WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- There's a decade of summer fun brewing at Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells, Wis. Gearing up to celebrate its 10th Fourth of July holiday weekend since opening in May 2000, Kalahari is providing the ultimate in vacation adventures for kids and families who are taking drive-to getaways this summer.
"There's no question that Kalahari Resort has been a major asset to Wisconsin Tourism since opening 10 years ago," says Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle. "We commend the resort for drawing hundreds of thousands of tourists to Wisconsin, providing more than 1,200 jobs for Wisconsin residents, and for stimulating our economy now more than ever."
