Top things to do during your visit to Madison

The signature sunburst chairs adorn the Memorial Union Terrace, boaters have taken to the area lakes, the smell of Stella's famous fresh cheese bread fills the air every Saturday at the farmer's market, and the flow of traffic is steady on the bike paths. 

This can only mean one thing. It’s summertime in Madison, Wisconsin.

It’s a special time of the year here in Wisconsin’s capital city, and it’s one of the best seasons to visit. There’s so much to see and do. Whether you’re a foodie, fitness junkie, beer aficionado, or horticulturist, there’s bound to be something that strikes your fancy.
