    A Day at the Beach
    2011-08-01

    Yes, it’s true that Wisconsin Dells is about 1,000 miles from the nearest ocean.  But that hasn’t stopped the business owners around here from creating their own versions of the beach vacation.

    Let’s start with Lake Delton. While it will never be mistaken for the ocean, it is as pretty a body of water as you’d ever want for a vacation. This lake was entirely remade a few years ago after completely draining following torrential rains. That means it is more pristine than ever.  Nostalgia-inducing resorts rim the shoreline. Baker’s Sunset Bay Resort is a perfect example. Its sandy beach is great for lounging with a good summer read or a gritty game of volleyball with your competitive cousins. The sound of crackling wood and the earthy aroma of the bonfire draws guests in for conversation – the low-tech way to meet new friends. Thunderbird Resort is another fine choice along the same lines.  There’s even ample docking space if you want to bring your own boat.

    Another resort with beach frontage on Lake Delton that begs for you to feel the sand between your toes is Island Pointe Resort (operated by Lake Pointe Management) with its two sandy beaches. Here visitors have their choice of cabins, condominiums or private home rentals. The name alone of this next resort - Moonglow Vacation Homes - paints a pretty appealing picture of strolling along your own private beach.

    Moving on, there’s the Wisconsin River, which literally bisects the community. The meandering shorelines and beaches along the Upper and Lower Dells are beautifully framed by piney backdrops and sculpted sandstone bluffs. Cedar Lodge and Settlement has 400 feet of sandy beach and the accommodations here blend seamlessly with the environment thanks to their north woods feel. Next door is River’s Edge Resort, a favorite for both fishing enthusiasts and families who like to hang out at the beach. The focal point at Holiday Shores Camp-Resort is the very scenic cove of the Wisconsin River on which it’s located. The curving beach there just beckons you to spread out the beach towel for an afternoon nap in the sun.

    Then there are the man-made beaches, with one of the best examples found at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Parks. That’s right, the owners trucked in tons and tons of sand, enough to create a 16-inch deep beach adjacent to their giant surf pool called Poseidon’s Rage. There are some extra beachy touches too, like the swings instead of bar stools at the freestanding beverage area, the palm trees and the statue of a Trojan soldier that’s inspiration for any budding sand castle artist. When you’re done playing in the white stuff, jump in the surf pool where nine foot waves are unleashed every 90 seconds.

    Chula Vista Resort followed suit this year and created its own sandy beach adjacent to the outdoor waterpark area there known as Adventure Lagoon. Also available at Chula Vista is that upscale amenity you’d expect to find at the finest oceanside resorts - the private cabana with personal attendant. The Kalahari Waterpark Resort Convention Center offers cabanas in their indoor waterpark and they are quite chi-chi too, with flat screen TVs and chaise lounges.

    While Wisconsin winters include below-freezing temperatures and a few feet of the other white stuff, you’d never know it at the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort’s indoor waterpark where, when the sun is shining, guests tan year-round courtesy of the high-tech dome that covers the nation’s largest indoor wave pool. If you need to cool off, just reserve one of the air conditioned private cabanas.

    So if you thought your only outlet for a beach vacation was to head to the coast, think again. And the fact that you likely won’t have to get on a plane to enjoy Wisconsin Dells’ many sandy gems makes it all the sweeter. Sunblock all around.

    Choosing “Best Of” Food Finds is Delicious Duty 2012-08-16For the majority of travelers, even the most disciplined, the act of eating while on vacation is often equal parts indulging, searching out favorites and trying new things.Read More
    Choosing “Best Of” Food Finds is Delicious Duty
    2012-08-16

    monksWhen you have more than 100 restaurants, confectionaries and specialty food stores to choose from, as you do in Wisconsin Dells, the process can be incredibly satisfying.

