Here are 10 reasons to drive past other destinations and deposit yourself in Wisconsin Dells for your vacation. You might be able to experience all 10 in one trip, but we recommend you visit us a few times year.

•The world’s largest and country’s only looping waterslide, Scorpion’s Tail at Noah’s Ark Waterpark.

Phoenix Vacation IdeasPhoenix, AZ - Desert character. It can’t be conjured, landscaped or kindled with twinkling bulbs. John Ford knew that. So did Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis L’Amour. Spend a few days in Greater Phoenix and you’ll understand, too. America’s sixth-largest city still has cowboys and red-rock buttes and the kind of cactus most people see only in cartoons. It is the heart of the Sonoran Desert and the gateway to the Grand Canyon, and its history is a testament to the spirit of Puebloans, ranchers, miners and visionaries.

What To Expect: Favorite things to do in Phoenix include relaxation and recreation. Popular places to stay in Phoenix are resorts, hotels and motels. Costs are relatively above average. Enjoy gourmet / fine dining and ethnic restaurants.
