Top-notch weekend destination
Madison is so routinely written up as one of America's most livable communities that it's easy to forget Wisconsin's capital and second-largest city (metro population 555,000) also ranks as a top-notch weekend destination.
Visitors can cruise in kayaks, visit Frank Lloyd Wright-designed structures, bike 200 miles of trails and dine at restaurants from an international menu that ranges from Wisconsin brats to Ethiopian stews. Madison derives much of its progressive, cosmopolitan personality from the University of Wisconsin. Plus, Madison has a downright cool location, perched on an isthmus between lakes Mendota and Monona.
