Wisconsin Dells Travel Guide
Downtown Wisconsin Dells
Downtown Wisconsin Dells
Great summer destination for families with kids
Can get rather crowded at the weekends, no decent public transportation (even taxicabs can be limited and expensive), all the walking can get you tired out easily
In a nutshell
Don't take anything too seriously, just have fun!
We didn't have time to do one of the boat cruises but I saw the Dells RiverWalk and thought it might give us at least a little view of the Dells. A little view is what you get, the path is only 1/4 mile long and while it is marked as a bike path, the surface is rough and not...
Hair Raising Water Ski Show
The Tommy Bartlett Ski Show is a live acrobatic water show that can be enjoyed by the entire family. On a great day out you can sit back and be amazed by the talent and entertainment provided by the Tommy Bartlett performers. Each show is full of extreme water stunts that...
Wisconsin Dells-Tanger Outlet and Kalahari resorts
Weather was reasonable and we had a good time in Kalahari resorts. Tanger Outlet nearby is good choice for shopping, only drawback is the open corridor and only shops inside are heated. In Kalahari resort good things are indoor theme park and indoor water park that is...
Imagine racing over tree tops and across a body of water. If you ever dreamed of flying this is for you! You wear a harness much like one rock climbers use which attachsd to a pulley. Once up top of the tower (there are 6) you wait your turn, get attached, get an ok, and off...
Lost Canyon Tours
The lost canyon tour is done with horse and wagon and in the shade, making it an attractive pick when the weather is hot. The tour takes about an hour and encompasses a ride up a hidden canyon that was once Winnebago headquarters during the Black Hawk War (the only real war...
Dells Boat Tour
There are several boat tours you can take in the Dells, we've taken many over the years and the Upper Dells tour is great for an overview of Wisconsin Dells area, for the lush trees, and the hiking opportunities that others do not offer.
Storybook Gardens & Park
Storybook garden has been around since the 1950's and I took our daughter here so that I could relive my own childhood. The park is neat I remember the school house and the pink and purple house on storybook lane. They added animals to the park and my daughter enjoyed...
If you're looking for a totally different experience, Wizard Quest is like being inside of a video game. A great indoor activity for the whole family. Your goal is to work together to find clues and release the 4 wizards in 4 different "realms" within 90 minutes. This is a...
Monk's: Burgers and sandwiches along Broadway
I had printed out a few option for dinner, pizza wasn't holding my interest and my husband didn't want to eat at the more upscale place I picked out so I was left with Monk's pub. When we walked in there seemed like there was a lot of room but by the time we left it was...
Buffalo Phil's: Trains don't overcome the terrible service or food
Long story short: your time, money, and appetite will be better served elsewhere. We had great food at Uno's, and at Moosejaw - go to those places numerous times for good food and service, and a friendly kids atmosphere. Stay away from Buffalo Phil's, even though it's...
Paul Bunyan Restaurant: Great breakfast!
We were seated at a family sized table. Started off with hot and yummy sugar doughnuts, sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, pancakes. Service was great! Loved the food. Will make it a must stop every time we go.
We only have eaten breakfast, and our family loved...
Port Vista: Local color and great flavor
This is long-established typical Wisconsin restaurant/bar. Items on the menu range from onion rings and cheese curds to walleye and burgers along with the "World Famous 32 oz Steak". Summer or winter this is a place that you will find the locals as well as tourists from all...
Ho-Chunk Casino & Bingo: Gambling
Ah... what to say about the casinos in Wisconsin... well, Ho-Chunk is a chain of gambling centers throughout Wisconsin run by the people of the Ho-Chunk Nation. I think they have around 5 other casinos as well as this location.Ho-Chunk Casino is actually pretty fun. They...

Just so you know, cabs there can be pretty costly.All three cab companies there (viz., Wisconsin Dells Taxi, Dells Cab and Sureway Taxi Service) have established as their fare $2/person on boarding the cab and $2/mile (calculated per the odometer absent decent meters); a...

You're sucked in by advertising stating "it's classified." I have to admit we were curious based on the name and the picture of the upsidedown whitehouse. As I remember, the admission was pretty high, but we couldn't resist based on the name.Once inside we discovered this...
Tourist Traps can be fun!
I grew up 8 miles from the Dells and we always considered it to be a tourist trap. However, there is a lot of great stuff to do! The best advice is to come before mid-June or after Labor Day. Weekends are nuts, you can't drive and the lines are loooong. Baraboo is a quick 10...
