Same type of souvenir shops everywhere. We skipped over half. It was a nice walk by the water& covered bridge, but not enough unique things to see.

A great feel to this small shopping area which houses very good specialty shops. Really beautiful outdoor areas. Great options for shopping and eating. Nice!

You will be hard pressed to find a better place to stay. Your mere steps away from the scenery. Forget the car, you can walk Frankenmuth with ease. After a great day relax in the pool/hot tub. Great free breakfast in the morning.

There are some cute little shops and snacks/ice cream stands. However the place was extremely crowded.
