Enjoy a great variety of Madison Wisconsin Attractions
Enjoy a trip to this “hamlet” of over 200,000 people just 2 1/2 hours north of Chicago and you’ll be surprised to find out that there are a host of activities for everyone – whether you’re a family-group or a business traveler.
The Henry Vilas Zoo is a great stop for young and old. They started as a family operation in 1911 and still runs today on the premise that the zoo should be accessible to everyone – regardless of income or status. Therefore, keeping with an almost 100 year tradition, Zoo admission is completely free – that’s right FREE. What a great way to spend the day enjoying the spring sun or fall colors.
The Overture Preforming Arts Complex is a premier venue for culture and entertainment in Madison. Enjoy performances by the Madison Symphony Orchestra, the Madison Ballet, or even the visiting Chicago Symphony Orchestra on occasion. There is always a show to see or a symphony to enjoy while you’re vacationing in the Madison area.
From water parks and botanical gardens to festivals and museums – Madison offers a plethora of choices for the young and old. One of the best times to visit Madison is in the fall – go check out the Taste of Madison Festival September 1&2, 2007 and enjoy more than 60 restaurant vendors, 16 beverage vendors and 4 entertainment stages. Admission to the festival is free – and vendors will be selling their wares priced anywhere from $1 to $4.
While visiting all of these Madison Wisconsin Attractions, consider staying at an all-suite hotel such as The GrandStay Madison. If you’d rather be down town int he middle of it all – consider the Hilton or Holiday Inn choices.
