Wisconsin Dells Visitor & Convention Bureau

What's Your Favorite Season to Visit?

August 16, 2012

In the early days of Wisconsin Dells tourism, visitors came for steamboat tours of the Wisconsin River. That was about, oh, 150 years ago. Today, the community has morphed itself into a four-season vacation destination. We turned to the Facebook fans of Wisconsin Dells to find out if they had a favorite season to visit. Here’s a sampling of replies that started pouring in within seconds of posting the query.


• Meet people from all around the world.
• I like the outdoor waterparks best!
• We go downtown and do all the fun stuff there.
• Bartlett’s ski show!
• Love the WATER!
• I’m a roller coaster freak :-) 


• Leaves changing color and still warm enough to take the boat out on the river and just
  take in the view!!!
• The kids are back in school and the leaves are changing. It is oh-so beautiful and relaxing!!!
• Halloween events and the trees!
• So many attractions are open now. Love it!


• Can have fun at the great indoor waterparks.
• It’s a nice change to wear a swim suit in the dead of winter.
• My kids would say summer, but I love winter. We had a reunion there, hard snow falling
  outside, and we were in our swimsuits enjoying the fun and warmth.
• The Dells are absolutely beautiful in WINTER!
• Rates were FANTASTIC.


• Spring break is the best time for staying in Wisconsin Dells.
• Went on Spring Break a few years ago, less crowded.
• Pre-season when the rates are great.


• We’ve gone at all seasons and enjoy it every time no matter what the season.
• Anytime of the year! The Dells has it going on all year long!!! LOVE IT.
• There are fun things to do all year round! We are actually in the Dells right now!!
• There is so much to do in the Dells that you can visit anytime and find plenty of fun
  and family friendly things to do.
• Rain, snow, hot or cold there is always something to do!

In case you’re wondering, after one day’s worth of voting, the local Visitor Bureau staff tallied the results. Summer was #1, with fall and winter in a dead heat for the #2 spot. The staff loved the fact that “anytime” was right up there too.
