Say hello to Michie the Fish, Michigan Meeting’s friend and traveling mascot. Throughout the year he shares photographs and stories from his various travels across Michigan’s premiere meeting and event destinations. Wondering why a tropical fish is swimming in the waters of the Great Lakes state? Fact is – he heard so many great things about Michigan that he just had to come experience it for himself! This month, Michie visited Zehnder’s and here are his adventures…
I started the trip off by checking into Zehnder’s Splash Village Hotel and Waterpark, the largest indoor waterpark in Frankenmuth, right next to Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in downtown Frankenmuth.
Once I got all settled in, I kicked back and relaxed while watching some TV in the beautiful Family Suite. My room came complete with a fireplace, a sitting room, two queen beds and 6 complimentary waterpark passes. Time to check out the waterpark!
Here I am floating on the Lazy River with the lifeguard. I also enjoyed the Splash Landing Play area, Dumping Bucket, Giggling Gorge and 4-story tube slides. It was so much fun and I felt so at home!
It’s right around dinner time, so I called the Front Desk and made a reservation at one of my favorite restaurants, Zehnder’s Restaurant just down the street.
This is me enjoying dinner and drinks with my friends at Zehnder’s Restaurant. Say cheese!!!
I saved money on my dinner because I get a FREE birthday dinner during the month of my birthday being a Rewards Member! Yum! You can sign up too: http://www.zehndersrewards.com and choose ‘Apply’.
After a delicious chicken dinner, I decided to stroll downstairs to Zehnder’s Bakery and Foodstore to check out all of the goodies. There were so many delicious treats and unique gifts to choose from and the staff was swimmingly helpful!
I perused a recipe out of Chef John Zehnder’s Cookbook, From Grandma With Love and just had to purchase it so I can eat Zehnder’s at home. You can also take Zehnder’s home with you by visiting Zehnder’s online store at http://www.zehndersstore.com.
After a fun day of shopping and dining, I caught up with Drumstick and my friend, Mini Drumstick outside the restaurant and we got a picture in front of Zehnder’s famous neon sign which celebrates its 75th birthday this year!
Just one more stop to fully enjoy the Zehnder’s experience: golfing at The Fortress! So I stopped by to brush up on my putting skills with Fortress golf member, Justin.
I had so much fun at Zehnder’s between splashing around at Zehnder’s Splash Village, enjoying my famous family style chicken dinner at Zehnder’s Restaurant, shopping at Zehnder’s Marketplace and golfing at The Fortress! There is so much to see and do here, you just can’t miss out! Click here to plan your trip to Zehnder’s…
