Welcome to Madison, Wisconsin’s capital city nestled between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, and home to art and culture with museums, festivals, and events for all ages. After spending just a few days here, you will be able to see why Madison is considered to be one of the top ten cities to live in the United States. This vibrant city boasts arguably the best Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings Spring through late Fall, surrounding the Capitol Square with everything from local farm fresh vegetables, fruit, flowers, and pastries. You simply cannot leave without trying the Hot & Spicy Cheese Bread. Wisconsin. Cheese. Bread. Need we say more?
Next, head over to the State Street district which links the Capitol and UW Madison. State Street has an eclectic and fun collection of boutique stores, cafes, restaurants, and all of your Bucky Badger gear. UW Madison is known as one of the “Public Ivies”, as it provides a college experience similar to Ivy League colleges. And the Badgers make us “jump around,” as many of the university’s sports teams allow us to cheer them all the way to NCAA championship games. Game day is something not to be missed, whether you are in Camp Randall stadium or tail-gating in a sea of red and white striped overalls.
Madison’s charm doesn’t end with downtown, it is a city that has consistently ranked high with bicycle enthusiasts due to more than 200 miles of biking and hiking trails. The lakes offer outdoor fun all year round, from sailing the summer away to ice-fishing throughout the winter. The Madison area also provides a perfect central location for a weekend of winery and brewery tours, so make a Wisco hotel location your place to rest and relax at the end of an adventurous day around our state’s capital city.
