Have you thought about a weekend of Valentine’s romance in Wisconsin Dells? We highly recommend it, and you’ve got options to choose from. Take a peek at the list below for some ideas on how to do Valentine’s Day right in Wisconsin Dells.
A Tropical Getaway
Take advantage of what “The Waterpark Capital of the World!®” serves up best in the winter, an affordable, weather-proofed, tropical-style escape within driving distance. Book a night or two at one of the waterpark resorts, pack your bathing suit, and kick back in the lazy river, get close at a swim-up bar or take a ride down some waterslides.
Romantic Dinner Spots
Wisconsin Dells excels in offering romantic spots to dine, so there are some perfect spots for Valentine’s Day. Classic supper clubs like Del-Bar and House of Embers are synonymous with romance. Steak houses like Field’s at the Wilderness, Kaminski’s Chop House and Double Cut Charcoal Grill/Liquor Bar top the list too. For a slightly more casual feel, head to High Rock Café downtown. If you’re thinking Italian, Sarento’s Restaurant and R Place Italian Restaurant are delicious.
Dinner in a Wizard Realm
If you’ve ever accepted the challenge of Wizard Quest in downtown Wisconsin Dells, you know that this unique space features a fantasy land of wizards, ferries and unexpected mazes and mysteries. This year, Wizard Quest is offering a Valentine’s Day dinner at a secluded table for two, nestled somewhere in the realms of the fantasyland.

With a fresh blanket of snow this week, and potentially more arriving next week, it’s a perfect time for outdoor activities if you love to play in the snow. To see the scenery of the area, try zip lining at one of the three outfitters in the area: BigFoot Zipline Tours, Chimney Rock Park Zip Line Tours – Vertical Illusions or Wilderness Canyon Zip Line Canopy Tour. Vertical Illusions even offers ice climbing. Cascade Mountain Ski, Snowboard & Snow Tube and Christmas Mountain Village™ Ski, Snowboard & Tube are great destinations for a little outdoor time on Valentine’s Day. And the groomed trails at Mirror Lake State Park make a nice spot for some cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or winter hiking.
