Family Time

Family Time in Little Bavaria

The simple joys of life, family togetherness, and building traditions: That's Frankenmuth.

Take the complaining and arguing out of planning the family vacation this year. With two waterpark hotels, both equipped with arcade rooms and more chicken tenders and French fries than can possibly be eaten during your trip, Frankenmuth is a win, no matter if you have kids or are a kid at heart.

A day in Frankenmuth never starts and ends the same way. Begin the day challenging the kids to a game of Pac-Man, then jump in the pool at one of our amazing indoor waterparks. Take a walk on Main Street and stop into a restaurant for a world famous chicken dinner, delicious German selections, or a classic... gourmet pizza! Keep the fun going with a horse drawn carriage ride, a tour on the Cass River on one of two boat rides, or swing through the trees in our climbing park. Finish a jam-packed day with treats from one of the many sweet shops sprinkled throughout town.

When you're here, time seems to slow down. And time is something we don't have enough of these days. So take a beat and relax a weekend away in Frankenmuth, Michigan.

Frankenmuth was made for family vacations — and that’s something your whole crew can agree on.


Indoor waterparks are kind of our jam. And with two of the top indoor waterparks in Michigan, it's no wonder!


Little Bavaria. Big adventures. While you won’t find snow-covered alps to scale here (sorry, wrong Bavaria), what you will find is an idyllic Pure Michigan town with unspoiled green spaces and flower-lined streetscapes. Explore our countless outdoor fun options.
