Waterpark Capital of the World

Named after a nearby scenic gorge famous for its steep sandstone formations, Wisconsin Dells features more than 20 water parks, making it one of the most popular vacation areas in this region.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Wisconsin Dells: Spring Green (The House on the Rock & Taliesin Preservation: Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center ), EAA Aviation Museum (in Oshkosh) and Madison (Wisconsin State Capitol & Olbrich Botanical Gardens).
