Madison might be the capital of Wisconsin, but students rather than politicians give the city its identity.
Get outdoors at Witches Gulch and Geneva Lake Shore Path. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf and Speed Boats Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Madison: Room Escape Games (in Wisconsin Dells), International Crane Foundation (in Baraboo) and Cave of the Mounds (in Blue Mounds). It doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Geneva Lake and make a trip to Memorial Union Terrace.

The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Jenny Lake, contemplate the long history of Mormon Row Historic District, explore and take pictures at 42-mile Scenic Loop Drive, and explore the striking landscape of Teton Point Turnout.
