For almost 30 years, the Frankenmuth Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau has been creating and distributing a comprehensive Visitor’s Guide.
The new guide acts as a planning tool but also a beautiful editorial piece because – let’s face it – this year, the photographs are outstanding thanks to you, our visitors! As you flip through the pages, you will notice the use of “fan photos” and visitor quotes that have been pulled from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. So if you are in town enjoying a festival or just strolling down Main Street, all you have to do is snap a cool photo, let us know what you are up to in Frankenmuth and post it on your favorite social network with #seefrankenmuth. You never know, you could be featured in our 2018 edition or in a blog post!
This year’s guide also has a fully collapsible map in the back that can be easily pulled out and used for easy navigating. And if you have youngsters that are bored in the car, just turn to page 24 for a full spread of kids games and learning activities.
The guide’s shape has changed over the years, going from a full brochure size to a more pocket-friendly guide booklet. What hasn’t changed are the valuable listings by category; lodging, dining, shopping and attractions. What has also been added are handy charts showing an “at a glance” view of dining options and hotel amenities.
Our beloved Bavarian Bargains Coupon Books are also ready for the taking. The 2018 Coupon Book has a whopping 80 offers to save right here in town and the best part… the Coupon Books are FREE (as well as the Visitors Guides)! Just stop into the Visitor’s Center anytime to grab one and start saving on your favorite Frankenmuth attractions, restaurants and shops.
In one year, the Frankenmuth Chamber and Convention & Visitors Bureau distributes over 200,000 visitor’s guides and 85,000 coupon books. The materials are requested from all over the US and parts of Canada by visitors, motor coach companies, meetings, groups and travel agents. The visitor guide is the single best tool you can request – did we mention it’s FREE – before planning your trip to Michigan’s Little Bavaria. The CVB also provides “welcome packets” to groups which includes a visitor guide and coupon book, again, free of charge. Packets can be mailed, dropped off at your hotel in Frankenmuth or picked up at the Visitor Center.
