To shop at the world’s largest Christmas store, Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland, which takes up two entire football fields, you’ll have to travel to Frankenmuth. Another town with Bavarian roots, Frankenmuth also has a street called Christmas Lane decorated with hundreds of lighted displays, and businesses here go all out when it comes to holiday cheer – you’ll find the streets lined with lighted trees and garlands and other illuminated creatures. Make sure to pay a visit to the Bavarian Inn Lodge where the lobby Christmas tree is hung upside down from the ceiling. This is a very old European tradition that is not often recreated.
