Bookworm Gardens is a great place for families to visit together. Some have gone so far as to call it a mini Disney Land! It’s a rare collection of gardens that are each designed after favorite children’s stories like Hansel & Gretel, Winnie the Pooh, and the Magic School Bus. The goal of Bookworm Gardens is to bring literature to life with children through the natural world. This 2 acre garden is sure to impress children and adults alike. Admission is free, however, if you love it you’re encouraged to make a donation.
Established in the 1920s this gorgeous state park is located on the pristine shores of Lake Michigan. It’s open daily from 6am to 11pm. It features a lovely nature center that was created to educate others about the park and conservation through interactive displays and even a short movie. In addition to the nature center you’ll love the trails offered and the surrounding sand dunes that are open for exploration.
This massive art center boasts 10 different galleries spaced throughout 99,000 square feet of space. It’s renowned for having a wide variety of folk and vernacular art along with art by self-taught and emerging artists. Even the bathrooms at the Kohler Art Center are works of art, with each one being created by a different artist. The art center is free to get into and a wonderful way to spend a rainy day.
