Went there for the first time with my wife, kids and mother in-law. Super neat place with lots of fun activities for the kids to enjoy. I had fun too! They have a beautiful vegetable garden as well as a regular garden which are beautiful. I look forward to our next trip back home to visit this place again.

It looks like it's created for kids, but make that "kids of ALL ages"! Winding paths through gardens take the explorer to delightful surprises and views, colorful groupings of plants, whimsy, and stirs creative ideas. We almost skipped this attraction because it looked like it was going to rain and went anyway, thankfully! We had the place to ourselves on... More

Another amazing free Wisconsin attraction. We stopped here on the way to Lake Michigan for a little kitsch. What we left with was heart full of wonder. The place is laid out by story with little book boxes scattered throughout to sit relax and enjoy. Picture spots galore and joy abounds. My son loved it and my bookie wife was... More

This is a perfect place if you have an extra hour to spend. We were there in October and it was nicely decorated for Halloween with tons of pumpkins and even the statues were in costumes! Our kids (12 & 10) enjoyed the park and all the activities to do!

I am originally from Sheboygan, but have moved out of state for the past ten years. Last week, I brought my family back to Sheboygan for a visit and friends recommended we visit Bookworm Gardens. We went expecting some small gardens and little displays, and were stunned with the beautiful gardens, elaborate settings, and miniature buildings depicting beloved children's stories.... More

I wasn't expecting much when we first drove up, but it was a lovely surprise as we walked through the gardens and enjoyed the cleverly developed storybook displays. This is definitely a great place to take kids or grandkids, but it is also a great place for adults to enjoy as well. If you are in the area it is... More

Great place and very well manicured. Great place for some puctures and to sit and unwind while reading one of your favorite books. Only problem was that our kids didnt want to sit and read. They were a little more interested in exploring and getting back to water park.... This is a Must Visit destination...
