Bronner's Christmas Wonderland (left) (bronners.com) brings more than 2 million visitors a year to the town that calls itself "Michigan's Little Bavaria" (about 15 miles southeast of Saginaw). Bronner's is the self-proclaimed world's largest Christmas store, with more than 6,000 types of ornaments alone. But there's more to this pretty community of 4,900 than the giant year-round holiday store.
Fortify yourself with a bratwurst lunch at the Frankenmuth Brewery (frankenmuthbrewery.com) or fried chicken at Zehnder's (zehnders.com), then explore 130 specialty shops along Main Street and in River Place, a newer shopping area modeled after a German village. Watch cheeses being made at Frankenmuth Cheese Haus (frankenmuthcheesehaus.com) and wool being processed at Zeilinger Wool Company (zwool.com). Or hear 1,000 clocks chime at Frankenmuth Clock Company (frankenmuthclock.com), reminding you time is ticking away till Christmas.
