Destination: Wisconsin Dells

Water parks, mini-golf and other family-favorite activities abound in this 15-mile stretch along the Wisconsin River. Named after the French word for flat rock, it was the dramatic sandstone cliffs that first lured visitors to the Dells, now it's the abundant family fun that makes this destination so popular.
