  • We came to Frankenmuth for the day, did all the regular stuff like Bronners, Zehnders for lunch and shopping but we stopped here and found lots of items for the everyday person and gifts for family...  more »
  • Another Must See when in Frankenmuth. Worth the stop just to see the beautiful buildings, many streams. river, and huge covered bridge next door. Great selection of owner operated stores.  more »
  • Lots of cute little shops. They have a great popcorn store. You can do a wine tasting at Cherry Republic (while the kids do a soda tasting). There's an amazing little bakery called the Sugar High Bakery. They even had some allergen free treats and some pet treats. We love shopping and looking here.
  • A great location to explore some shops with nothing but foot traffic. Everything from the garden trinkets to wine and random items in-between. Has the entrance for the river cruise. Which I hear is amazing. Check out the Cherry Republic for wine and soda sampling. 5 free, $7 for a glass including a few more samples. Take a stroll through and see what fancies you 😊
