Frankenmuth Holiday Shopping Is Warmer Now, For Your Pleasure
Frankenmuth, Michigan is widely known for its Little Bavaria and Holiday appeal. Heck, in addition to fantastic Kern's Sausage, Mackinac Fudge Shops and a great brewery, they even have heated sidewalks in part of the city. That's always a plus in a cold Michigan winter.
Does Frankenmuth, Michigan have a heated shuttle to get around town?
Weekend trips around Frankenmuth just got better for the holiday shopping & hanging-out-with-friends season. Each weekend (Friday through Sunday) there's a Christmas Shuttle. Also known as, a heated sleigh to get you from ice skating & chicken dinner to an adult beverage and shopping at places with "haus" in the name... all around town.
What are the hours of operation for Frankenmuth's Christmas Shuttle?
Each Friday & Saturday the Frankenmuth Christmas Shuttle runs from 11am-9pm and Sunday's 11am-7pm. Unfortunately, it doesn't run the entire winter season -- that would be nice--especially during Snowfest in January. You'll only be able to take advantage of the shuttle until the Sunday before Christmas, annually. That said, at least you get a small reprieve from bitter cold winds forming icicles on your eye lashes while wandering around the city doing all the fun things.
Reading through the comments on Frankenmuth's Facebook page reminds me how much Michiganders take advantage of the city being so close. Not enough people make time to visit, IMO. It's a great place to go for a staycation or romantic getaway (they even have horse drawn carriage rides). Perhaps some think it's too tourist-y, but I think you'll find otherwise.
