Golfers wanting to end the season with a personal best score should get tee times on the calendar. Aim for playing the championship courses in the community to really test your swing. Check out these Wisconsin Dells golf courses.
If you’ve never taken a scenic river tour in the fall, then get that checked off your list already! Dells Boat Tours run through Nov. 5, and same goes for tours at Original Wisconsin Ducks. For closing dates of Dells Army Duck Tours, just give them a call.
If you like fall on the farm, then head on over to Country Bumpkin Farm Market for a three-acre corn maze, straw caves, pumpkin-smashin’ catapult, and pumpkin picking.
Mid-Continent Railway Museum in nearby North Freedom has a Pumpkin Special train ride through the fall foliage Oct. 14-15, with a stop midway to pick pumpkins. If you favor the biggest orange fruit in the field (yes, pumpkins are actually a fruit), ask the conductor for help loading your pumpkin on the train for the return trip.
There’s also incredible hiking to be had at Devil’s Lake State Park and Mirror Lake State Park. And birdwatching of the rare variety at the International Crane Foundation. And don’t rule out one final kayak paddle on Lake Delton.
Here’s an insider find for spa travelers: Sundara Inn & Spa’s seasonal spa treatments make use of pumpkin puree, cinnamon and honey. Sounds yummy!
