I enjoy staying active outside of work, which is quite easy to do in Madison, Wisconsin. There are ample opportunities to engage in a variety of sports, from pick-up basketball to pickleball, at numerous parks and gyms across Madison. Additionally, the city’s diverse culinary scene has inspired my interest in cooking, making it another enjoyable hobby.
What are some of your favorite activities to do in the Madison area?
Madison offers a wide range of enjoyable activities for both residents and visitors, which is one of the reasons I appreciate living here so much. I particularly love the numerous events that Madison hosts, including, but not limited to, the Farmer’s Markets and various music festivals such as Dane Dances, La Fete de Marquette, Concerts on the Square, and more. Exploring the beautiful UW campus, visiting the Olbrich Botanical Gardens, and taking my dog for long walks in the city’s many dog parks are other activities I relish.
