Plebes from all over the Upper Midwest take family vacations in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, mainly for its waterparks, both indoors and outdoors.

It was the first vacation I planned at the age of 7 in 1994. That was the summer I learned how to swim. I chose our accommodation (I actually counted the amenities and features, while trying to stay within a price range), and chose our attractions and waterpark. Unfortunately, we did not visit Riverview, but rather Familyland, perhaps for price considerations.

There were three big outdoor waterparks at the time of our first visit.

I fondly remember the wave pools and waterslides, as well as the racing on the go-cart track.

We went again in February 2001. By that time, an indoor water park had been created. I took pictures on my new digital camera, but they were lost.

What are some similar destinations? "Non-cultural" destinations that some thumb their noses down upon (but probably really would have fun in) mainly patronized by hard-working Americans and their families?
