When you’re kicking up dust in the Midwest town of Wisconsin Dells, there are some popular stops that simply can’t be overlooked, especially if you’re looking to have a little fun and get a little crazy. Fire up that Thirsty Biker app and let’s add some stops. First up is The PourHouse, located in Poynette. With one of the best views of the Wisconsin River, not to mention food, fun and cold drinks, this is the spot to be to begin the day’s trip. Happy hour specials daily, tournaments and even casserole cook-offs (yep, you read that right) can be found here and if you’re ready for some good times and friendly faces, you won’t find anywhere better than The PourHouse.

If you’re ready to have a swig… well, you might as well have a swig at Nig’s…the best sports bar in Wisconsin Dells. Pool tables, awesome bartenders, live sports and even your favorite tunes playing on the jukebox greet you here, and if you’re looking for a place to stop and catch the game, Nig’s is it. After your drink at Nig’s, head over to Edge-O-Dells Bar & Resort for some live music, events and chill vibes. This campsite is a popular stop for travelers near and far who need to rest and relax on their journey, and when it comes to being in on all the Wisconsin Dells action, Edge-O-Dells is close enough to everything, yet far enough if you want to get away from it all.
