If you're a first-time traveller to Wisconsin Dells, the best advice is to plan in advance. Take the time to not only book your hotel well in advance, but also to consider your budget. Maybe you can't afford both to take a full day at Noah's Ark and stay at a fancy resort like The Wilderness Resort or The Kalahari. It might be more in your interest to book a room at a less expensive hotel and spend the whole day at the water parks in Wisconsin Dells. Or maybe you want to drive as little as possible and avoid the long lines, but still have fun! Then get a room at The Wilderness or Kalahari, where you have plenty of entertainment options directly at your disposal without having to fight cross town traffic on the busy Dells Parkway.  Whatever your taste and budget, there's a wide spectrum of options available.  That's one of the things that makes the Dells so attractive as a vacation and travel destination: no matter who you are or what your budget is, there is plenty to do. The atmosphere is always welcoming, the people are nice, and it's a great family environment.

Also, don't forget, the Dells isn't just for summer anymore. As a matter of fact, it's a terrific option for winter getaways. Prices tend to be lower in the "off season" even though it's not really an off season at all. Gone are the days when the Dells would put up it's shutters come October while many of its native denizens migrated to warmer climates, shrinking the town to a mere 2500 people waiting out the long cold winter. With the rise of Wisconsin Dells super resorts with indoor water parks like The Wilderness Resort, The Kalahari and The Great Wolf, as well as the growing popularity of the Flake Out festival and the continued growth of Christmas Mountain and its ski resort, there is no shortage of fun after the snow falls. Even the indoor waterparks are running. This makes Wisconsin Dells a great option in place of a trip to Florida or The Bahamas.
