What's New in the Wisconsin Dells for Summer 2013
In many ways, the Wisconsin Dells is the same place it was when I was a kid. But without fail, every year  you can expect someone in Wisconsin Dells to unveil a one-of-a-kind, world’s only, country’s biggest something or another! And this year is no exception. Here are some of the NEW things Wisconsin Dells visitors have to look forward to this year (in addition to all of the great stuff that's been around for years).

Planning Your Wisconsin Dells Vacation
Thinking about heading up to the Wisconsin Dells for a little family getaway sometime this summer? Not sure where to start your planning? Wondering which hotels and waterparks are the best fit for your family (because there are definitely different parks for different families)?

So if you are thinking about a trip to the Dells sometime this summer, I definitely suggest that you do your homework before hand. Figure out which hotel will work best for your family. Pack wisely (lots and lots of beach towels!). Think about some good dining options that will make everyone in the family happy. Make a list of the attractions that you are hoping to see during your stay. This may sound like a lot of work -- but no need to feel overwhelmed. The Wisconsin Dells Visitors & Convention Bureau has tons of great resources to help you get started planning your trip...
