Madison might be the capital of Wisconsin, but students rather than politicians give the city its identity.
Bring the kids along to Henry Vilas Zoo and Mt. Olympus Resort. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Madison: Taliesin Preservation: Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center (in Spring Green), Miller Park (in Milwaukee) and Wisconsin Dells (Noah's Ark Water Park, Mr Marvel's Wondertorium, & more). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Olbrich Botanical Gardens, get a sense of history and politics at Wisconsin State Capitol, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at First Unitarian Meeting House of Madison, and browse the collection at Madison Public Library.
