Wisconsin Dells (Part 2)

As I mentioned in my post last week, Steve and I went to Wisconsin Dells for a weekend in August and had a blast!  I shared some pictures of the waterpark last time, so I thought I'd show pictures of the other places we went on our adventure.

1.  Paul Bunyan's Cook Shanty -- this place is famous for it's all-you-can-eat "lumberjack" breakfasts, and we'd give it two thumbs up! It was delicious and the restaurant itself was really fun with it's lumberjack decorations.  They even serve your meal on a tin plate and mug, similar to what you'd use while camping!  I think the donuts were the best I've ever had, which explains why we smuggled some out for later :-)

Of course we had to take a couple goofy pictures

2. Go-karts -- this was a really fun and quick activity! The lines were short, and the go-kart track was pretty tricky.  Steve was so much better and faster than me at this, but we both had fun!

3. Pirate's Cove Miniature Golf -- The place we went for mini golf was enormous! It had multiple courses varying in difficulty and we literally had to hike to the beginning of our course, which was at the top of a hill/mini mountain.  Even though it was really hot outside, we had a blast working our way through the course.  Another fun part of Pirate's Cove is that the winner of each game gets a free ice cream cone, which was added incentive for such a hot day.

"Punishment for taking 5 putts" haha
4. The Dells -- I've already mentioned what a unique city Wisconsin Dells is, but driving around town makes you feel like you're living in a strange dream.  You can see a giant Trojan horse next to an upside down building, and moments later pass a mini Colosseum!  These pictures are some of our favorites of the area.

This is Steve's first reaction when he sees an upside down building!

Where else in the world would you see these things on the side of the main road? 

To wrap up my posts on the Dells, I'd just say that it was such a fun vacation! I would definitely recommend that people go there if they're given the chance.  We were there for 2 days, and it was just the right amount of time for visiting each waterpark at our resort as well as doing some fun things in the city.  We made lots of good memories!

  1. Wow! I didn't know that you went there! I've always wanted to see the upside down house! I can't remember what book talks about that place. Can you? That mini golf course looks amazing! Who won the icecream? I'd definitely smuggle some donuts :)
