Same type of layout, same sort of shops as Mackinaw Crossings, with the exception of a couple of pricey women's boutiques which seemed oddly out of place, not at all in keeping with Frankenmuth's affordable getaway image. Like Mackinaw Crossings, this is an outdoor mall, not a nice place to be in inclement weather. (It cleared out quickly when it... More

I liked the way these shops are arranged around each other. Lots of choices and real quaint. One shop that was my favorite was a shopping for all kinds of socks.

This was a nice place to stop at. A great variety of shops that are more mom and pop but also some chain stores like Yankee Candle. They have a large fairy garden amongst other neat things to look at. There's also a handful of small food shops like beignets, cupcakes, etc. will stop here again on my next trip.

While visiting family in Michigan, we ventured to River Place Shops in Frankenmuth. All the ponds were frozen, yet pleasing. Kids had a great time visiting each of the shops.

A good place to visit while in Frankenmuth. I especially liked their bead shop and the Michigan favorites - Spoons and Cherry Republic. Compact with a nice variety of offerings.

I personally didn't see a lot of things I wanted there. There were several different specialized shops there.
