Snowman, bears and penguins.

Bavarian-Themed Christmas Town

Bronner's Christmas Wonderland was a sight to behold! You're sure to find an occupation or hobby-specific ornament for literally everyone you know amongst the 50,000 items sprawling across 1 1/2 football fields. Penguins have moved to hang out with polar bears and a snowman.

If you plan on going to Bronner's around Christmas time, be sure to get there early in the day, because the crowds are huge later. You can make it through the entire place, but it's just hard to navigate and see everything. Also, if you are going to the Bavarian Inn or Zehnder's for dinner, it is wise to make reservations -- otherwise, plan on being in line for sometimes hours.

Bronners Christmas Store.

Bavarian-Themed Christmas Town

Bronner's Christmas Wonderland was well worth the 30 minute trip north of Flint. Billed as the largest Christmas theme Store in North America, I could see why. They give you a complimentary map when you walk in. A little strange seeing all the Christmas decorations and it is 90 degrees and September.

German Town of Frankenmuth

What's up with you guys not mentioning the lovely German town of Frankenmuth, Michigan? I've been there tons of times over my lifetime and I can't think of a nicer place to spend a Midwest weekend or even week at. The Bronner's Christmas Store, the Zender's Restaurants and the Bavarian Inn are all historic sites in MI and well worth mentioning.

Sorry. Bronner's got cut from our "Every Day is Christmas" tour at the last minute - not funny enough.
