Charm the one you love with these captivating ideas to bring out the romance in your relationship all year long.
Visit a Spa
If stress relief is what you’re after, this is the place to start. Book an afternoon at one of the area day spas. Or make it an ultimate spa getaway and reserve a room at Sundara Inn & Spa for the weekend. Sundara Inn & Spa is an adults-only destination spa with a full complement of spa amenities including indoor and outdoor pools heated year-round, massages and facials, chef-prepared cuisine, fitness and wellness classes, and quiet relaxation spaces.
Win Big at the Casino
Ho-Chunk Gaming in Wisconsin Dells is a slice of Vegas, complete with blackjack, craps, slots, and bingo. You already won the jackpot with your partner, so go out and try to win a big prize together at your game of choice. Don’t leave (with your winnings) until you’ve enjoyed a libation at their recently renovated Spirit Bar.
Sip Local Wine & Brews
Wisconsin Dells is home to six distinct wineries, so you could actually turn your trip into a full-fledged winery tour. The historic Wollersheim Winery also has a distillery you’ll want to experience. For craft beer loving couples, head to Moosejaw Pizza & Dells Brewing Co., Latte Stone Brewing Co., Tumbled Rock Brewery, or the AL. Ringling Brewing Co.
Have a “Play Date”
Feel like a kid again with a grown-up play date. Have fun together in an arcade like Wild Fun Zone, Tom Foolerys or Knuckleheads – maybe even competing to see who can win the most tickets. Make sure to fit in a game of mini golf while you’re there. Try to hit the bullseye at Asgard Axe & Tap where they have two levels of throwing lanes, plus a vintage arcade on the lower level.
Dinner for Two
Slow down your fine dining experience at a supper club like Del-Bar or House of Embers. Start with an old-fashioned cocktail and finish with an indulgent dessert. Field’s at the Wilderness, Kaminski’s Chop House, and Double Cut Steakhouse are also stellar choices with great wine lists, mouthwatering entrees, charming ambiance and dim lighting.
Get Some Fresh Air
Enjoy the outdoor beauty of Wisconsin Dells all year long. Depending on the season, hike, snowshoe, or cross country your way through the four area state parks. You’ll find something new to appreciate at every turn. Stroll hand in hand down the River Walk, pausing at the various lookout points to reflect on how grateful you are for one another.
Listen to Live Music
Check our calendar of events page for ongoing live music at various venues all around town. Or combine live entertainment with craft cocktails at Redd’s Piano Bar where you’ll be entertained in a lounge-style atmosphere. Dance the night away with your significant other at The Reef nightclub or Grateful Shed where you can’t help but move to the playlist of the DJ’s.
Indulge in Something Sweet
Never pass up the chance to indulge in “sweets for your sweetie” when you purchase a treat for the ride home from local confectionery shops including Dells Fudge Company, Goody Goody Gum Drop, Original Wisconsin Dells Fudge, and Swiss Maid Fudge.
Cozy up in a Cabin
There’s a peaceful feeling that envelopes you when you stay in a cabin tucked in the woods or within view of the Wisconsin River. Take a winter stroll, watch for eagles, then retreat to your cabin lodging to warm up by the fireplace. For a full list of cozy Wisconsin Dells cabins, click here.
This one might not be an obvious selection for romance, but there is something magical about sipping a beverage in an indoor/outdoor hot tub in the middle of a snow fall – if you time it right, you can do just that at both Kalahari Resort and Wilderness Resort. Reserve a cabana for some extra privacy – you’ll find that some even come with a private hot tub.
