Amazing US Lakes for Summer Vacation
The nickname Water Park Capital of the World is a pretty good clue to the kidappeal of this hilly vacation area near Lake Delton (50 miles northwest of Madison). Waterpark resorts (such as Mount Olympus Water & Theme Park left) plus oldfashioned amusement parks top most itineraries.
But The Dells also has three state parks and plenty of spots for grownup relaxation. Try to find time to see the Dells the unique craggy bluffs rising over the Wisconsin River like stacks of sandstone pancakes. Some of the best views are from doubledecker excursion boats. For a Dellsstyle adventure bounce your way through the woods and splash into the river on the Wisconsin Ducks amphibious transport vehicles from World War II.
