At the opposite end of downtown sprawls the University of Wisconsin campus, a pleasant site for a leisurely stroll. Linking the Capitol and campus is a pedestrian mall dotted with interesting shopping and dining opportunities, as well as museums and galleries.
Nestled on a narrow isthmus between two lakes, Madison has been recognized as one of the country's top canoe towns by Paddler magazine, as well as one of the 10 best bicycling cities by Bicycling magazine.
The city is also a perfect jumping-off point for day trips to dozens of picturesque communities in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Appealing side trips might include the Mount Horeb Mustard Museum, Cave of the Mounds and Little Norway. But visitors always want to return to Madison where everyone feels welcome.
