop at. I enjoyed my time shopping at each and I recommend it as a... More

We enjoyed the unique shops, but what we really came for was to get our family photo done at the "Frankenmuth Old Time Photos." We had a blast! Unfortunately, I didn't catch the name of the nice man and young lady assisting us but they were wonderful! It was so hard not to laugh during the pictures! They did a... More

Not a bad place to shop. They are a tourist trap, but have more options here than the other shops in Frankenmuth. Good place for families with children too. A game area where they can win prizes, a little play area outside not far from a brewery and then a lot of specialty shops. I always go to Cats and... More

Beautifully laid out and landscaped, unique shops and snack places. We enjoyed just strolling up and down the walkways window shopping. Popcorn store had great variety, candy and cupcake shops were very tempting.
