Technically any getaway through Labor Day weekend qualifies as a summer vacation, so let spontaneity be your guide as you plan one last (or first trip of the season) to Wisconsin Dells. The outdoor waterparks are open through Labor Day, so make sure there’s splish/splash time built in to your itinerary. This is your chance to check off a few more waterslides from your must-try list.
If your family loves camping, ditch the backyard variety and pitch a tent at Holiday Shores Camp-Resort. Or forego the packing process and stay in a camp cabin at Yogi Bear™ Camp-Resort and Water Playground. Toddlers will take to Sherwood Forest Camping & RV Park like fish to water. Park your RV, then take a dip in the heated pool at KOA – Wisconsin Dells.
Tubing goes well with camping, as in tubing on the Wisconsin River. River’s Edge Resort has floating trips that last anywhere from a few hours to the whole day. The beaches and sandbars along the way are icing on the cake.
If you’ve not been to the classics in a while, or ever, that would make for a nice spontaneous visit all on its own. Take in the Tommy Bartlett Show on Lake Delton, a Duck ride on the river, a downtown stroll for fudge and moccasins, a double feature at Big Sky Twin Drive-In Theater, you get the picture. Make sure to take the family to a classic supper club for a most memorable meal.
There, a great getaway that doesn’t require tons of planning. And the bonus is that you won’t be part of that sad statistic of Americans leaving tons of vacation days on the table. See you soon!
