Romancing the Wisconsin River
Watersports in the Wisconsin Dells, in south-central Wisconsin.
In central Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Dells is the self-proclaimed “Waterpark Capital of the World,” with 18 indoor parks, which draw more than two million people each year. Waterparks aside, the area provides access to the scenic, 430-mile Wisconsin River—and many ways to enjoy it.
Original Wisconsin Ducks
Travel by land and water on an amphibious vehicle; take trips through the Red Bird Gorge, over a sandbar, or into the river.
Lost Canyon Tours
Sit back in a horse-drawn carriage and view a mile of magnificent cliff-walled gorges.
The Cheese Factory Restaurant
This vegetarian’s delight serves innovative organic fare, including “Rattlesnake” Tofu.
The perfect spot for authentic Mexican cuisine and drinks overlooking the Wisconsin River. The Hurricane Rosa, a fruity, red rum punch, is the house specialty.
Nightly campfires, lodges, log cabins, water activities, a babbling brook, and lore claiming that Al Capone vacationed there make this a great hideaway.
