    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.

    Fall in the Dells - What’s Not to Love?! 08/13/2012We say “Wisconsin Dells,” you say “kids.” Not so fast. While this resort community known as “The Waterpark Capital of the World!®” was ranked the #1 family vacation destination in the U.S. in the 2010 TripAdvisor.com Travelers’ Choice survey, the Dells is continuing to gain a grown-up following in the fall at a pace that even has the locals pleasantly surprised.Read More
    Fall in the Dells - What’s Not to Love?!

    Golf 1There’s a reason adults love fall season in the Dells - ok, there’s more than just one reason. Wisconsin Dells makes no secret of the fact that we are growing in popularity amongst adults traveling without kids. Fall seems to be a sweet spot for guys and girls getaways. Must be the gorgeous fall colors, the crisp fresh air, the bounty of the season, the slowed down pace. Or maybe it’s the indoor waterparks? Let’s explore some of the reasons that have adults and groups of friends going ga-ga for in the fall.





    1. Golf’s the Game: Round up those friends who will make your golf game look better and hit the links at one of the area’s three championship courses - Wild Rock Golf Club, Trappers Turn Golf Club and Cold Water Canyon Golf Course at Chula Vista Resort. There are also a handful of fine executive courses to choose from for a quick afternoon round. Golf villas and spacious condominiums around the Dells area allow you ample space to celebrate afterwards. Or, if you’re a non-golfer, throw down the gauntlet at a mini-golf course, like Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf or Timber Falls Adventure Park; there are plenty of options to choose from.
    2. Spa and Shop: Those three little words will light a fire under any group of girlfriends who’ve been trying forever to coordinate schedules. This itinerary also presents a nice twist for a bachelorette party. There are day spas, spas at the waterpark resorts, an overnight destination spa and even a trip to one of the lakeside Wisconsin Dells resorts with a spa. Shop the cute gift selection at Cranberry Connections on one end of town, then head downtown for boutique apparel shopping at Alpha Beta Karma and jewelry shopping at Artistic Expressions to name just a few shopping options this fall in the Dells.
    3. Munch a Bunch: For discerning palates, plan a Wisconsin Dells vacation built around food and beverage finds. There are quintessential Wisconsin supper clubs, a vegetarian restaurant with ethnic fare, tasty fish fry joints, confectionaries, two wineries, two microbrew restaurants and the list goes on and on. Stay at an area B&B and enjoy a gourmet breakfast.
    4. Hit the Outdoors: For outdoorsy types, pack comfortable shoes and warm clothes for zip lining at one of the three zip line tours in town, kayaking and canoeing the Wisconsin River, Lake Delton or Mirror Lake and hiking at one of the three nearby state parks. Staying with this theme, try Wisconsin Dells camping. The Dells has some 3,200 campsites in all, from rustic tent camping to “glamping” (glamour camping).
    5. Fall Festivals: Fall could rightly be called Festival Season in the Dells. We have harvest fests, community fests, Halloween fests, food fests, even a festival dedicated to cranes. If you need a little nudge to get in a festive state of mind, we’re just the place to make that happen. It seems Wisconsin Dells has a fall festival or event to suit any fancy. So plan your visit around our calendar of events, or add an event to your itinerary once you arrive.
    6. World Waterpark Capital: You didn’t think we’d leave out the waterparks in Wisconsin Dells, did you? Grown-ups like to take in the waterparks too, especially when a luxury poolside cabana and adventurous rides and slides are involved. Lodging options are as varied as the indoor waterparks themselves, with oversized condos a great choice to keep the group together.

    Make It A Grown-up Getaway 08/01/2011While Wisconsin Dells built its reputation on family-friendly offerings, there’s nothing to say you can’t vacation here without the kids. In fact, there’s lots to suggest you should.Read More
    Make It A Grown-up Getaway

    While Wisconsin Dells built its reputation on family-friendly offerings, there’s nothing to say you can’t vacation here without the kids. In fact, there’s lots to suggest you should.

    For golfers, there are six courses in all and three of them are critically acclaimed championship courses. Wild Rock Golf Club is built around and through a former quarry and Links, Golf Digest and Golf magazines all rated it among the top 10 new courses for 2008. Trappers Turn Golf Club and Cold Water Canyon Golf Course at Chula Vista Resort complete the trio.

    Some say golf and spa is a natural twosome. If you agree, rent one of Sundara Inn & Spa’s private villas overlooking the Wild Rock course and make time for a golfer’s massage and a dip in their heated outdoor infinity pool. At Chula Vista Resort, their golf villas also overlook the fairway and are within easy walking distance of the clubhouse. There’s a spa on-premise here too, Spa Del Sol, where the Couples Massage Flame Experience, which uses a flame-warmed essential oil, is the newest addition to their menu of services.

    Now that you’re feeling warm on the outside, feel all warm in the inside with some wine tastings. Wollersheim Winery in nearby Prairie du Sac is breathtaking, with steep vineyards overlooking the Wisconsin River and historic buildings making up the estate. French winemaker Philippe Coquard deserves a clink of the glasses for his ability to combine European tradition with Wisconsin’s fickle growing season in the production of distinctive award-winning wines. Fawn Creek Winery in Wisconsin Dells also has a fine selection of wines and a micro menu of olive trays, artisan cheese flights, breads with dipping oils and even Wisconsin microbrews that are just too tempting to pass up.

    Let’s stick with microbrews for a moment longer. Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co. serves up 10 hand-crafted beers. Take a peek at their copper-clad barrels, then ask for the brewmaster’s recommendation for a seasonal brew. They also make a mean root beer.

