What are some of your favorite activities to do in the Madison area?

There are lots of fun things to do in Madison! A few of my favorite activities so far are watching the sunrise over lake Monona and sunset over Lake Mendota, kayaking and paddle boarding, going on picnics by the lakes, and tasting an endless supply of delicious cheeses at the farmer’s market. I’m excited to continue to explore what this beautiful and vibrant city has to offer!
