Madison, Wisconsin’s state capital, is located on an isthmus surrounded by four lakes — Lake Mendota, Lake Monona, Lake Kegonsa and Lake Waubesa — thus its nickname, City of Four Lakes. About 80 west of Milwaukee. Madison exudes the casual, down-to-earth feel you’d expect in the capital of America’s Dairyland, according to U. S. News & World Report, which declared the city as the 12th Best Place to Live in the U.S.
Madison’s rich arts and food scenes impress even the most cosmopolitan newcomers. World-class performers and speakers regularly cycle through the region. Meanwhile, Madison appeals to foodies, with its locally produced cheese and local beer from a growing legion of microbreweries and gastropubs.
Drinks and dining are a consistent source of conversation with friendly Madisonians, as is sports, especially if the conversation revolves around the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Division I basketball team, the Wisconsin Badgers.
During the summer, Madison’s lakes draw boaters, canoers, kayakers, sailors, swimmers and stand-up paddleboarders. Even more lakes and state parks await within driving distance. Regional bike paths wind outward in all directions for those up for a trek outside the metro area.
