I like Frankenmuth, Michigan.
It’s the ‘little bavaria’ of Michigan (like Helen, Georgia) – but in all its kitschy-ness, it really appeals to me! Most all of the buildings have an alpine-style architecture, even including the chain hotels.
Bronner’s is a *fabulous* place to pick up ornaments for friends for their Christmas trees….and they have a HUGE selection of Department 56 — in fact, they had a non-sectarian Krispy Kreme building that Av got. Yay!
