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: Wisconsin Dells (Ghost & Vampire Tours, Original Wisconsin Ducks, &more) and Taliesin Preservation: Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center (in Spring Green). There's still lots to do: get a sense of history and politics at Wisconsin State Capitol, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Henry Vilas Zoo, make a trip to Memorial Union Terrace, and take in nature's colorful creations at Olbrich Botanical Gardens.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Madison trip itinerary planning tool.
