You don’t have to travel far to have fun. Head to Michigan’s Little Bavaria for timeless family fun in Frankenmuth.

Enjoy more seasonal fun and plan your trip for Scarecrow Fest – Kids Weekend on October 22nd and 23rd. Launch a pumpkin from a catapult, try your hand at pumpkin bowling, pumpkin painting, arts and crafts and take a ride on Grandpa Tiny’s barrel train.

Bring On The Holiday Cheer

Let the countdown to Christmas begin! Let the kids pick out an ornament for the tree, chat with Santa on the hotline and put on your favorite holiday album for the drive-thru light show at Bronner’s.

Check On The Reindeer at Grandpa Tiny’s Farm

Keep in the holiday spirit while holding on to fall. Check on the reindeer and other animals at Grandpa Tiny’s farm, head to the pumpkin patch and grab cider and donuts!

Have A Treetop Adventure

Make a reservation for the Frankenmuth Aerial Park and test your skills on the ropes course and zip line. Participants fly through the air, swing through trees and challenge themselves on an aerial obstacle course.

Get Lost In A Corn Maze

The Frankenmuth Corn Maze has five acres of corn stalks, two and a half miles of trails, three bridges and 20 game stations! Explore the maze during the day or with a flashlight at night.

Enjoy a Family Dinner + Staycation

Frankenmuth requires a family dinner. Turn off the phones and enjoy a fried chicken dinner (and buttered noodles) at Zehnder’s or Bavarian Inn (the American v. Lafayette of mid-Michigan). Make it an overnight stay and book a room at either hotel and enjoy an indoor waterpark too!
