From the wonderful, water full Wisconsin Dells to the snow-packed slopes of Devil's Head to Milwaukee's authentic back-alley bowling alleys, Wisconsin offers a wonderful mix of natural and manmade wonders.
Wisconsin Dells vacations are all about family fun. The Dells are the undisputed "waterpark capital of the world," after all, with more than 20 places to get wet. Feel free to visit anytime: many of the parks are of the indoor variety, where it's always a balmy 80 degrees.
This peninsula provides more than 300 miles of breathtaking Lake Michigan shoreline to explore, including lighthouses, state and county parks, art galleries and golf courses. So it should come as no surprise that Money Magazine called Door County one of the top 10 vacation destinations in America.
Of course there are many, many more places to visit in the Badger State (the Northwoods, the Amish "coulee" region, Apostle Islands...). And you can be sure that wherever you want to go for your Wisconsin vacation, there will be an Endless Vacation Rentals resort nearby.
Dairy View Country Store (Sturgeon Bay). This country store and ice cream parlor located at Schopf's Dairy is definitely a dessert first kind of place. Start with homemade ice cream made from milk collected on-site. Plan to spend some extra time to take a tour of the dairy or explore the corn maze.
