Living in Frankenmuth was great! It is a small, quiet town with lots of events almost every weekend. Lots of job opportunities especially for high school and college students. This town is very safe and the residents are friendly. I highly recommend Frankenmuth for family fun!

Frankenmuth is an amazing town with plenty of shops to explore, safe and beautiful streets to walk down, and music and smells to make all of your senses excited! I would not change anything about living there.
Frankenmuth is a very close knit community. It is a very safe place to live in which I definitely took advantage of when I was a kid. I never had to take certain precautions other kids did which looking back I am extremely thankful for. The only downside of living in Frankenmuth is when they have one of their big festivals going on. This makes our small town very, very busy, but at least we always had something to do.
