As Wisconsin’s capital and second largest city, Madison is situated in the heart if America’s Dairyland. Aside from the city’s farming history, Madison is also known for its lakeside recreation and relaxation on Lake Mendota, Lake Monona, and Lake Waubesa. Interstates 90 and 94 make commuting as easy as possible in the area, even to major metropolises like Milwaukee, located roughly 80 miles east of town on Lake Michigan.

Home to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison draws in many residents for its college sports and top-notch educational opportunities. Between the Badgers basketball and hockey games at the Kohl Center to the Badgers football Games at Camp Randall Coliseum, there’s always a college game to cheer for. The university features all kinds of entertainment options, including the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum, a major natural attraction in the city.

Olbrich Botanical Gardens is another natural attraction, and Henry Vilas Zoo and Madison Children’s Museum are popular locales for families in the area. Enjoy the artistic vibe in Madison through exploring the Chazen Museum of Art or catching a performance at the Overture Center for the Arts. The Dane County Farmers Market serves up the best local meat and product, and West Towne Mall and East Towne Mall offer endless shopping opportunities.
