    05/14/2010When Raildog opened, it instantly became one of me and my dad's favorite places in the Dells. We went to the Dells as a family at least once a year from when I was about 6 years old until about 4 years ago when I turned 24. We found Raildog by accident, but it was just a cool attraction, and the food was pretty good too. While my mom and my future wife would be shopping downtown, me and my dad would always find a way to sneak off to Raildog to grab a bite to eat and relax. My dad passed away a few years ago, but when I go back to the Dells, one of the things that brings me the most happiness is going back to Raildog and remembering all the trips we took together.

    glockenspiel-downtown-dells-29German Glockenspiel - Downtown Dells

    Take the children to see the giant Glockenspiel with a musical re-enactment of the legendary Pied Piper of Hamelin every half-hour, on the hour. The legend goes that the Pied Piper rid the town of Hamelin of its rats and mice by charming them away with his flute playing. When the citizens of Hamelin refused to pay the piper the price they had agreed upon, he charmed away their children in revenge.

    The German Glockenspiel with its fairy tale re-enactment is FREE making it one of the best Wisconsin Dells deals. It's located in the 400 block of Broadway, Downtown Wisconsin Dells.

    Stroll the Dells RiverWalk with vistas of the Wisconsin River and its sandstone bluffs now easily accessible to the public for the first time in 75 years. This ¼-mile paved path offers Dells visitors not only a breathtaking view of the Dells' unique scenery, but sprinkles in game tables and comfortable benches along its expanse in invitation to sit a spell and take in all of Mother Nature's glory. Walk, bike or run the Dells RiverWalk, but be sure to put this special experience on your Wisconsin Dells itinerary. It's one of the most scenic Wisconsin Dells activities available and it never disappoints.

    The Dells RiverWalk entrance is located at the 100 block of Broadway in downtown Wisconsin Dells. It's free and open to the public year-round.

    Heading Downtown? Here's Your Intinerary
    04/01/2010

    There are so many ways to slice and dice a day in Downtown Wisconsin Dells, but here's one itinerary to consider that will give you a real taste of both the Dells' classic and contemporary sides.

    1. Begin the day in the Dells with a round of mini-golf at one of the downtown area's courses -- Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf or Timber Falls Adventure Park. It's cooler in the morning, allowing you to make a go at playing dozens and dozens of holes.
    2. Get gussied up in costumes and pose for an old-time photo. Saloon settings are always fun, or maybe the gangster getaway car is more your style.
    3. Set aside quality time for a visit to the H.H. Bennett Studio, one of the great historic Wisconsin Dells attractions. The location is a certified Wisconsin historical site and is the original studio of the famed 19th century landscape photographer who is credited with making the Dells famous.
    4. In keeping with the history of the Dells, walk the RiverWalk and see vistas of the Wisconsin River not accessible for 75 years. This winding paved pathway has benches and game tables nicely spaced along the route.
    5. Stop for lunch off the main avenue at Rail Dog, located at the corner of Oak and Wisconsin. This is a real train car -- a 1956 Milwaukee Road caboose, to be exact -- turned corner hot dog stand. The owners will insist you try their very own homeland creation, the Polish taco. This is just one of many kitschy dining options Downtown Dells.
    6. For dessert, head to any one of the fudge or sweet shops that line the main avenue. Load up on hand-dipped in the Dells chocolate-covered toffee, homemade fudge, gooey caramel apples and saltwater taffy.
    7. Wear off those calories with some retail therapy and check out great Wisconsin Dells deals. There are upscale stores with fashion-forward resort wear and handmade jewelry. There are souvenir shops that give kids a chance to pick up a Wisconsin Dells logo sweatshirt or a pair of moccasins without breaking the vacation budget. And, as you'd expect, there are some great swimwear retailers.
    8. Time to cool off with a tour of the river. Boarding docks are located throughout the downtown area. Hint: If you really want to cool off, try a jet boat ride. You're sure to get plenty wet on one of these!
    9. Would you be surprised to know you can stay downtown? Classic Wisconsin Dells hotels, motels, even a B&B are sprinkled here, there and everywhere.
    10. After checking into your room, head back out for some free entertainment. On most summer evenings, you'll find musicians and dancers at the corner of Broadway and Eddy Street.
