1-2 day trip to the Dells in Oct

This will be our first time going in october. Obviously we won't be doing any water Parks, but what are some things we can do around town on a fall day? We will only be up for a day or 2 any suggestions is appreciated. We love nature so we will be looking forward to seeing some fall colors!

The cruise boats on the Wisconsin River probably be running.

A great contrast to see the real Dells area is a ride on the Ducks (WWII surplus vehicles) that go everywhere - on water, over snow, through mud and everywhere else to let you see what can never see on a cruise boat. Dress for the weather and you may get splashed.

Mirror lake state park is beautiful! For a great breakfast go down town to The Keg/Baja Cantina on Oak st. Great outdoor seating and the best homemade breakfast.

Here's a great calendar that will give you some of the events going on in the Dells. The first Saturday in Oct. there is an art fair on the Square in Baraboo. The third weekend is harvest fest in the Dells - that's usually pretty fun - especially if the weather is good. Hiking would be good at Devil's Lake State park. The Upper Dells Boat rides are interesting - just dress warm. Same with the Ducks. If you like adventure, take a zip line through the treetops. I highly recommend Wisconsin Deer Park - the deer are very friendly - especially if you have food :) Mini golf may still be open and Mt. Olympus usually has fright fest going on until Halloween. You can also take in Fawn Lake Winery or Port Huron Brewery - check for their hours.

Have fun!
