    2014-04-17The dinner and cruise was the most relaxing event
    2012-08-23As a couple of almost empty nesters we decided to take the sunset dinner cruise. We are so glad we did. We met another couple that were a lot of fun, had delicious food, great entertainment, and gorgeous views of the sunset in the dells. This is a cruise worth taking.

    Dandy Reasons for a Downtown Dells Stroll

    glockenspiel-downtown-dells-29German Glockenspiel - Downtown Dells

    Take the children to see the giant Glockenspiel with a musical re-enactment of the legendary Pied Piper of Hamelin every half-hour, on the hour. The legend goes that the Pied Piper rid the town of Hamelin of its rats and mice by charming them away with his flute playing. When the citizens of Hamelin refused to pay the piper the price they had agreed upon, he charmed away their children in revenge.

    The German Glockenspiel with its fairy tale re-enactment is FREE making it one of the best Wisconsin Dells deals. It's located in the 400 block of Broadway, Downtown Wisconsin Dells.


    dells-river-walk-wi-dells-29Dells RiverWalk

    Stroll the Dells RiverWalk with vistas of the Wisconsin River and its sandstone bluffs now easily accessible to the public for the first time in 75 years. This ¼-mile paved path offers Dells visitors not only a breathtaking view of the Dells' unique scenery, but sprinkles in game tables and comfortable benches along its expanse in invitation to sit a spell and take in all of Mother Nature's glory. Walk, bike or run the Dells RiverWalk, but be sure to put this special experience on your Wisconsin Dells itinerary. It's one of the most scenic Wisconsin Dells activities available and it never disappoints.

    The Dells RiverWalk entrance is located at the 100 block of Broadway in downtown Wisconsin Dells. It's free and open to the public year-round.

    Taking A Boat Tour Of The Wisconsin River? Then Preview The Highlights

    Glacial meltwaters ripped through this area some 14,000 years ago leaving behind fascinating sandstone formations that shadow both sides of the Wisconsin River. Native Americans canoeing the river were the first to lay eyes on these natural wonders. Later, they guided French explorers through the water passageways. The French were charmed by the sandstone towers that looked like a stack of pancakes and, in fact, the word "Dells" mimics the French word "dalles," meaning "layers of flat rock."

    There's a nice variety of Upper Dells boat tours in Wisconsin Dells, so if you're planning on taking in the natural scenery -- and you should -- here are some highlights to watch for:

    PT BoatP.T. 109 Boat Patrol

    Teetering rock formations, dark grottos, fragrant evergreens and fresh air mark this tour. No walking, just sight-seeing extraordinaire. See if you can memorize the names that have been given to the bluff formations over the years in the Dells, like Romance Cliff, Chimney Rock, Black Hawk's Profile and Demon's Anvil.

    The on-water portion is scenic, of course, but the best part of this tour may just be the shore landings. At Stand Rock, see a trained dog leap from one sandstone bluff to another, recreating the famous 1888 photo taken by landscape photographer H.H. Bennett of his son doing the same. The second stop is at Witches Gulch, a glen with mysterious passageways that also provides a natural cool-down from your perch atop the double-decker boat.

    The Wisconsin River at dusk is a thing of beauty. Listen to a narrative on the waterway, enjoy fine dining in Wisconsin Dells with a surf-and-turf meal, be serenaded with live music, and enjoy the pièce de résistance -- a stroll on torch-lit paths at the Witches Gulch shore landing.




    Princess Kay Paddle Boat WI RiverPrincess Kay Paddlewheel Riverboat

    The mode of transportation might be the biggest highlight of all here, because it's the only boat of its kind in the Dells -- an authentic paddle-wheel riverboat that seats 150 for a Wisconsin Dells dining experience.





    Here's one last tip - regardless of the tour, be sure to watch for the swallows' nest built into the bluffs and the hemlock trees draping from the cliffs. These both came to be thanks to the porous makeup of the sandstone, making them an original Wisconsin Dells attraction.

    What Kind of Meal Are You in the Mood For?

    The Tour de Force for Foodies Starts with Wisconsin Dells Supper Clubs

    If you can’t wait to relax over a brandy old-fashioned, munch on some Wisconsin artisan cheese before being seated, and then linger over a multi-course meal that might include yeasty rolls, crisp salad, rich soup, steak or seafood with an incredible sauce, a side of buttery baked potato or fresh asparagus, and decadent chocolate torte with aromatic coffee for dessert, then have we got the supper clubs for you.

    Field’s at the Wilderness and the Del-Bar were both designed by a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright, which of course adds to the ambience of these restaurants in Wisconsin Dells.  Copper Oak Steak House, House of Embers, Kaminski Bros. Chop House and Ishnala Supper Club round out the list.  For one night, don’t lament the calories.  Just enjoy!

    Seasonally Sensational, Vegetarian, Homemade Dining

    For a seasonal menu that is beyond words, check out High Rock Café in Downtown Dells.  It recently doubled in size, which is a sure testament to its popularity with visitors and newspaper restaurant critics alike.

    For vegetarian, a pleasant surprise is the Cheese Factory Restaurant.  The entrées reflect flavors of the world.  It's a great way to be introduced to this style of cuisine.  Here’s a recommendation: Try their grilled cheese, named a Top 5 in the U.S. by Rachel Ray.

    While dining in Wisconsin Dells, enjoy the beautiful landscaping outside Sarento’s Restaurant a treat for the eyes, while the extensive Italian menu and specialty pizzas offered are a treat for the tummy.

    The surf and turf meal on the Dells Boat Tours Sunset Dinner Cruise is prepared fresh at one of the docking spots.  Their grill masters are to be commended.

    Sweet tooths should unite at CheeseCake Heaven Deli Restaurant.  The owner literally spent four years perfecting her cheesecake recipe, which now comes in 90 varieties.  Everything on the restaurant menu is homemade too – pastas, soups, sandwiches, the whole nine yards.

    Enjoy your food tour of Wisconsin Dells.
