In the hustle and bustle of life - you know what we're talking about here, as in two demanding careers, perhaps two kids and two dogs, always going in two separate directions because you simply have too many things to do and not enough time to do it in - the joy of spending time together as a two-some often takes a back seat to everything else. Time to reverse that trend with a date night in the Dells.
What, you've only been to Wisconsin Dells, the waterpark capital of the world, for family vacations?
Well, then, you're in for a pleasant surprise, because this community is an up-and-comer for couples who believe in the concept of scheduled date nights. Consider one of these itineraries:
Dinner and Dancing: Get dressed up for a romantic dinner for two at one of the area's classic Wisconsin supper clubs. All that incredible food will energize you for a night of dancing at hip and happening clubs like The Reef at Marley's or Showboat Saloon.
Shopping and a Show: Show her you love her with a bauble from an area jewelry store or a sweet treat from a confectionary. Show him you love him with a pair of classic Minnetonka driving moccasins or a sports print of his favorite team. Sip, then buy the wine you both love best from Wollersheim Winery and Fawn Creek Winery. Those purchases would be in addition to the tickets you already have for a show at Crystal Grand Music Theatre.
Swimming and Spa-ing: Swim outside at Sundara Inn & Spa and Chula Vista Resort - their hot spring-inspired spa pools are heated year-round - then head inside for soothing spa services.
Golf and Gaming: Why wait until spring to plan a golf date when you can reserve some practice time together thanks to indoor golf simulators at the Kahalahari Resort and the Wilderness Resort. A few rounds of indoor mini-golf with the one you love can be a sweet gesture too. Pair that afternoon of golf with a night out of slots and blackjack at Ho-Chunk Gaming.
As for where to stay, pick an option that suits your date-night style - cozy cabin in the woods, quiet B&B, luxe villa, spacious waterpark resort suite (News Flash: The Kalahari Resort has the state's first swim-up bar.)
