A Wisconsin getaway offers a wide variety of locations to stay, from cozy Northwoods cabins to luxurious all-inclusive resorts. All you have to decide is whether you want to sleep under the sky at a campground in the wilderness, or sunbathe poolside at a family vacation hotel, relax on the deck of a secluded forest cabin, or test lady lucky at a Wisconsin casino resort.

Wisconsin Hotels and Motels - There are a number of chain and private hotels and motels available in Wisconsin. For those who like to stay with the familiar and have access to such amenities as room service, bars, and restaurants on site, as well as daytime activities and nighttime entertainment within close proximity, Wisconsin's hotels and motels are the obvious choice. Since most hotels also offer gym facilities and pools, guests can even keep up with daily workouts during vacation.

Wisconsin Bed and Breakfasts - B and B's offer a "home away from home" feel and combine the service of a hotel with the coziness of a cabin. Staying with locals also affords vacationers firsthand information on the best things to see and do, and the opportunity to ask questions about local culture, history, and events in a relaxed family-type atmosphere.

Wisconsin Resorts - Resorts often offer all-inclusive packages that include rooms, recreation, entertainment, restaurants and more all within one specific location. Wisconsin water park resorts will have particular appeal for families, while Wisconsin golf resorts, spa resorts, and casino resorts may top the most sought after list for couples and singles. Regardless, there is a Wisconsin resort to fit most every vacationer's wants and needs.

Wisconsin Cabins - Cabins are generally located in more isolated areas, surrounded by the beauty of nature and offering the luxury of solitude and fresh air. Cabins vary in amenities offered, but are often large enough to accommodate large families for one price. Most cabins also have some type of kitchen available, making it easy for those on a budget or those who love to cook to prepare their own meals. Wisconsin cabins can be found all over the state, so whatever area of Wisconsin you're heading to, there's a cabin waiting for you.

Campgrounds - For those who enjoy roughing it in the great outdoors, the smell of campfire cookouts, and the fresh scent of early morning dew, nothing beats a stay at a Wisconsin campground. Many campgrounds are nestled within breathtaking landscapes and offer activities such as hiking, horseback riding, swimming and more. Pitch your tent and spend the night with nature and wildlife. If you can't handle rainy days on a campground you may want to have a plan B to fall back on or opt to travel in an RV instead. Be sure to check ahead before choosing a campground if you require such things as electricity and showers since not all locations offer such amenities.

Wherever you choose to spend your Wisconsin getaway, cut down on travel time by staying close to the things you want to see and do. Be sure the location offers all of the amenities that are important to your optimal vacation enjoyment. And finally, check ratings and feedback from those who have been there before to verify the quality of the place you'll be spending your Wisconsin getaway vacation dollars.
