    Make The Most Of Your Vacation - From Coast to Coast!


Greetings Getaway Lover,

Madison Vacations - Madison Tourism

The sprawling University of Wisconsin sets the tone for

numerous restaurants (more per capita than anywhere 
else in the U.S.) and a good share of cultural and 
historical attractions. Stunning glacial waterways make 
the City of Lakes one of the more picturesque state 
capitals in the country. More than 150 parks offer 
residents and tourists plenty of recreational areas to 
choose from. If you visit the campus, be sure to try 
the famous Babcock Ice...   

Happy Trails,
Jan

Weekend Getaways to Madison

Cream at Memorial Union or Babcock Hall, before or after a 
visit to the Elvehjem Museum of Art's collection of Greek,
Roman and Egyptian antiquities. And to really get into 
the college spirit, head over to State Street's eclectic 
range of ethnic restaurants. Be sure to try the mouth-
watering bratwurst sandwich on a homemade bun at State 
Street Brats, a student favorite. At the end of State 
Street, the white granite, Roman Renaissance-style 
Capitol dominates the skyline and offers an observation 
platform for views of the city and lakes.
