So, take these tips for planning the perfect ladies’ weekend in Frankenmuth, and get ready to leave the guys behind with nothing but shopping, wine-ing, and dining in sight!

1.) Shop Frankenmuth With Friends

Whether you’re making the trek to one of the Midwest’s largest outlet malls in nearby Birch Run or shopping our many Frankenmuth boutiques or specialty shops, there’s no better way to spend your girls’ getaway than shopping with friends. Browse Frankenmuth River Place Shops – a German-themed outdoor shopping mall with over 40 unique stores – or visit other Main Street Frankenmuth favorites from clothing boutiques to jewelry shops.

2.) Soak Up Seasonal Mani’s & Pedi’s

At Serendipity Wellness Spa, the pedicure menu is pure perfection (from Tranquil Ocean to Tropical Paradise) and the other services – from Moroccan Oil Manicures to Girlfriends Escape Packages – are every bit as enticing. Settle in here for a Seaweed Detoxifying Wrap or a Sugar Body Polish, and get ready to relax and rejuvenate with best friends by your side.

3.) Bike With Your Best On The PedAle Trolley

Grab your best gals and climb onto the PedAle Trolley for a city tour or pub crawl through Michigan’s Little Bavaria. Choose three to five stops from Frankenmuth shops, restaurants, pubs, wine bars, and attractions, and get ready to bike on this 16-person pedal trolley with your best friends along for the ride.

4.) Enjoy Ladies Night Out (On The Water!)

When you climb aboard the electric-powered boats of Frankenmuth FunShips, nothing but delicious Michigan wines and handcrafted gourmet chocolates are in the forecast for you and your closest friends. Take a wine & chocolate tasting tour, or rent AquaCycle paddleboats to set out for your own ladies’ adventure!

5.) Go Wine Tasting With The Girls

Whether wine tasting at the Frankenmuth Tasting Room of Michigan’s oldest winery – St. Julian Winery – sipping wines on tap paired with custom, craft-your-own charctuerie boards at Prost!, browsing jewelry beads while wine tasting inside the Modern Craft Winery Tasting Room at Frankenmuth River Place Shops’ Bead Haven, or savoring at Black Star Farms’ Tasting Room, the wonders of wine tasting are all around when you visit Frankenmuth with your favorite gals.

6.) Brunch With Your Besties

From made-to-order crepes inside a Parisian-inspired creperie and cafe to “brunchtails” and build-your-own bloody mary bars: morning meals are a big deal here in Frankenmuth. So, plan time on your Frankenmuth girls’ getaway to fuel up at some of the best places for breakfast & brunch in Frankenmuth.
