Two years ago, we took a spur-of-the-moment trip to Wisconsin Dells. It was something we had wanted to do that whole summer, but the opportunity to travel came three days before Jayden’s first day of school. So what did we do? We made last-minute reservations, hopped in our truck and took the four-hour road trip!
We had such a fun time exploring the town, and since we went so late in the summer, we got lots of great deals. We enjoyed our time so much that we decided to make it a tradition. This June, we were able to return to Wisconsin Dells. Since we were visiting during their peak season, we chose modest lodging in order to be able to enjoy more attractions. After all, that’s why we were there!
There are plenty of resorts in town, but since we spend so little time inside, to us it’s not worth paying for all the extra fancies. Wisconsin Dells is known for its motels, which to me add a touch of nostalgia that I love. During our recent visit, we stayed at Twi-Lite, a quaint motel owned by a family who lives on-site. By keeping our lodging simple, we were able to explore more of the town on our modest budget.
Wisconsin Dells is known as “The Waterpark Capital of the World®,” and we definitely took advantage of the endless offering of pools, slides and thrill rides. However, today I want to share the natural beauty of the Dells you’ll find nestled beyond the strip.