    Moving from microbrews to munching, when you’re without the kids you should make dinner out a special occasion. Try one of the area’s well-respected supper clubs.  The Del-Bar has been around since the 1940s and only gets better with age. With its Prairie-style architecture, expansive wine cellar and exquisitely prepared steaks, it’s a special treat. Other places with great ambiance and equally great steaks are Field’s at the Wilderness, House of Embers, Kaminski Bros. Chop House, Ishnala Supper Club and Copper Oak Steak House at Ho-Chunk Gaming, Wisconsin Dells.

    Imagine shopping without children in tow. You can linger in jewelry boutiques like Artistic Expression Gift Gallery, selecting from among the works of 150 artists. You can try on outfit after designer outfit at Alpha Beta Karma. You can pick out that piece of artwork that calls to you at places like Holiday House and Cranberry Connections. Better bring along a friend to help carry all the bags.

    Gather some energy for a night out. Ho-Chunk Gaming has slots, Black Jack and bingo. Their newest table game is Baccarat. Other nightlife in the Dells comes in other forms too, like comedy or music. For music, the dueling pianos act at Monk’s at the Wilderness is a hoot. And Marley’s – A Taste of the Caribbean turns into a hot-spot dance club at night. One venue that offers both laughs and music acts is Crystal Grand Music Theatre. If you’re in the mood for a nightcap, head to Showboat Saloon, Sand Bar or Zap’s Tap to name a few of the local’s favorites.

    Here’s one surprise recommendation for your trip without kids - play at the waterparks. When it’s just the grown-ups, you can ride all the daring slides, float the lazy river as long as you want, and rent a decked-out private poolside cabana at one of the waterpark resorts, like the new Grand Cabana at the Kalahari Waterpark Resort Convention Center where you can lounge in your own private 12-foot-long hot tub.

    SUMMER: Classic All the Way 08/16/2012If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’ve been to Wisconsin Dells at least once and an equally good chance that trip was for a summer vacation. Time to broaden your horizons. The community, known affectionately at “The Waterpark Capital of the World!®”, also wants to be known as a four-season destination and they’ve earned that.Read More
    SUMMER: Classic All the Way

    SummerIn Wisconsin Dells, the the word “classic” can mean many things to many people. 

    Some visitors are strict in their application, using it exclusively to describe businesses they remember from childhood trips. Others reference farther back then that when using the adjective, preferring a more historic use, as in historic sites in the area. Still others, and this is a big segment, think the Dells is awash in instant classics, as in the waterparks. How about we all just agree that there is no right or wrong use of the word.

    When it comes to summer vacation, Wisconsin Dells has been a classic destination dating back 150 years when the first visitors came for rowboat tours of the Wisconsin River. Many were from the Chicago area. How did they find out about the Dells way back then? Local photographer H.H. Bennett took exquisite landscape photos of the river and placed said photos in train stations between the Dells and the Windy City. Brilliant advertising ploy really. Bennett is credited with making Wisconsin Dells famous, and his studio and gallery, now a state historic site, remains intact and open to the public in downtown Dells. Tours of the river have been upgraded a bit, with tour boats, paddlewheelers, WWII amphibious vehicles known as Ducks and jet boats among the choices.

    You can stay still at a classic resort, like Baker’s Sunset Bay Resort on Lake Delton where an impressive upgrade of the beach, decks and outdoor pool and addition of new suites and a party pavilion only add to the charm. Ambers Hideaway, with its pool and gazebo out front, is a classic motel. The owners there have renovated every room in the last year and lovingly re-landscaped the grounds. Sherwood Forest Camping & RV Park has been family owned since 1967, with the second generation adding their touch to the tradition of camping with amenities like movie night, Sunday crafts for the kids (so the parents can pack up), a zero depth splash pad for the toddlers and a new gathering pavilion.

    Sherwood Forest Camping & RV Park also has air conditioned cabins, part of a new trend that takes classic camping and turns it up a notch.  It’s called “glamping” as in glamour camping.  Visitors can reserve tree houses with air, microwave, refrigerator and cable TV at Mt. Olympus Zeus Village & Camp Resort and yurts (these are a modern adaptation of the ancient shelters used by nomads) at Yogi Bear™ Camp-Resort & Water Playground.

    There are classic attractions that visitors like to experience just about every time they visit the Dells. Counted among them have to be go-karting, riding the roller coasters, feeding the deer at Wisconsin Deer Park, horseback riding, seeing the Tommy Bartlett Show, playing some mini golf, having an old-timey portrait taken downtown and ending the night with a double feature at the Big Sky Twin Drive-In Theater.

    But let’s get to the white elephant in the room - it’s the community’s world-famous waterparks. Would you be surprised to know that Noah’s Ark Waterpark has been around for 33 years? That’s got to qualify as a bona fide classic in years alone. Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Parks’ massive surf pool and towering racing slides made it an instant classic. The waterpark resorts that fill up the landscape here all have outdoor waterparks too. There’s the jaw-dropping variety at Kalahari Waterpark Resort Convention Center, Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort and Chula Vista Resort. The toddler-friendly ones at Great Wolf Lodge and Polynesian Resort Hotel & Suites, to name just a few. Plus, there are just about every size and shape of waterparks in between in Wisconsin Dells.

    Next time you’re heading to the Dells for a summer vacation, think classic. Maybe you could even get in the mood by playing some classic tunes on the radio on your drive in. Then again, agreeing on what constitutes classic music with your kids could be more of a challenge than defining classic vacation to Wisconsin Dells.
