Guest Program

Come prepared! The Wisconsin Dells late-April average temperatures are a high of low 60s and low of 30s at night, so bring a jacket plus rain gear. Chances are it won't downpour, but light or moderate rain could occur. The tours will include some walking, so wear comfortable shoes.



What is Wisconsin cuisine? They have a long rich history of food and beer influenced by northern European immigrants.

Of course, dairy! Wisconsin has a Master Cheesemaker program—the only one of its kind outside of Europe. While you’re here, try cheese curds and drink milk with your lunch. You’ll also want brats and sausages, pasties, and booyah. And top it off with kringles or a cherry dessert!
