Frankenmuth guide

Too often, visitors to some of America's favorite tourist towns are bombarded with promotional information, whether at their hotel or in local guidebooks. Nearly life-long Frankenmuth resident Lynn Marie-Ittner Klammer decided it was time for a change in the popular vacation destination she calls home.

Teaming up with Dirk Vanderwilt, founder of the Tourist Town Guides, a set of 18 travel guides focused on some of America's favorite tourist towns, Klammer created a guide dedicated to honest and independent advice. Entitled Frankenmuth: A Guide to Michigan's Little Bavaria, the guide begins with a friendly introduction and a general area orientation chapter, to inform readers of certain areas in the region. It then continues with personalized sections for the area of focus, including natural sites, Bavarian activities & events, and winter sports as well as the usual "Entertainment," "Dining," and "Attractions."

"I've lived in Frankenmuth for nearly my entire life and an related to the original settlers of the town," says Klammer. "When I came upon the opportunity to work with Mr. Vanderwilt to develop a Frankenmuth guide, I jumped at the chance. This Bavarian Christmas town is a major tourist draw and offers an economical, family-friendly vacation destination. I wanted to share my honest advice with visitors and locals alike who may not know about the historical, natural, and Bavarian-inspired sites available in Frankenmuth."
