      It is amazing how this beautiful area with the boat tours and natural scenery has expanded into a tourist area with so much to do and see. I grew up as a child in Wisconsin and even my last visit to the Wisconsin Dells in the 1970s had nothing like this! A family could spend some serious dollars in that location.
