So this Valentine’s Day, whether you are treating yourself, your significant other, spouse, siblings, friends, or family, take hold of each second and spend them with joy in Michigan’s Little Bavaria.

Start the day

sipping a pre-sunrise coffee at The Harvest Coffeehouse, Kaffee Haus, or N’Orlin’s Beignets & Coffee to taste local roasts.

While enjoying your fresh brew, take a serene stroll overlooking the soft sky or sip, sit, hold hands, and see the streams of the calm Cass River at the Cass River Boat Launch.

Heat up to the hospitality of brunch

at Honey B’s Eatery or savor the flavor at Oma’s Restaurant for delicious breakfast and lunch menu selections like ‘Lavender Pancakes’ and ‘Frankenmuth Favorite: Bavarian Benedict.’

Take time for a tranquil trip

to Serendipity Day Spa for a peaceful, revitalizing afternoon. Select a serene February special, and you might fall in love.

Shop for the perfect dinner date outfit with your loved one along the scenic Bavarian streets.

Find a wide variety of clothing pieces and accessories at Abby’s of Frankenmuth, Adorn Boutique, or Whitehouse Boutique. Then venture to Frankenmuth Florist Greenhouse & Gifts to select bright floral arrangements. Considering a Valentine’s Day memento that will last a bit longer? Take a peek through Creative Lane to find unique plants that will grow along with your relationship.

Walk on over to River Place Shops to pick out a midday chocolate, toffee, fudge, cupcake, or crepe treat from Zak & Mac’s Chocolate Haus, SugarHigh Bakery, or La Crepe du Jour.

For another flare of fairytale...

Tour through downtown on The New Frankenmuth Carriage Co. or Fantasy Carriage Company’s one-of-a-kind carriage ride to experience the beauty and warm atmosphere of Frankenmuth.

Elevate your dinner by eating at European-inspired Prost Wine Bar & Charcuterie or The Station 100 for an intimate, fine-dining culinary experience. And finish the night off with an after dinner dance with your special someone under the lights and stars at Heritage Park.

So take the day off, smell the fresh air, taste the salt-seasoned, crisped chicken, touch your loved one’s hand, and see the smiling faces, whole hearted community, Bavarian-adorned architecture, lights, nature, history, and tradition that is Frankenmuth.
