Young or Old, Take a Trip to Bookworm Gardens

One of the fun things to do in Sheboygan County is taking a trip to Bookworm Gardens.  Located just 25 min east of our Wisconsin bed and breakfast, it’s a short trip well worth the time.

“Bookworm Gardens is a vibrant, playful children’s garden that enhances literature, the natural world, and the imagination. Located in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the garden is adjacent to UW Sheboygan and is across from the UW Extension offices which house the Sheboygan County Master Gardeners.”

Kids will love it, but even if you’re not that young or don’t have kids with you, you’ll love taking a step back in time to reignite your imagination.  Two acres of property stretch across the grounds featuring various exhibits and gardens based completely on children’s literature.  “Over 60 different books are represented, selected by reading specialists, librarians, teachers, and kids.” Entrance is free and they offer classes throughout the gardens on horticulture, literature, art and cooking as well.  There’s also a small amphitheater where special events, small plays and concerts often take place throughout the day.   The gardens really offer something for everyone.  Even the young at heart can appreciate the unbelievable horticulture and creativity that goes into the creation and maintenance of these various plants.  They even have giant fruits and vegetables on hand you’ll be tempted to pick and take home.  The gardens are also a short distance from the downtown area of Sheboygan where you can find a nice place to enjoy lunch dinner or other activities.
