14. Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden – Springfield, MA
What better way to commemorate the beloved creator of wacky prose and fanciful illustrations than with a playful sculpture garden depicting some of his most famous characters?
The memorial garden is housed at the Springfield Museum in the very city where Theodor Seuss Geisel was born.
A stroll through the garden will reveal a 14-foot Horton The Elephant, a 10-turtle-tall tower from Yertle the Turtle, the Grinch and his Dog Max, and many other favorite characters.
The sculptures are set in a whimsical garden filled with winding pathways and imaginative landscaping that will make you feel as if you have been transported into the world of Seuss.
