Madison might be the capital of Wisconsin, but students rather than politicians give the city its identity.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Madison: Spring Green (The House on the Rock & Taliesin Preservation: Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center ), Fisher King Winery (in Mount Horeb) and Brewery Pottery (in Mineral Point). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Olbrich Botanical Gardens, stop by Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier, make a trip to Memorial Union Terrace, and ponder the world of politics at Wisconsin State Capitol.

For photos, maps, reviews, and tourist information, use the Madison trip planner.

Newark to Madison is an approximately 4.5- hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and bus; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Newark to Madison. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Newark in July, with highs in Madison at 81°F and lows at 61°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Wisconsin Dells.
