Wisconsin Dells – Built On Family Fun

September 09, 2010

Wisconsin Dells Is Another Name For Family Fun

Wisconsin Dells is a tourism town.  Always has been.  Always will be.  Frankly, we can’t think of anything we’d rather do than what we’re doing at this very moment and that’s doling out family fun.

To be honest, it’s in our blood.  A century-and-a-half ago families were converging here for an authentic Wisconsin Dells vacation.  At that time, it meant a steamboat tour of the Wisconsin River and a chance to soak up the scenery of the sandstone bluffs. Credit goes to local photographer H.H. Bennett for creating hauntingly beautiful images of the landscapes and waterscapes and hanging his photos in train stations between here and parts south to attract visitors.

Dells Attractions Offer Up Fun For The Entire Family

Today, the waterscapes still include the Wisconsin River – and the shoreline is a dandy sight to behold in the autumn - but are now matched in grandeur by manmade indoor versions, namely the world-famous Wisconsin Dells water parks.  Did you know the indoor water park was pioneered in Wisconsin Dells?

Today, there’s no arguing we’re “The Waterpark Capital of the World!®”. And we were pleased as punch to be named the #1 Family Destination in the U.S. as ranked in the 2010 TripAdvisor.com Travelers’ Choice poll.

Right about now – September through November – is a great time to travel with little ones not yet in the school grind and take in the oodles of family-friendly attractions. There are indoor water park resorts. The famous Duck rides on the river.  Indoor amusement parks. Yummy dining options to please both grown-up palettes and kids’ taste for mac and cheese.  The pace is a bit slower, which won’t necessarily slow down toddlers but will make it very manageable.  Or, if your kids fall into the fidgety middle schooler age group, start planning a getaway to coincide with Teachers’ Convention.         

Our local business owners are ready to welcome you to Wisconsin Dells, the community built on family fun!
