    wisconsin-dells-tours-17Ride a DUCK

    See the Dells in amusing style. The banter of the drivers is good clean comedy, and the scenery on land and water is a sight to behold, up close and personal.

     

     

     

    wisconsin-dells-fudge-17Eat fudge

    Let Dells homemade fudge melt in your mouth. Buy a caramel apple, dipped multiple times for good measure, for midnight snacking.

     

     

     

     

    tommy-bartlett-show-wisconsin-dellsSee the Tommy Bartlett Show

    Honestly, the Tommy Bartlett Show is synonymous with Wisconsin Dells and is one of the most fun Wisconsin Dells attractions. Remember, don't try all those tricks at home. Leave it to the professionals.

     

     

     

    wisconsin-dells-attractions-17Take up mini-golfing and go-karting in the Dells

    In addition to being the "The Waterpark Capital of the World!®", the Dells is also considered the country's mini-golf and go-kart capital.

     

     

     

     

     

    Jump in the water

    Could be at one of the many Wisconsin Dells water parks, a lake, a motel or a campground. Just make certain to get wet before you leave.

    meadowbrook-resort-wisconsin-dellsScott Kalcik and Family

    When you think of classic Wisconsin Dells resorts, Meadowbrook Resort has got to be at the top of the list. This tall timber lodge has been run by the Kalcik family, originally from Chicago, for the last 35 years. In fact, Scott Kalcik recounts, "I was just six years old when my parents purchased Meadowbrook and they put me right to work." He said that instilled in him the kind of work ethic Wisconsin Dells business owners are known for. How fitting that this Wisconsin Dells resort, which has grown from the original lodge to now include rows of neatly maintained cabins and indoor and outdoor water activities, hosts more than 150 family reunions each year.

     

    del-bar-wisconsin-dells-22Jane and Jeff Wimmer

    With 25 years under their belt as owners of the Dells Del-Bar restaurant, Jane and Jeff Wimmer could write the manual on the finer points of running a classic Wisconsin supper club. Jane explains that, for a supper club experience to be authentic, it should have a leisurely feel to it, with guests starting at the bar for a before-dinner cocktail, then being escorted to their table to enjoy a multiple course meal. "Years ago, after working hard all week, people dressed up and spent the entire evening with us." Remarkably, even with today's travelers being so time-crunched, Del-Bar guests still make it a point to spend the entire evening at the Wisconsin Dells restaurant.

     

    wisconsin-dells-shopping-downtownArnie and Ben Borcher

    Ben Borcher is a fourth-generation retailer in the Dells. His great grandparents came from Germany and settled in what was then known as Kilbourn City, now known as Wisconsin Dells. Aside from running some of the Dells' most popular retail outlets downtown, Ben and father Arnie share two other distinctions: Both are former volunteer firemen and both served as mayor of Wisconsin Dells. Today, Ben handles the day-to-day operations for Bailey's Landing and the Winnebago Gift Shop, two establishments known for their selection of fashionable moccasins and turquoise jewelry, and the upscale apparel store Alpha Beta Karma. But father Arnie is always close by for a word of advice or a bit of reminiscence about the early days of tourism in downtown Dells. One other note, Ben's sister Jane Heller is also a local business person running two sweet shops – Swiss Maid Fudge and Wisconsin Dairyland Fudge.

    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.

     

    dells-river-walk-wi-dells-29Dells RiverWalk

    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.

    Family Playtime After Dark
    06/28/2010

    wisconsin-dells-mini-golf-84When families vacation in Wisconsin Dells, believe us when we say they work hard to squeeze every minute of fun out of their getaway.  And that often includes hitting activities and Wisconsin Dells attractions after dark.

    Stroll downtown Wisconsin Dells on a summer evening and you’ll find families ducking into fudge and candy shops for a late night treat, then lingering on benches to let the chocolate-y goodness melt in their mouths. Stores up and down Broadway keep their lights on so shoppers can pick up a Dells hoodie or a new swim suit to debut the next day at one of the many Wisconsin Dells water parks.  And there’s nothing like mini-golfing in the Dells under the lights at places like Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf, Timber Falls Adventure Park. Or, plan on a keepsake photo from Old Abe’s Old Time Portraits or Professor Porter’s Old Time Portraits.

     

    big-sky-drive-in-dells-84What’s a classic night of fun without a drive-in movie?  Yes, there’s still such a thing in the Dells - at the Big Sky Twin Drive-In Theater.   Haunted houses seem to be scarier after dark, which makes the Ghost Out-Post Haunted House a family favorite when the moon comes out.

     

     

     

     

     

    There’s evening entertainment for those who prefer late night over matinee, like the Tommy Bartlett Show of water skiers on Lake Delton and the Rick Wilcox Magic Theater magic show.

     

    Kalahari WI DellsThe Dells' indoor amusement parks keep their lights on late for visitors as well.  Topping the list of family favorite Wisconsin Dells attractions are businesses like the massive Kalahari Indoor Theme Park, the laser bowling mecca known as Knuckleheads Bowling & Indoor Amusement Park and the Downtown Dells Wild Fun Zone.

     

     

     

     

    So forget curfews when you’re in Wisconsin Dells.  And don’t bother with a wake-up call the next morning either.  After all, you’re on vacation.

    Prefer The Wisconsin Dells Classics

    Enduring. Endearing. Those were the two words that guided the research for this story on the classic Wisconsin Dells vacation. Many of the Wisconsin Dells hotels, attractions and restaurants included below have been building up a fan base for decades and across generations. Others are slightly more contemporary classics that still say “Wisconsin Dells” in a big way. Combined, they make for lots of choices for travelers who like to go classic.

