Winter Activities in Wisconsin Dells
Wisconsin Dells is a top vacation destination spot in the Mid-West. But it’s important to note that this accolade doesn’t just hold true for the summer months only—this water park hotspot is also ever-expanding its cold-weather activities, both indoors and out.
Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, snow tubing… no wonder wintry enthusiasts are giddy about staying in Wisconsin Dells. While the Mid-West often gets overlooked when it comes to these activities, especially when compared to places like Colorado and Utah, the Dells are slowly but surely making their mark.
There are an abundance of nature trails, fields, hilly terrain, so if snowmobiling or cross-country skiing are your thing, you’re going to have a lot of fun. Christmas Mountain is a popular destination for cross-country skiing, sledding, ice-fishing, snowshoeing, and ice skating. It’s been deemed one of the most beautiful settings in the U.S.
In addition to the wide-array of indoor water parks that the Dells are most notably known for, there are several other indoor activities that you can do during your Wisconsin vacation.
Spend the day learning about science, space and other cool things at the Tommy Bartlett Exploratory. You’ll be amazed at all the wonderful exhibits available, where you can see, touch and fully experience scientific marvels. If you’re looking for something a little more relaxing, there are numerous spa-like experiences available for a couple hours of pampering.
Other fun indoor activities worth mentioning include: Rick Wilcox’s world-class magic show, Ho-Chunk casino, Crystal Grand’s premier musical theatre, Ripley’s Believe-it-or-Not, Wizard Quest and a 4-D Theater in the Downtown Dells. Seriously, you won’t run out of fun things to do in Wisconsin Dells!
