Visit Wisconsin Dells. There...
Visit Wisconsin Dells. There are several amusement parks and fancy, fun hotels. West of Wisconsin Dells the is a place called the House on the Rock, which is a fancy house with a LOT of rooms and stuff. But beware, tall people may have some discomfort because the ceilings are way shorter than regular home because the rich guy that had the house built was short. Spending time with my cousin at a ski resort in Wisconsin. Spending time with a friend and her family at her family's cabin.
Wisconsin Dells/Baraboo You won't be Bored Here!
This is a very touristy area, but really loads of fun. There is fun for the whole family here. Aprox. an hour NW of Madison. Generally a pretty quiet area most of the year, but bustling during the summer months. Wisconsin Dells have the most coolest waterparks-no joke in the middle of WI you say? Yes-Phoenix "valley of the sun" waterparks don't even compare to the ones found in the Dells. Noah's Ark (in my opinion) being the best of the Waterparks (not the only one though). this area has over 100 attractions waterparks,mini golf,amusement parks,scenic boat tours, Circus World,Shows on the Water, Scenic Boat and Duck Tours, Haunted Houses, Museums, a quaint downtown with tons of shops. Buy fudge there, get old fashion pictures taken.
Take the Boat tours through the Wisconsin River and the stunning bluffs. Of course there is plenty to do in this area during the other three seasons-horseback riding, great fall foliage, hiking at Devil's Lake,tons of camping sites,cabins,hotels. Something for everyone. While you're there check out Devil's Lake. This is a great trip all in itself. Boy I think i might have to make a WI dells page-we've been there 15+ times!
Like to party...? visit the city of festivals...!
Milwaukee is known as the city of festivals. Starting in the spring when the weather begins to warm us, a series of events keep the city hopping. Summerfest is the biggest...and noisiest. It rocks the lakefront. Through the rest of the summer, there is Festa Italiana, German Fest, Irish Fest, Mexican Fiesta, African World Festival, Indian Summer, Asian Moon, Polish Fest and Arabian Fest. Milwaukee is proud of it's ethnic heritage. The 11 days of Summerfest always begin on the last Thursday in June and end on the Sunday after the Fourth of July.
Maier Festival Park is close to downtown attractions, including the Wisconsin Lake Schooner Education Association, the Betty Brinn Children's Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center. Major hotels in the area offer special Summerfest packages, with shuttle buses taking guests directly to the grounds.
Summerfest is considered one of the best music festivals in the country. It is held every year at the 90-acre Henry W. Maier Festival Park. It features more than 11 permanent stages and a continual lineup of jazz, rock, zydeco, blues, big band and "golden oldies" music. The 24,000-seat Marcus Amphitheater draws big-name talent. Children are also welcome at Summerfest. There is a playground, and several children's stages feature magic shows and other entertainment intended specifically for young people.
Festivals, however, aren't confined to the lakefront. In July, Milwaukeeans celebrate the beginning of the French revolution at Bastille Days, a downtown block party that is considered the largest celebration of its kind in the country.
Every year, more than 90,000 people attend the Greek Festival held at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Wauwatosa. Catholic parishes hold weekend galas throughout the city, while RiverSplash draws hundreds of people to the Milwaukee River in early June.
lost in wisconsin
i have aquaintance in fish creek.where is it? what is it like? is it worth a visit? are there any hotels?
RE: lost in wisconsin
Fish Creek is in Door County. The most beautiful part of the State of Wisconsin IMHO. Certainly worth a visit and there should be plenty of hotels there. The nearest major city is Green Bay about 2 hours drive south west of Fish Creek.
RE: RE: lost in wisconsin
I have been going to Door County for the past 10 years or so and it is definitely one of my favorite places ever. It is beautiful and the people are great. Summer is a great time to go, with water sports and so many other things to do! Fall is also a good time as there are less tourists but still lots to do. The changing of the leaves is amazing and there are many apple festivals and such that can be fun. Fish Creek has some great restaurants and there are many things to do in and around it. I would only recommend going in the winter if you REALLY want to get away from it all. It's still beautiful and relaxing but many places are closed or have shorter hours. You should still be able to find a hotel and things to do (like snowshoeing if it has snowed). Let me know if you have any other questions.
