Wilderness Resort in the Wisconsin Dells. If you’ve never been to the Dell’s, this community is the textbook definition of a summer vacation locale. Salt water taffy, fudge, tourist attractions, waterparks, souvenir shopping and people. Lots of people.
Once we drove onto the Wilderness property, we were surprised to find that we had no reason to leave! Obviously, the waterparks will kept us busy during the day, but we were stunned to find out how much they have to offer when we were ready to be out of the water for a while. Here's just a few of the things we did:
Indoor Ropes Course
Indoor 3-D Mini Golf
Outdoor Walking Trails
Save a ton of money by purchasing either a Wild Fun or Extreme Fun Pass for each member of your group. These passes give you admission to all sorts of activities and are cheaper than paying for each attraction individually. More info on the Wild Fun and Extreme Fun Passes can be found here.
With multiple restaurants, convenience shops and even an ice cream shop - we truly had no reason to leave! And do you want to know what absolutely melted my heart? Just outside of our hotel room door and down the hall about 30 paces was a coffee shop serving Starbucks coffee! Padding down to the coffee shop in my pajamas and flip flops is definitely a great way to start the day, with an iced caramel latte in hand.
This next photo is of some of the private cabanas that you can rent - you'll find these all over the resort as well, so you can pick one at your favorite pool. This would have been an awesome experience - especially if you were traveling with a small baby that needed to be out of the sun or to have shade available if it was super sunny! #maybenextyear!
This was a vacation that the kids and Brent and I won’t soon forget. Next summer can’t come fast enough, as we are already getting excited to plan our next vacation to the Wilderness! But this time, we're staying for at least 3 nights (probably more) so we can enjoy EVERYTHING the Wilderness has to offer! You have to check out their website to see some amazing photos of the rest of their waterparks!
