The Best Things to Do in Wisconsin Dells

While now the Dells are typically thought of as a hot new vacation spot, there is a rich history that made the community what it is today. It’s properly named, “Wisconsin” being the Native American word for dark rushing waters and “Dells” being French for layers of flat rock. Even in 1856, as the city was just beginning, it was already thought that the unique yet romantic scenery of the area would keep it a getaway spot for years to come. The Dells are full of outdoor adventures just waiting to be had. Connecting with nature and the great outdoors is one of the best ways to create memories with the entire family. Get out there, explore, and experience what made the Dells popular to begin with!