    Setting out to catalogue some of the “best of” food finds in the Dells was no small task. Locals have their favorites and proved a good starting point for recommendations. Sheer traffic to eateries was another tip-off. Of course, the ultimate critique comes in the taste. Here is a sampling - it’s by no means an exhaustive list, as that would require a book - to help guide your culinary decisions the next time you’re visiting Wisconsin Dells.

     

    Best of Cheese
    It’s Wisconsin, so we had no choice but to start the list with cheese.

    • For fresh cheese curds in all their squeaky goodness, shop Market Square Cheese. For the deep-fried variety, the Sand Bar's version goes great with their homemade hot tomato relish. 
    • Best grilled cheese sandwich goes to the Cheese Factory Restaurant - it was named one of the Top 5 in the country by celebrity chef Rachel Ray.
    • Best mac and cheese for grown-ups can be found at High Rock Café - they call their rich and creamy entrée Big Kid Mac & Cheese and you can even customize the spiciness of this traditional favorite.

    Best Burger

    The undisputed winner here is the Original Monk’s Burger at the classic Monk’s Bar & Grill in downtown Dells. This is the burger that started it all, or so it says on the menu. It’s a fresh patty simmered on the seasoned grill. The grill is right at the front of the joint with the aromas piped outside - the original owner called it “aroma marketing.”

    Best Ribs

    House of Embers claims honors in this category. In 1959, Wally Obois decided his new restaurant would be famous for hickory smoked BBQ ribs. And so it came to be. Today his son Mike uses the same technique to make these deliciously tender ribs using a specially designed smoke house and a secret BBQ sauce. And they are.

    Best Friday Night Fish Fry

    • For atmosphere and food, the Friday Night fish fry at River’s Edge Pub & Grub can’t be beat - the cod is broasted and the dining room features a 4,000-gallon aquarium filled with local fish.
    • Also in contention - the classic Wisconsin fish fry offering at Italian restaurant Sarento’s Restaurant, of all places, and the fish plate at Ravina Bay Bar & Grill, which pairs well with their homemade clam chowder.

    Best Deep Dish Pizza

    • In its menu description, Uno Chicago Grill claims to have invented deep dish pizza. We don’t know about that, but there’s no arguing their pizza, with dough made fresh every day, is delicious. The Wisconsin Dells restaurant is owned by husband/wife team of Mike and Laura Nate.
    • Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co., Buffalo Phil’s Pizza & Grille, Pizza Ranch of Wisconsin Dells, Pizza Villa and Pizza Pub are shoo-ins in the broader pizza category.

    Best Steaks

    Wisconsin Dells is known for its quintessential Wisconsin supper clubs and at these supper clubs you’ll find the most delicious steaks around. In this category, you won’t go wrong making reservations at Field’s at the Wilderness, Ishnala Supper Club, Del-Bar, Kaminski Bros. Chop House, Copper Oak Steak House or House of Embers.

    Best Sweet Treats

    • For donuts, the Paul Bunyan’s Northwoods Cook Shanty variety served at breakfast and in their bakery is legendary. Holiday Shores Camp-Resort makes theirs homemade and their guests always line up at the counter before the first donuts come out of the fryer.
    • For desserts, the list is a mile long, but you should, at least once in your life, try any flavor of homemade cheesecake at the CheeseCake Heaven Deli Restaurant, the to-die-for dessert bars at River Moon Café, artisian cakes at the Cheese Factory Restaurant, or a one-of-a-kind flavor creation at Cold Stone Cremery.
    • For homemade fudge, it’s a tie between Swiss Maid Fudge and Wisconsin Dairyland Fudge, both celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2012.

    Wisconsin Cranberry Confections

    Did you know Wisconsin is the nation’s largest producer of cranberries? For that reason alone we were compelled to make this a category onto itself. And the winner is Cranberry Connections, where you can indulge in five flavors of cranberry ice cream, all made at a small dairy right in state, cranberry raspberry salt water taffy, white craisin pretzel bark and their #1 seller, craisin cashew crunch. The candy looks especially pretty when served in one of their collectible cranberry glass bowls.
