Tour Itinerary:

Day 1- Bronner's Christmas Store

As you make your way to your destination, you will stop at the world's largest Christmas store, Bronner's and spend the night near Frankenmuth, Michigan. This evening, first enjoy the Bavarian Inn's famous chicken dinner, then a guided tour of Frankenmuth.
Highlights: Bronner's Christmas Store, Guided Tour of Frankenmuth
Meals: Dinner

Frankenmuth, Michigan: The German word "Franken" represents the Province of Franconia in the Kingdom of Bavaria, and the German word "Muth" means courage, thus the city name Frankenmuth means "courage of the Franconians". The first settlers to settle this village were a mission group from the Lutheran church of Bavaria. They came to assist in settlement of the untamed Michigan frontier and to reach the Chippewa Indian tribe.
Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland : Bronner's Christmas Wonderland started from humble beginnings, quickly growing through several expansions to become the World's Largest Christmas Store with beautifully landscaped grounds covering 27 acres. But for originator Wally Bronner, the journey has always been about CHRIST, and "decorating hearts with peace and love." (www.bronners.com, accessed Jan 2, 2015)

Frankenmuth is also nicknamed "Little Bavaria." Tourism drives the local economy. The city draws over three million tourists annually to its Bavarian-themed shops and restaurants.

Day 2 - Mackinac Island

Your home for the next two nights will be at a Victorian hotel on the main street.
Highlights: Mackinac Island
Meals: Deluxe Continental Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
 
                 
Mackinac Island: Mackinac Island is set between Michigan's Upper and Lower Peninsulas in the Strait of Mackinac. Visitors take a passenger ferry to the Michigan Island from Mackinaw City or St. Ignace.
A trip to Mackinac Island is a journey to the best part of the past; to an older, slower-paced world. The sound of waves and freighters are showcased amidst the ever present clip clop of horses on this historic island. Motorized vehicles have been prohibited on the island since 1898 so travel on the island is either by foot, bicycle, or a horse-drawn carriage. The road encircling the island and closely hugging the shoreline is M-185, the United States' only state highway without motorized vehicles.

Highlights: Skull Cave, Arch Rock, Beaumont Memorial
Meals: Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Grand Hotel : Mackinac Island becomes a summer getaway location but the accommodations are limited so several railroads and a steamboat company joined together and formed the Mackinac Island Hotel Company, purchased land and broke ground for the Grand Hotel. It’s front porch, the longest in the world, became and still is a meeting place for all of Mackinac Island. The famous movie, Somewhere In Time, starring Jane Seymour, Christopher Reeve, and Christopher Plummer was filmed at the Grand Hotel in 1980.
Beaumont Memorial : Dr. Beaumont was the post doctor at Fort Mackinac. His historic research on the digestive system took place when a Mr. St. Martin was accidentally shot in the stomach. Dr. Beaumont was able to save the man’s life but a permanent hole remained exposing the man’s stomach allowing Dr. Beaumont to conduct and record his findings.

Greenfield Village: Greenfield Village is an outdoor history museum complex.

A collection of craft buildings such as pottery, glass-blowing, and tin shops provide demonstrations while producing materials used in the Village and for sale, the property houses a vast array of famous homes and buildings.

Some of the famous buildings of significance are: Noah Webster's Connecticut home, the Wright brothers' bicycle shop and home, a replica of Thomas Edison's Menlo Park laboratory complex from New Jersey, Henry Ford's birthplace, Henry Ford's prototype garage where he built the Ford Quadricycle, Harvey Firestone family farm from Columbiana, OH and the Logan County, Illinois courthouse where Abraham Lincoln practiced law.
