This spring readeatlive/blog hopes to feature several worthy travel/tourist destinations in Michigan.
Today visit Frankenmuth, sometimes called Michigan’s Little Bavaria. If you like German style food, family fun opportunities, and the largest Christmas store anywhere, this is the place for you.
The Bavarian Inn Restaurant is one of two large restaurants on opposite sides of main street serving German style food. Most people opt for the world famous chicken dinners.
The dining room is inviting complete with a strolling musician and her accordion. Along with the chicken are more side dishes than you might wish for, not to mention tantalizing and delicious desserts. We liked the apple strudel.
After so much food, it’s time to stroll the grounds. Cross the wooden bridge.
There are more than forty shops nearby of all kinds.
At the Bavarian Inn Lodge……
and so many things to do and more places to eat.
18 holes of mini-golf
and a beautiful Sunday Brunch with all the trimmings and seasonal decorations.
Down the road is Bronners, the world’s largest Christmas store, or so it is claimed in these parts.
Yes, it’s for tourists, yes people love to go there. Everyone seems to have a very good time. Staff is the most polite and helpful I have ever encountered.
