WOW – check out the great TripAdvisor lists of top travel destinations! Wisconsin Dells was named the third best family destination in the WORLD, behind EuroDisney in France and Tokyo Disney in Japan. What an honor!

From the TripAdvisor article:

Shaped by the currents and curves of the Wisconsin River, Wisconsin Dells has been a favorite family vacation destination for more than 150 years. An explosion of indoor water parks has turned the Dells from a summer hot spot to a year-round destination. Kids will enjoy the seemingly endless supply of fun and games, from go-karts to miniature golf, sideshows to thrill rides. If the weather’s right, you can take a Duck tour of land and water, and top it all off with a heaping helping of the local fudge.

Wisconsin Dells really does have everything, from elegant B&Bs and family-owned motels to familiar chain hotels and mega-waterpark properties. Already thinking of checking out the Dells this summer? There are plenty of tools at wisconsinlodging.org to help you plan your trip. Search by type of property (hotel, motel, B&B, etc.), search for places to bring your pet or facilities with waterparks, even book your room, all at the same Web site. Take your pick from nearly 150 Wisconsin Dells/Lake Delton area properties!

We regularly blog about great places to stay in Wisconsin, but don’t just take our word for it! See what others around the web are saying about our members…

Midwest Living lists their pick of 17 Fabulous One-Stop Weekend Escapes here. Four of the 17 are here in Wisconsin – the most from any of the ten states on the list!

Canoe Bay
, Chetek:
Hmmmmmm……. Adults only? Secluded in Wisconsin’s North Woods? “Fresh flowers, baked goods and steaming coffee discreetly delivered each morning“? Canoe Bay/ Relais & Chateaux definitely earns the title of Fabulous!

Delafield Hotel, Delafield:
Located in charming Delafield, less than a half hour west of Milwaukee and only 50 minutes east of Madison, The Delafield Hotel‘s “luxury lodging provides a great base for a weekend getaway”.

Old Rittenhouse Inn, Bayfield:
When your travels take you to Wisconsin’s far north, be sure to check out the “luxurious rooms and suites with up-to-date amenities (minus TVs)” at the Old Rittenhouse Inn.

Sundara Inn & Spa, Wisconsin Dells:
The Midwest Living feature starts with these words: “The real world can’t get past the front gate of Sundara Inn and Spa.” Almost sounds like a challenge until you arrive on the Sundara property and discover the peace in their pine forest…

Also making headlines as a “Mountain Hideaway Right in the Midwest”, is the Percheron Paradise Romantic Hideaway near La Crosse. Describing their chalet  as “immaculately clean and beautifully decorated with a nearly complete wrap around deck and extras such as sparkling apple juice, wine glasses and a candle that were ours to keep“, the author also shares ideas on things to do in the area – if you can be tempted to leave the 200+ acres of quiet seclusion!  Click on over and read the full article here.
