Michigan’s Little Bavaria is welcoming visitors once again. There are noticeable changes, for the better, as local leaders and business owners further commit to cleanliness and guest safety.
“We understand these are confusing times and expectations are more diverse than ever,” reads the Frankenmuth Convention and Visitors Bureau website. “In Frankenmuth, we care. We always have and always will. We care about our employees and their families. We care about our guests, whether you visit once a year or once a week.”
The Frankenmuth community is always focused on cleanliness, whether that means maintaining sanitary streets or well-manicured flower beds and streetscapes. And now, business owners are even more diligent to ensure guest safety.
Numerous safety measures are in place throughout the city. Visitors can expect community-wide signage expressing common standards, hand sanitizing stations for public use, physical distance barriers where necessary, free masks and more.
Additionally, Frankenmuth is inviting visitors to wear a face mask, maintain six feet of distance, frequently wash hands and to plan ahead as some places may require reservations.
A full list of safety measures and up-to-date business information is available online.
Take it outside for unique dining
Frankenmuth prides itself on friendly hospitality through its restaurants, where an experience is sterling start-to-finish. Many dining establishments are open for inside seating, however this new normal presents unique outdoor dining opportunities.
Take-out options remainavailable from many restaurants with the encouragement to call-in an order and picnic in one of Frankenmuth’s 18 green, grassy parks.
Visitors can enjoy food from their favorite restaurant on a picnic blanket at Cass River and watch the kayakers and ducks paddle on by. Additionally, Heritage Park features pavilions with picnic tables for rent. Grills are also available, so people can pick up authentic Frankenmuth brats from Kern’s Sausages or Willi’s Sausage and cook up their own German feast.
Other options include the Cass River Boat Launch and Memorial Park, which are both equipped with picnic tables. No matter where one decides to dine outside throughout Frankenmuth, the Bavarian architecture makes for a memorable dinner backdrop.
A list of restaurants offering to-go options is available via the Frankenmuth CVB website. Numerous restaurants also provide online ordering.
With expectations of this year being ever-changing, the Frankenmuth CVB is committed to sharing any updates, developing news and resources. Furthermore, the organization will work with media to prevent the spread of misinformation and help the public understand the pandemic’s adverse effects on the tourism industry.
People are encouraged to follow Frankenmuth on social media for regular messaging regarding the changing conditions.
“We have missed you on our streets, in our shops, and creating new memories with your loved ones,” reads the Frankenmuth CVB website. “The fun has not vanished from our town, state, or our phone number (800-FUN-TOWN), it has simply taken a vacation.”
The wait is over to experience Michigan’s Little Bavaria again – safely and responsibly.
