Cherry blossoms in Wisconsin cover all the state and turn it into a beautiful, white & pink paradise. However, there are two areas worth special attention. The first is the Driftless Area in southwestern Wisconsin, and the second is Bayfield on Lake Superior. Also, there is a special spot in Bayfield called Hauser's Superior View Farm, featuring a large hill with plenty of orchards.

More interestingly, you may check out the University of Wisconsin–Madison Arboretum. It features a wide selection of spring-blooming native wildflowers and trees, including cherry trees. Many visitors say it's a nice place to walk among wildlife peacefully.

Cherry Blossom Festival in Wisconsin

Door County, the easternmost county in the USA state of Wisconsin, is claimed to feature the best views of cherry blossoms in Wisconsin. Thanks to the summer climate and the good soil, it is a perfect place for cherries. In the general run of things, the trees bloom in mid-May, filling 2,500 acres (1012 ha) of orchards throughout the peninsula with a breathtaking spring display. Yet keep in mind that the blooming season lasts only for two weeks, so you need to act quickly to witness this beauty.

For example, you can head to Cherry Lane north of Forestville and south of Sturgeon Bay, which offers a full cherry bloom in mid-May. Another spot is called ​​Seaquist Orchards, located near the peninsula's northern tip, which is also open during this period.
