Wisconsin Dells

3.9

Waterpark Capital of the World

Named after a nearby scenic gorge famous for its steep sandstone formations, Wisconsin Dells features more than 20 water parks, making it one of the most popular vacation areas in this region. In addition to the expected amusement park water rides, this "Waterpark Capital of the World" also offers boat tours, golf courses, go-kart tracks, and a casino. The majority of Wisconsin Dells' tourist attractions lie along two major streets, merging to create an L-shaped curve snaking its way along the Wisconsin River. If you get tired of the area's somewhat kitschy water parks, take a breather with a long walk along the natural trails of the nearby state parks. Use our United States itinerary planner to arrange the details of your trip to Wisconsin Dells and other destinations.
