Madison

— 2 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: Baraboo Candy Company (in Baraboo), Wisconsin Dells (Original Wisconsin Ducks & Zipline) and Spring Green (The House on the Rock & Taliesin Preservation: Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center ). And it doesn't end there: ponder the world of politics at Wisconsin State Capitol, make a trip to Memorial Union Terrace, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Henry Vilas Zoo, and take in nature's colorful creations at Olbrich Botanical Gardens.

To see ratings, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Madison trip planner.
