Start on State Street
Madison is a great college town, and the place to start your tour of the area is on State Street with its wide variety of restaurants, bars and shops. Start at Library Mall on campus and work your way up to the Capitol building, which is open to the public and has some wonderful architecture both inside and out. If you’re in town around Halloween weekend, the State Street experience intensifies. The area plays host to one of the biggest outdoor parties in the country that weekend, with thousands of partygoers coming in costume to State.
On Saturday morning head over to the Dane County Farmer's Market on the Capitol Square for fresh produce and other local goods, including Wisconsin cheese curds and sausage. It’s a good spot to pick up some last-minute items for your tailgate.
The UW-Madison campus sits between two beautiful lakes, Lake Mendota and Lake Monona. If you’re in the mood to relax by the lake, head to the Memorial Union Terrace and share a pitcher of beer while listening to live music. Or for those more adventurous, try renting a sailboat or canoe from the Union and paddle out onto Lake Mendota – weather permitting, of course.
The music scene in Madison is lively, too, with plenty of venues hosting bands on weekend nights. The historic Orpheum Theater located on State Street is one of the bigger venues in the area and has a restaurant as well.
