The City of Four Lakes

Madison might be the capital of Wisconsin, but students rather than politicians give the city its identity.
Kick off your visit on the 9th (Fri): admire nature's wide array of creatures at Henry Vilas Zoo, then admire the natural beauty at Olbrich Botanical Gardens, and then get a sense of history and politics at Wisconsin State Capitol. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the landmark architecture of The House on the Rock, admire the landmark architecture of Taliesin Preservation: Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center , and then admire the majestic nature at Governor Dodge State Park.

For photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Madison trip itinerary site.

Chicago to Madison is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or fly. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Chicago in October since evenings lows in Madison dip to 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Elkhorn.
