Best Ways Celebrate Spring In Bayfield!
It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago, we were bundling up in all the warmest winter gear we had as we shivered through sub-zero temperatures in early March. There’s one silver lining to the extra-long, extra-cold winter we had this year — it makes the arrival of the warm, Spring sunshine extra sweet!
To help shake off that cabin fever and enjoy all the best that springtime in Bayfield has to offer, here’s a list of some of the best ways to take advantage of the warmer weather!
Take a Cruise Around the Apostle Islands
What better way to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Bayfield area than with a breathtaking cruise around the Apostle Islands? The Bayfield area offers all kinds of options for whatever kind of adventure you’re interested in. Always wanted to learn how to sail? Northern Breezes Sailing School offers a variety of classes for all ages and skill levels! If you’d rather leave to work to someone else and just enjoy the ride, you’re more than welcome to simply charter a sailing trip, as well. For groups interested in doing some sightseeing while on the water, a voyage on a glass-bottom cruise ship with Apostle Island Cruises is just the ticket! Apostle Island Cruises also offers specialty cruise routes around Memorial Day weekend — they fill up fast, so be sure to reserve your seats ahead of time!
Get In a Few Rounds of Golf
With two fantastic courses that overlook Lake Superior, Bayfield offers not only top-notch golfing but also the opportunity to drink in the scenery as you make your way from tee to tee! Both the Apostle Highlands Golf Course and the Madeline Island Golf Club feature well-design, well-maintained courses that provide a fantastic experience for novices and seasoned pros alike. Note that the Madeline Island Golf Club is only reachable via a 20-minute ferry ride — it’s a great opportunity to make a day of it and check out what else Madeline Island has in store! Be sure to keep checking back on both courses to stay up-to-date on when tee times become available.
Visit a Flower Farm
Of course, Bayfield is perhaps best known for its amazing apple orchards — which have their time to shine in the fall, but the local green thumbs are still growing beautiful flowers and plants the rest of the year as well! From gorgeous flowers to delicious fruits, and fresh herbs, you’ll find top-quality greenery all around Bayfield. Plan a day of visiting all the local farms and greenhouses and take in all the fantastic sights and smells! Plus, there’s nothing like a home-cooked meal prepared with vegetables and herbs that were just plucked from the ground hours before they made their way to your plate.
Those are just some of the ways you can enjoy the Spring in Bayfield. For more information, be sure to check out our Bayfield Attractions page! Need a place to stay? Check out our lodging directory for all the available options.