     

    classic-dells-motels-100Classic Wisconsin Dells Hotels & Motels

    A good starting point is downtown, where classic Wisconsin Dells hotel and motels right on the main street are well maintained and still very popular. There’s Fitzgerald’s Motel, where the front sign reminds you to “Smile, you’re on vacation.” Last year, Fitzgerald’s celebrated its 60th anniversary, and owner Margaret Gewont is 100% sincere when she tells you guests are more like extended family than vacationers. A peek in the guest book proves it, with the first entry reading: “Margaret is the ultimate hostess.” The list of downtown Wisconsin Dells hotels and motels is long and varied, so take your pick.

     

    downtown-wi-dells-shops-100Downtown Wisconsin Dells

    As long as you’re already on the main thoroughfare, keep your car parked and put on your walking shoes for a stroll up and down Broadway. You’ll pass fudge shops like Swiss Maid Fudge and Wisconsin Dairyland Fudge and likely succumb to the sweets being made behind the picture windows. Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum, with its quirky and fun-to-read-about displays from adventures of days gone by, is one of the many amusing Wisconsin Dells attractions on Broadway. As long as you’re downtown, go ahead and have one of those old-timey pictures taken. For souvenirs, Bailey’s Landing and Winnebago Gift Shop are both known for their wide selection of Minnetonka moccasins, a fashion statement in Wisconsin and on the runways of New York.

     

    wisconsin-river-tours-100Classic Wisconsin River Tours

    On your walk through the Dells, you’re sure to see a Duck or two. Not the feathered kind, but the WWII amphibious vehicle kind that takes visitors on tours of Lake Delton and the Wisconsin River. Hop on and enjoy the splashdowns and scenery. Another classic river tour choice is a tour boat, either double decker or paddlewheeler. Some even offer shore landings, which is really the best way to experience the grandeur of the sandstone bluffs in the area.

     

    dells-animal-attractions-100Animal-Related Dells Attractions

    Now on to real animals, as in the deer at Wisconsin Deer Park, one of the classic Wisconsin Dells attractions that’s been in business for more than 50 years. Here you can feed the deer and also interact with American elk and bison. Wisconsin Deer Park also acts as a zoological supply service, with deer from their park being placed in zoos all over the country.

     

    tommy-bartlett-show-100Tommy Bartlett Classic Attractions

    Two Wisconsin Dells attractions that begin with the founder’s name, Tommy Bartlett, are staples on the classic vacation itinerary. There’s the famous Tommy Bartlett Show staged on Lake Delton, the longest running water ski show of its kind in the country. It's replete with complicated ski tricks, fast boats, comedy and acrobatic acts thrown in for good measure. Plus, the Tommy Bartlett Exploratory - Interactive Science Center is also known for its hundreds of hands-on science experiments, a real Russian MIR space station and an exact replica of NASA’s Mercury space capsule.

     

    noahs-ark-water-park-100Noah's Ark Waterpark - A Classic Wisconsin Dells Water Park

    If you want to experience a classic Dells water park, then Noah’s Ark Waterpark is it. It opened in 1979 and is the largest outdoor water park in the country, adding something new nearly every year.

     

    classic-dells-100

    More Wisconsin Dells Classics

    There are a number of other classic finds worthy of their own mention. In lodging, Dell Creek Motel, with its pretty courtyard gardens, has some of the best curb appeal in the community. On Lake Delton, there’s Baker’s Sunset Bay Resort, a fun place for family reunions. For shopping, Aunt Jenny’s Got-It-All Store is a third-generation Dells’ family business which prides itself on its fun selection of apparel, souvenirs, moccasins, jewelry and toys. For breakfast, try Mr. Pancake with 30 varieties of pancakes and waffles; Paul Bunyan’s Northwoods Cook Shanty with scrumptious donuts; or Howie’s Restaurant, home of Howie’s self-proclaimed “Huge Breakfast” and, if you’re really hungry, his “Super Breakfast.”

     

    wisconsin-supper-clubs-100Classic Wisconsin Supper Clubs

    The classic Wisconsin supper clubs in the area deserve a paragraph of their own. If you’re wondering what the requirements are for supper club designation, here goes: clubby bar in which to enjoy that Wisconsin cocktail favorite, the brandy old fashioned, before you sit down to your meal; well trained staff who see to your every need and never rush you; crisp table linens; interesting architecture; relish trays and fresh baked rolls, standout wine cellar; and steaks, seafood and chops that are remarkable. If that sounds mouthwatering to you, then consider one special dinner out at the Del-Bar, Field’s at the Wilderness, House of Embers, Ishnala Supper Club, or the newest entry in the genre of classic supper clubs, Kaminski Bros. Chop House at Chula Vista Resort.

     

    big-sky-twin-drive-in-wisconsin-dells

    Drive-In Movies In The Dells

    For one last flash from the past in the Dells, the drive-in movie.  Big Sky Twin Drive-In Theater shows double features of first-run movies on two screens every night during the summer. Its concession stand is kitschy and comfortably cramped, serving everything you’d want from a classic snack bar. Side note, if you stay at Holiday Shores Camp-Resort or the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort, ask about their seasonal outdoor movies too, shown right on the grounds.

    That’s it, the classic Wisconsin Dells getaway, filled with sweet memories to last until the next time you visit.
