Things to do in Madison

Our downtown/campus area is surrounded by 2 lakes, and there’s plenty to do in the Madison area in the fall. Consistently ranked one of the best places to live in the US, it’s a beautiful destination for biking and walking. Special sights are Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin in nearby Spring Green and the Wright-designed Monona Terrace Convention Center near the Capitol. Hike in the UW-Madison Arboretum or along the lakeshore path to Picnic Point, rent a bike for a trip to the free zoo (rentals available at one of many on-street bike racks or at several bike shops near campus), visit the Saturday Farmers’ Market, shop along State Street, or savor a meal at one of our many international restaurants. The UW-Madison campus is always fun—try the local ice cream at Babcock Hall or experience the sunset from the Union Terrace.
