A Wholesome Wonderland

The Appledore in Bay City

Welcome to the coziest spot in the “mitten” state. East Michigan is a wholesome and comfortable place that will make you feel at home the moment you arrive. Comprised of hard-working communities with deep histories, the feel of this region is down-home and uncomplicated.

Bavarian hospitality is what Frankenmuth is known for. Have an Old World dining experience and learn how to make your very own apple strudel or German pretzels. Delight in the authentic German glockenspiel, which was built specially for the Bavarian Inn Restaurant in the 1960s. Four times each day at noon, 3, 6, and 9 p.m., the thirtyfive- bell carillon plays familiar songs and the tower illustrates the story of the Pied Piper of Hamlen for enraptured guests.

In addition to German heritage, Frankenmuth celebrates Christmas 365 days a year. Enjoy exploring every nook and cranny of the world’s largest Christmas store, Bronner’s  CHRISTmas Wonderland. It is the size of 1.7 football fields and has any gift or decoration your heart could desire. Visit the Silent Night Memorial Chapel, a replica of the original chapel located in Oberndorf, Austria, or take a breathtaking evening drive along Christmas Lane, a one half-mile display of over 100,000 lights. In addition to homespun elegance and low-key charm, Eastern Michigan is chock full of historical spots that will bring you back to a fascinating time in Michigan’s history.

Located along the Flint River, the city of Flint is exploding with culture and activity. Cruise Mott Lake on a charming paddlewheel riverboat. Explore the Flint Farmer’s Market with several produce vendors, a great meat market, poultry, breads and baked goods, cheese, a wine shop, an art gallery, a cafe, middle-eastern and Mexican groceries, and many unique gifts.  Immerse  yourself in the history of the area by visiting the museums and cultural center. Treat yourself to an afternoon of culture by strolling through the Flint Institute of Arts.

Experience the Midland Center for the Arts, where art, science, history, music, theatre, dance, films and classes are under one roof!  While in Midland stroll through the rooms of the Alden B. Dow home. Dow studied architecture with Frank Lloyd Wright, and it is clear that Wright had a considerable influence on Dow. You can view his architectural studios and private residence.  Alden was the son of the founder of Dow Chemical, the second largest chemical company in the world.

The East region of Michigan is an incredible stretch of Michigan to visit. A mix of history, wholesome family fun, and superior  shopping mixed with small town charm and delectable culinary options makes for quite the trip.
