What to do with my time in Madison?

by kimod74

I will be in Madison on April 23-27th. My husband has a conference there for his work and I will be tagging along to get the heck out of town! We will have the weekend to do a few things/sightseeing together, any suggestions on what to see or do in Madison in a day or two? We will be staying at the Campus Inn right by the campus and will not have a car so I would like to know what to do in that surrounding area.
Also, any suggestions on casual atmosphere restaurants by this area would be appreciated!

Some suggestions:
You will be right next to State Street, a large pedestrian mall that runs 7 blocks from campus to the state capital with numerous unique shops and restaurants, so be sure to spend some time walking up and down State Street and for a very casual meal, swing into State Street Brats for a good old-fashioned Wisconsin brat (just named the 13th best sports bar in the country).

If it's nice outside, I recommend walking west a couple of blocks to the Terrace at UW's Memorial Union a large "patio" where one can sip a beer on Lake Mendota (you can even rent canoes/sailboats there - if they're open this time of year)

The Madison Overture center is on the north end of State Street and is a brand new complex for the arts, you could check on shows/performances, supposed to be neat, but I have not been there.

If you like sports the UW spring football game in Camp Randall might be that weekend (not sure).

Some ethnic eateries I can recommend on State Street: Kabul (Afghani cuisine) at 541 State, Husnu's (Turkish) at 547 State, and Madison Masala (Indian) at 227 State. Mmmmm, I'm hungry already!

Awesome thanks! What about the weather? What's it usually like in April (23-26) time?

Re: Re: What to do with my time in Madison?

The weather is very unpredictable the end of April. I would plan on mid-50's to mid-60's as the high and it could get down in the 40's at night.

You'll definetely want a jacket of some type.

If you are looking for nightlife (grabbing a drink)--State Street will be packed with college students late on the weekend (which can be a blast), but if you want something more laid back (and mature) try some of the bars around the capital (I like Magnus and the Great Dane Brewery)

Travel Tips for Madison

Monona Terrace Conference Center

by yooperprof

Another Frank Lloyd Wright design, this was constructed posthumously, VERY posthumously, in the 1990s. It is only a few hundred yards from the state capitol, and sits right on the edge of Lake Monona. Wright designed the building to take maximum advantage of the site.

Time Machines? What?

by Brangus10

Let's imagine you are in a shop in Madison and wish to pay for your purchase with a credit card.

CLERK: I'm sorry, we don't accept Visa, but there is a time machine over there.
VISITOR: So I can transport myself to a distant future when you do take credit cards?

Here the clerk is referring not to a science-fiction device but rather an automatic teller machine, which Madisonians commonly refer to by the brand name Tyme.

Biggest collection of stuff you'll find here

by Tom_In_Madison

House on the Rock.

Amazing place, you'll either love it or think it's real tacky. Hard to's got everything and a lot of it.

Alex Jordan, a collector, owned and started it. Not in Madison, but in Spring Green about 30 miles west of here. I was last here 15 years ago and it took 4 or 5 hours to walk thru it all. Thankfully there was a cafeteria like place about 2/3 of the way through.

High point is the 'infinity room' a small narow room that comes to a point about 218 feet off the building. All glass, you can look down and you're about 154 feet above the ground and nothing but trees below you.

Has a huge carousel in the middle of it.

Best Way to Start your Day

by wifoodie about Marigolds

The is absolutely the best breakfast spot Madison has to offer. In fact, I would challenge it to any breakfast place in the states! It is a small, counter service spot with brightly painted walls. It is often crowded but the kitchen if efficient and keeps up with the pace remarkably well. That being said, this is not the place to go lookikng for a quiet spot to set up with lap top and drink coffee for hours. The 2 owners value local farming and ingedients. The menu is always changing featuring the seasonsal produce. They are open M-sat 7am -2pm. Lunches are also wonderful. Sandwhiches are served on great breads. The salads are loaded with toppings and topped with awesome vinaigrettes. I encourage you to visit their website to check out the menus. Although driving around the capitol square can be confusing, this place will definitely be worth your efforts! Breakfast sandwhich with nueskes bacon; Scramblers with crab, corn and asparagus; Omlette with roasted tomatos, artichokes and asiago cheese. Rueben made with home made corned beer; Cheesebruger has this awesome sauce on it; Grilled chicken salad with amazing light champagne vinaigrette.

Best downtown brewpub

by Tom_In_Madison about The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Co.

Best Brewpub downtown. Good hearty food portions and good beer made on site. Situated in an old turn of the century building that used to be a hotel. It has big room with pool tables, and room that passes as a bar, and a room for dining, and a room downstairs for parties. In the summer, there is a patio that has about 12 tables.

Try the Peck's Pilsner. As with all restaurants and bars in Madison, no smoking allowed. Big Ten Burrito is what I usually have. Huge, and tasty.
