The Wisconsin Dells is an outdoor lovers’ paradise, so it’s not a surprise that most of the best things to do in Baraboo, WI, revolve around taking in the stunning scenery, hiking at Devil’s Lake State Park, canoeing on the glassy surface of Mirror Lake, and birdwatching at Palfrey’s Glen. Though that doesn’t mean there isn’t an incredible selection of things to do in Baraboo, WI, that happen indoors, often with a delicious spread of beautifully prepared food and crafted drinks.
Why this area has such a big draw for nature enthusiasts has a lot to do with its geology. The Nature Conservancy designated the Baraboo Hills as one of the “Last Great Places” due to the collection of rare rocks, minerals, flora, and fauna. These features were formed millions of years ago in the last ice age when strong currents from the melting glaciers carved and sculpted the gorges, peaks, unique rock formations, and winding rivers. Exploring these interesting geological areas is by far one of the best things to do in Baraboo, WI!
