Madison

— 4 nights

The City of Four Lakes

Madison might be the capital of Wisconsin, but students rather than politicians give the city its identity.
Change things up with these side-trips from Madison: Devil's Lake State Park (in Baraboo), Portage WWII History Museum (in Portage) and Galena (Ghost & Vampire Tours & Blaum Bros. Distilling Co.). The adventure continues: get a sense of history and politics at Wisconsin State Capitol, get to know the resident critters at Henry Vilas Zoo, get curious at University of Wisconsin Geology Museum, and make a trip to Capitol Square.

For photos, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, read Madison trip itinerary maker site.

City of Roses

A big city with a small-town feel, Portland is home to the country's biggest rose test garden, perched on a hill overlooking downtown.

And it doesn't end there: look for gifts at Powell's City of Books, trek along Forest Park, take in nature's colorful creations at Portland Japanese Garden, and don't miss a visit to Pittock Mansion.
