If you are planning a stay in Madison, Wisconsin, it would be a shame if you didn’t check out all that the city has to offer. Plenty of parks are scattered throughout the city, perfect for a stroll or playtime with little ones. There are multiple quality movie theaters Point Cinema, book stores Barnes and Noble, and shopping locations (West Towne Mall or Greenway Station) for those hoping to find some typical entertainment, but there are unique and fun attractions as well.
Take a stroll through the National Mustard Museum, formerly located in Mt. Horeb, to sample hundreds of different mustards, hot sauces, and other condiments that would go perfectly with a summer brat or sandwich. Head downtown to check out the University of Wisconsin Memorial Union Terrace, home to Babcock ice cream, live music, beer, and a beautiful view of Lake Mendota. If you’re more interested in a stroll through nature, be sure to check out Olbrich Botanical Gardens or Aldo Leopold Nature Preserve. There’s also a fantastic Zoo and it’s free.
