Madison

The City of Four Lakes

Madison might be the capital of Wisconsin, but students rather than politicians give the city its identity.
Step out of the city life by going to Zipline and International Crane Foundation. Get some cultural insight at Taliesin Preservation: Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center and Wollersheim Winery & Distillery. Step out of Madison to go to Baraboo and see Devil's Lake State Park, which is approximately 56 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: gain some tasty knowledge on Hop Head Tours, wander the streets of State Street & Downtown Madison, and ponder the world of politics at Wisconsin State Capitol.
