Time To Pop The Question

February 05, 2015








When we say it’s time to pop the question, we don’t exactly mean “that question,” although it could be. We’re talking about asking the one you love if they’d like to go to Wisconsin Dells as their Valentine’s gift. We know, we know, it’s not Paris, but the Dells does have a certain je ne sais quoi that is really quite charming.

Still not buying this whole Wisconsin Dells/love connection thing? TripAdvisor just posted their list of “16 Romantic Destinations with Vacation Rentals” and Wisconsin Dells is on the list. While TripAdvisor duly noted that the Dells inclusion might come as a surprise to some, they rightly pointed out that the area known for family vacationers can be fun for couples too. Thank you TripAdvisor!

We’re so in love with this couples escape idea that we quickly put together this list of 10 twosome-tailored offerings.

  1. Reserve a suite or private villa at Sundara Inn & Spa, consistently voted “Top 10 Best for Romance” by the readers of SpaFinder.com. Try a Spa Together treatment while you’re there.
  2. Bask in the natural beauty of the area with a zipline tour or a snowshoe trek.
  3. Indulge in Valentine’s truffles, caramels or candy apples from Swiss Maid Fudge. Their Valentine Fudge would be a super sweet treat too – it’s made with creamy milk chocolate and embellished with mini candy hearts.
  4. Book passage on the Mid-Continent Railway Museum’s Snow Train during Valentine’s weekend. This is their 40th year offering this winter wonderland tour aboard restored railcars that date back to the early 1900s.
  5. Toast to your love with a wine tasting at Fawn Creek Winery or Wollersheim Winery.
  6. Plan a romantic dinner for two at an area supper club or steakhouse such as Del-BarHouse of EmbersKaminski’s Chop House at Chula Vista ResortField’s at the Wilderness or Double Cut Charcoal Grill/Liquor Bar.
  7. Stay a second night, this time at a waterpark resort. Rent a private cabana at their waterpark so you can play in style. If you’re a competitive type of couple, test your skills at one of the area’s indoor go-kart tracks or with some laser tag.
  8. Pick out a pretty piece of jewelry at Alpha Beta Karma.
  9. Catch a Vegas-worthy show at Rick Wilcox Magic Theater.
  10. Take any earnings you make playing your favorite casino games at Ho-Chunk Gaming, Wisconsin Dells and put them toward your next visit.

One final tip: If you are planning to pop “that question,” consider Dells Bells Wedding Chapel for the wedding venue. Thousands of couples have tied the knot there!
