If I may suggest a very neat place to visit in Frankenmuth that is not on the main drag that you may find of interest?
I was born and raised in Saginaw, just up the road from Frankenmuth and after church on Sundays, my family would often take a ride out there for something to do (back when "going for a ride" was a cheap way to entertain a family!), as well as it's tradition every year that my sister takes her 7 grand kids (and myself) all to Bronner's to look at the displays, and pick out an ornament for our trees, then to the Bavarian Inn for dinner.
There's a Luthern Church west of town..ya can't miss it if you just look up..it's the tallest steeple around and can easily be seen from a distance. (Back behind Zehenders way) Anywho..
Across the street from this church, is what our family calls "The Pilgrim Cemetery" - actually it's an indian cemetery and where the first settlers of Frankenmuth are buried. There's a very neat log building there that was used as a church, school, and meeting place back in the late 1700-early 1800's. If you go, notice the short door frames of the building. Amazing how we've grown taller over the Centuries. There's a large rock that gives the history of how the Chippewa Indians came to the area and worked with the Germans to settle Frankenmuch, and other information about the small pox epidemic and how it effected Frankmuth back then.
Anyway..this is just a place "off the beaten path" that not many people know of..not a tourist trap - just a piece of German History. (With a maiden name like "Schmieder", you know I know about Frankenmuth!).
Wish I could make it that weekend as I do have to "go home" to visit family sometime this summer..
Enjoy your stay..just thought I'd make a suggestion on this cemetery, as it's my favorite place to visit when I'm in Frankenmuth!
