Wisconsin Dells - "Places to go" Feature #1...

We recently traveled to Wisconsin Dells, WI for a family vacation.  We found this neat area about 2 years ago when we traveled to Minnesota to visit the Mall of America.  From the highway you can see several waterparks and little did we know that Wisconsin Dells is known as "The Waterpark Capital of the World"

That's right, if you are looking for some waterpark fun, look no further because the "Dells" as they call it, really has it all when it comes to some wet fun!  Don't be fooled though as there are "boatloads" of other Wisconsin Dells attractions to see from one end of town to the other.  

The city takes it's name from the dells of the Wisconsin River, a scenic, glacially formed gorge that features striking sandstone formations along the banks of the Wisconsin River. Together with nearby Lake Delton, the city forms an area known as "the Dells", a popular Midwestern tourist destination.  The Dells has has an estimated 5 million visitors every year!

It is home to several indoor and outdoor waterparks like Kalahari Resort / Indoor Theme Park  and Great Wolf Lodge; and America's largest water and theme park resort, Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park. Other attractions in the Dells include the Original Wisconsin Ducks tour, numerous golf courses, mini golf, go-kart tracks, water sports, horseback riding, Tommy Bartlett's Thrill Show and Exploratory, Ripley's Believe It or Not museum, Timber Falls Amusement, the Ho-Chunk Casino and many other places of interest. Most attractions are located on the Strip, otherwise known as the Wisconsin Dells Parkway. Accommodations range from economical motels to RV parks to chain hotels to themed resorts featuring indoor and outdoor waterparks and other amenities.

If you are looking for a fun filled vacation spot for your family we would HIGHLY recommend "the Dells".  Please continue to follow this series where I will soon be posting about several of these tourist locations that my family and I had the opportunity to visit while visiting Wisconsin Dells, WI!
