There are a lot of reasons people come to the Dells that have nothing to do with waterparks. People of all ages usually can find something to make their vacation enjoyable.
Original Wisconsin Ducks, 1890 Wisconsin Dells Parkway, and Dells Army Duck Tours, 1550 Wisconsin Dells Parkway, provide river and land rides on old military vehicles. These highly popular attractions featuring six-wheeled amphibious trucks give visitors the chance to view the scenic beauty of the area while enjoying the fun of splashing into water from land. The ducks run continuously most days in the summer.
Dells Boat Tours, 107 Broadway, gives everyone a chance to see why people started visiting the Dells area to begin with. The upper Dells boat tour lets riders check out some of the natural sandstone formations up close while they walk through a canyon. Dinner cruises and a fall haunted Ghost Boat tours also are available.
