The City of Four Lakes

Madison might be the capital of Wisconsin, but students rather than politicians give the city its identity.

And it doesn't end there: ponder the world of politics at Wisconsin State Capitol, don't miss a visit to Memorial Union Terrace, get to know the resident critters at Henry Vilas Zoo, and take in nature's colorful creations at Olbrich Botanical Gardens.
