We're heading for the Wisconsin Dells today for a few days, and as we have already had a short trip to Gatlinburg this year, I am wondering, what is your favorite Tourist Trap - you know, places with lots of Go-Kart tracks, miniature golf, shops and an ostensible destination (like Wisconsin River in the case of the Dells or The Smokies in the case of Gatlinburg).





We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Frankenmuth, MI.

It's a German theme town, with all the awesome that implies. Great restaurants and just fun to walk around in during nice weather. There's also the usual go-kart/mini-golf stuff alongside the theme, in case ya get burnt out.

Door County, WI. Beautiful in summer, and tranquil and quiet in the winter.

AWA, the mrs. and I were thinking of going up to the Dells. Any recommendations on where to stay/eat/play?

Solvang, CA - and Danish-themed town located in the Central Coast, heavily featured in the film Sideways. There's a bust of Hans Christian Anderson in the town's park, which I find hysterical.

It's actually a fairly affordable weekend as far as hotels go - but they get you at the restaurants. Also - my Swedish friend is heavily offended by what the Solvangians pass off as a Danish sausage.

Not on your way but Boot Hill in Dodge City is perfect, hokey and should have been in National lampoon's Vacation.

The Field of Dreams Movie Site in Dyersville, Iowa. We went there last year while visiting family in NW Illinois. My aunt told me that the corn is in (which it wasn't when we went last), we'll be going again Labor Day weekend.

I MUST disappear into the corn.

I go to a Six Flags just about every year. Can't get enough of those places, especially on Halloween. The key to the adult Six Flags experience is to go back to the car for your lunch, which you have packed in a cooler along with copious amounts of beer.

Weird. My wife and I just took the baby there last week. I used to go all the time as a kid. I highly recommend the Hotel Corque. And the Chumash Casino is just four miles down the road.

Previously it has been Las Vegas.

Once they bring down the table minimums ($100 a hand at the public tables, REALLY? For blackjack!?), it will be Charlestown, WV only because it will be a shorter drive there than Atlantic City, NJ.
