Destination of the Week: Wisconsin Dells Area, WI

Destination of the Week: Wisconsin Dells Area, WI

Summary: 
Billed as “The Waterpark Capital of the World!”, if it is not, is must be a close second.  Located on the banks of the Wisconsin River, the area is comprised of three small villages: Wisconsin Dells, Lake Delton, and Baraboo.  Each town has its own vibe, from tourist trap to small town America.  While many only think of the area as a warm summer destination, many of the resorts are open year-around due to massive indoor parks.  During the summer the place is nearly a madhouse with tourists crawling over everything.

One downside to the area is its lack of pedestrian infrastructure, especially along Wisconsin Dells Parkway.   This five-lane road can be difficult and dangerous to cross.  The area is making some changes to make the area safer.
