Rainy Weekend in Frankenmuth

We arrived in the rain and that is how the entire visit remained but we are grateful that we only got remnants of Ike and not his full strength as they got in Texas. Because of all the rain we were unable to visit the streets in Frankenmuth but we were able to do a few of my favorite things…

Many years ago when I was a young girl this place was magical… Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland …not so any longer…instead now it is so commercialized…more merchandising than displays now. Even though it was really nice walking through and imagining what we would have bought if we were still in the stationary home life…we decided we would have needed a big truck to take it all home. They have bulbs, lights, garland, trees (even our favorite black tree), knick knacks, anything and every thing you would need to decorate your space.

Then we had a Bavarian family style meal served at the Bavarian Inn…the atmosphere was so remarkable…the service was perfect…food was delectable…definitely a “Must Do” if ever in the Frankenmuth area.

We stayed at the Pine Ridge RV Campground in Birch Run...a few miles from Frankenmuth...$34 per night but still less expensive than the one other campground in the area...this park is very well kept...sites and roads are flat...trees everywhere...didn't get out much because of ALL the rain but it really looks like a nice park.
