Madison is a quaint capitol city. It is very walkable with easy access from the state house to the lake shore. There are biking and running paths around the lake to get out and enjoy the fresh air.

I visited in the late spring when the city is full of warmth and sunshine with a nice breeze blowing off the lakes. I loved the availability of walking/biking trails and the well-maintained beauty of the area around the capital building. Very nice!
