Frankenmuth, Michigan: Historic and Family-Friendly Town Dubbed “Michigan’s Little Bavaria”
Frankenmuth was settled by a group of German Lutheran immigrants in the mid-1840s, and it retains the charm of that era and some fairy-tale charm. Nicknamed “Michigan’s Little Bavaria,” the city’s downtown has buildings with timber-lined facades (known as the River Place Shops) and cobblestone paths fringed with gardens. Swing by Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland, a holiday specialty store the size of one-and-a-half football fields, which brims with ornaments, festive decorations, and other Yuletide bric-a-brac. It’s also worth it to cruise down the Cass River on the Bavarian Belle Riverboat, which offers hour-long tours.
