A night out in Madison
Wisconsin's vibrant capital city, and its picturesque surrounding towns, offers visitors the best of all worlds: natural beauty, recreational opportunities, cultural offerings, distinctive
restaurants and shops, and a spirit of fun.
The fall, check out the stunning colors of Madison's changing foliage while biking, hiking, windsurfing, or walking. Winter, in its frozen splendor offers visitors opportunities such as
cross-country skiing, ice-skating, and downhill skiing.
Highlighted by Wisconsin's majestic state capital, Capital Square is an active gathering place for many. Built on a narrow isthmus between lakes Monona and Mendota, Madison basks
in spectacular natural beauty. These beautiful lakes and over 200 parks are open year round. Madison is home of the University of Wisconsin and the college boys are out and about.
