What to Do in Wisconsin this Spring
It's officially spring, which means the weather in Wisconsin is finally climbing above freezing. The snow and ice are melting, and Wisconsinites are ready to get outside and enjoy some fresh air. At CreditBox, we understand just how exciting the upcoming warmer season can be, so we've compiled a list of exciting spring activities and other things to do in Wisconsin over the next few months.
Milwaukee County Zoo
As the weather in Wisconsin warms up, the 1,800 animals that live inside the Milwaukee County Zoo come alive. The zoo sits on over 190 acres and has been home to many famous residents over the years, including the second polar bear born in captivity and Gertie the Duck, who was a favorite back during World War I. Today, the zoo, which was built in 1892, is home to cheetahs, penguins, gorillas, a king cobra, snow leopards, rhinos, hippos, and many more exotic creatures. Visiting the Milwaukee County Zoo is one of the best spring activities for the whole family.
Muscoda Morel Mushroom Festival
Every year during the weekend after Mother's Day, the Muscoda Morel Mushroom Festival becomes one of the most exciting things to do in Wisconsin. People come from around the world to buy and sample mushrooms, but there's much more to the Morel Mushroom Festival than that. A flea market, games for kids, crafts, helicopter rides, wine tastings — it's a huge event that's become one of the more beloved spring activities in the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway.
Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad
If you're looking for something a little more laid back to do, consider a ride on the Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad. The historic train claims to be the only moving bed and breakfast train in the country, though it also offers dinner train rides and sight-seeing tours. No matter the weather in Wisconsin, it's a fun-filled activity, and the scenery is especially beautiful in spring.
Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park
If you're a sports fan in Wisconsin, there's only one place you need to be in the spring: Miller Park. Watching a Milwaukee Brewers game in Wisconsin is a must for your "things to do in Wisconsin" bucket list. Opening Day is usually in April each year.
Boerner Botanical Gardens
Last but not least, be sure to check out the gorgeous spring blooms at the Boerner Botanical Gardens. The gardens take up dozens of acres and include hundreds of varieties of roses. They're the perfect place to take a walk on a lovely spring day, but you can also join guided tours or take a few classes. The gardens typically open up again in late April following a winter closure.
