Very cute and fun xhops within waking distance from the Bavarian inn. The ice cream at the fudge shop is the best. There are games and cute activities around the shops.

Enjoyable experience, reminds me of the nostalgia of Mackinaw Island. Alot of photo spots so you can have great memories of your trip. Be sure to bring your wallet so you can taste the goodies at the shops!

We went here recently to mostly do wine tasting at Modern Craft & Black Star Farms at the distillery there. Of course we did a lil shopping too! Great little mall with some favorite stores.

Lots of charming stores. Must visit the cherry store—they have lots of great samples and wonderful cherry cream soda. Kids loved the mirror maze.

My wife and I stayed with friends for a vintage base ball festival and found ourselves coming back to the shops between and after games all weekend to shop and explore. Huge variety and very friendly, gregarious staff. Love The Stadium!
