The 20 th annual Door County Season of Blossoms is an 8-week long celebration of blossoming beauty framed by 300 miles of scenic Lake Michigan shoreline.  Highlighting this celebration of spring is the arrival of the peninsula's renowned cherry blossoms. The county's 2,000 plus acres of cherry orchards are expected to begin blooming in southern sections of this 70-mile long peninsula in mid-May, with blossoms spreading northward about 10 miles per day.

To add to the cherry blossoms, since 1993 residents and businesses on this bucolic peninsula have planted more than 2.2 million daffodil and tulip bulbs in public displays and personal gardens while Trillium, native orchids and other wildflowers spread like a colorful blanket through open meadows and forests.

Throughout the spring season many of Door County's finest inns, resorts and B&B's offer special lodging packages with value-added items such as gift baskets, dinners for two, winery tours, massages and more.  As an added bonus, get a $25 Door County Gift Certificate upon check-in with any Season of Blossoms lodging package.
