Last week I was able to surprise my girls with a getaway to the Chula Vista Resort in the Wisconsin Dells. All they knew was that we were going to a hotel and there would probably be a pool. So they were understandably thrilled when they saw that there were not one but two waterparks on property- one indoor and one outdoor!
We stayed just across the street from the waterparks, in a spacious golf villa. With 2 bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bathroom, we had plenty of space to relax and be apart after a day spent together.

Our afternoon after arrival was spent in the outdoor waterpark. I loved that the ‘little kid slides’ were still kinda big.
The girls splashed for hours and were incredibly sad when we said it was time to get dinner. Lucky for them we found the perfect place- Margarita’s Mexican Cantina. Doug & I relaxed while the girls played in the wave pool. A perfect evening!
Though we had a kitchen, our stay included a dining stipend. And who can resist a breakfast buffet? It was extensive – and included 3 types of pancakes: plain, chocolate chip and M&M.
Following breakfast we caught a ride on a Duck. This amphibious vehicle tour is a ‘must’ in the Wisconsin Dells and you can get your tickets and catch a ride right from the resort!
Bucket list item done, we were back to Chula Vista and spent the rest of the day in the water. My youngest couldn’t get enough of the lazy river.
And my fearless one took on Switchback Canyon with her dad.
We spent another evening at Margarita’s Mexican Cantina… hello, drinks for us and a pool for the kids. Why wouldn’t you?
And ended our visit the next morning at the buffet where the girls proved that playing in pools leaves them carb depleted.
