Take a Day Trip to the Dells!

It’s happening! You realize that you have a free day on the calendar next Saturday. After contemplating what to do for a few minutes, your daughter says “Let’s go to Wisconsin Dells!”  You never thought of the Dells as a place to visit for just 1 day, because you’ve always stayed over at a waterpark resort all weekend.
