One of Madison's most popular attractions, this oasis of green includes a sunken garden, perennial garden, rose garden, rock garden, herb garden, wildflower garden and a tropical conservatory.
We love it and got married there in 1976. Beautiful gardens with labeled plants, wonderful walkways and a shuttle tour. Really enjoyed Butterflies and Blooms, Holiday Flowers and model train show. Beautiful Thai Pavilian, etc. Well worth your time.

Following a local online event calendar, we noticed a performance at this venue. Walking into the establishment, it was like time had stopped. From the open air, parlor type seating to the glorious woodwork/painting, I felt like I was at the Ford Theater in Washington DC. The performance was ok, pricey, but realizing the establishment had to cover the national performer it balanced the fee. Downsides to this venue are the wooden seats ( chair pads are provided) and the lack of refreshments sold, ( eg. bottled water , etc) A wonderful job, however, keeping this historical venue intact.

We were here to sample the beers. There were 11 of their beers on tap. The setting is very nice. Really liked the Lazurite IPA.

Forty marked, mostly flat, miles of trail out of Badger Praire County Park, about 10-minutes south of Madison.
Although this is a fine place to go for a walk, it's really just a straight-line trail, paved, that follows along the main road in Verona, travelling quite a ways in both directions. Yes, there are parts that wander through trees, etc., but for the most part, it's just a trail. Kinda "ho-hum"??

The majestic Roman Renaissance-style State Capitol has the only granite dome in the U.S. and inside has over 40 different types of stone from around the world as well as murals and handmade furniture. The observation deck, open in the summer, offers views of the city and surrounding lakes. Capitol Square plays host to state events throughout the year including Farmers Markets and Folk Festivals.
This State Capitol is stunningly beautiful. It has beautiful grounds, marble flooring and columns, stately governor’s office, senate, assembly and Supreme Court rooms, and, best off all, protesters who have gathered every day since Scott Walker’s election in 2011. They sing protest songs at noon every single day! What’s not to love?

Nice location. Food quality and wait staff above average. Bar staff service fair to middlin and considering the prices being charged not an asset to this facility.

No visit to UW would be complete without a visit to the student union and its famous terrace. The terrace has unparalleled views of the lake and is jammed in the nice weather. There are wonderful plaques honoring famous graduates and detailing important events all around the grounds as well. It’s worth a look just for the views—-all else is a bonus.

Both my adult son, his girlfriend and I visited last week Friday as his girlfriend has never been to a farm before. (She is from San Fransisco). We spent a better of 4 hours visiting each and every animal. The cat palace was our favorite place. 'Marcia' the momma cat stole our hearts. I enjoyed picking my own apples. Their selection of different varieties was an opportunity to try those not found at the local grocery store. Their selection of pumpkins, gourds, and veggies is astounding. The staff is friendly who truly enjoy what they do!

This art museum's impressive collection includes, prints, photographs, paintings and sculptures from prehistoric times to modern day. Special exhibitions showcasing local artists take place throughout the year.
The Chazen has a beautiful art collection! While I was not very impressed with the current temporary exhibit, the rest of the museum made up for it. Definitely a must see for Wisconsin art enthusiasts, plus it's free! The only thing I wouldn't recommend is bringing children...they would probably get bored and there's a particular erotic sculpture of two goats on the 3rd floor you won't want to have to explain to them.

Considered the birthplace of ecological restoration, the UW–Madison Arboretum is a teaching and research facility that conserves and restores land, advances science, offers public outreach, and benefits from community involvement. The 1,200-acre grounds are home to protected prairies, woodlands, wetlands, savannas, springs, shoreline, a notable horticultural collection, and Wisconsin native plant gardens. It also offers 20 miles of walking trails and 4 miles of biking road as well as hundreds of learning and volunteer opportunities. The Arboretum is located between Lake Wingra and the West Beltline Highway. The main entrance is at 1207 Seminole Highway. The Visitor Center is open weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., weekends from 12:30 to 4 p.m. Arboretum admission is free.
The Arboretum is beautiful any time of the year. Keep in mind that if you are driving, the road is blocked at the visitor center, although bikes and pedestrians are allowed to continue through. Such a peaceful place within the city limits.
