What comes to mind?
Two hours to wilderness or two hours to Chicago? Hay rides and sleigh rides? Excellent public schools? Lake, lakes and more lakes? A brown furry rodent wearing a striped sweater singing “On Wisconsin”? Arts and culture worthy of a large city without the hassle? A snowmobiler’s and cross-country skier’s definition of heaven? Legendary beer, bratwurst and cheese? Passionate political activities all taking place in and around a spectacular state capitol building? A world-class university? The Midwest’s coolest farmer’s market? Endless bike trails built to foster alternative transportation? A mecca of fitness and triathlons?
Madison is all these things and much, much more. Ask any resident what they like about Madison, and you’ll get (1) a big smile, and (2) a long list of loves that usually include the phrase:
Quality of life.
That’s what Madison is all about. It’s the best things in life, all in one place. Come check us out.
