What Michigan Hotel Was Named Most Family-Friendly in the State?

For the best place to take the kids a little R & R, Love Exploring zeroed in on a legendary Michigan favorite town and its whimsical hotel for the top choice. Frankenmuth's Barvarian Inn Lodge. We had our huge family reunion there when the kids were younger and I've got to say, it was the perfect place for both adults and kids so the choice is on point in my book.

"This Bavarian-themed resort is within walking distance of history museums, riverboat tours and fun souvenir shops, though it’s also a destination in its own right. Bavarian Inn Lodge is right by the Cass River and the theme runs throughout every detail, from the traditional, comforting meals to the costumed staff and the decor in the cozy rooms. Less traditional, perhaps, are the family-friendly arcade games and the indoor water park, which has three pools plus hot tubs and slides", Love Exploring wrote. 

So if you're looking for a quick overnight with the kids, or a full-on vacation spot, take the gang to Frankenmuth and enjoy a stay at Michigan's Best Family-Friendly Hotel the Bavarian Inn Lodge. Oh, and don't forget the chicken!
