There’s something captivating about living in a capital city with a university. Madison is all that... while managing to maintain its small town charm.
And after you’ve unpacked your U-Haul and completed your first tour of the city, you’ll be forgiven if you thought the city center looked vaguely familiar... the State Capitol building is modeled after the Capitol in D.C.
Since you’re the open-air type, you’ll probably look for a place overlooking Lake Monona – enjoying the architecture of native-son Frank Lloyd Wright, or visiting one of many contemporary museums. And if water-sports are your thing, Madison has been recognized as a top canoe destination as well as one of the 10 best bicycling cities in the country.
