Enchanted Wisconsin Garden is Book Lover’s Dream Getaway
A garden in Wisconsin has visitors feeling like they entered a completely different world thanks to its whimsical theme.
Bookworm Gardens in Sheboygan is a sprawling botanic garden that contains exhibits and features inspired by popular children's literature.
What Will Visitors See At Bookworm Gardens?
Bookworm Gardens features 70 different gardens. Each area is inspired by a different children's book.
For example, the Welcome Gateway contains areas inspired by Shel Silverstein books "Where The Sidewalk Ends" and "The Giving Tree." The Pond + Wetland Gateway will have visitors thinking about "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs."
According to its website, the non-profit Bookworm Gardens first opened in 2010. The concept was the brainchild of Wisconsin resident Sandy Livermore who "wanted to bring books to life one garden at a time."
Bookworm Gardens spans 7 acres. Each themed area includes a laminated book if you'd like to read the story that corresponds with the garden.
According to their website, you should expect to spend at least 2 hours at Bookworm Gardens if you want to see everything.
