We’re glad you’re here or considering making the Madison area your new home. What makes Madison special is hard to pin down. It’s a vibrant place. A one-of-a-kind place. Outdoorsy, storied, chic and down-home. It’s a mid-sized city that perfectly blends urban style with natural beauty and small-town ease. As the state capital of Wisconsin, and the home of the University of Wisconsin, Madison’s got a vibe and personality unlike anywhere else. Plus, there’s a wide variety of activities in our backyard. World-class arts, live music found nightly, over 250 parks and five glittering lakes. Our weekly year-round farmers’ market is known throughout the country, and our restaurants serve food grown at farms down the street. Add in our growing craft beverage scene, and you’ll see why Madison is a favorite among foodies, too. In fact, when it comes to living, working, playing and raising a family, we consistently rank at the top (just take a look to your right)!
