Madison’s Lovely Lake-Filled City Is Vibrant In Summer And Bountiful Of Activities


Top 7 Affordable Luxury Summer Holidays In USA At Your Fingertips


#3  Madison, Wisconsin

Madison has the state Capitol, the largest university, two big lakes and all kinds of attitude. There’s plenty to do if you want to stay put. But sometimes, you just have to hit the road and explore.



This lovely lake-filled city is vibrant in summer when most of its residents and visitors are getting in the water. There are 12 beaches in the city of Madison, from which you can enjoy freshwater swimming. Rent canoes, kayaks, or rowboats from Wingra Boats, or fish for crappies, bass, northern pike, and more — just be sure to obtain a fishing permit if you’re heading out on your own.

Scuba divers explore the lake, one of the clearest in Wisconsin. Hikers walk 500 feet above the lake on the East and West Bluff trails, lined by haphazardly piled blocks of rock.

Madison is surrounded by great candidates for a day trip — or a mini-vacation, if you prefer. It’s got cheese country to the south, Old World towns to the west, bicycle trails on three sides and good eating all around.

Mountain bikers of all skill levels have come to the right place. Madison’s Kettle Moraine State Forest boasts five loops of various lengths and difficulties. The more technically difficult Blue Mound State Park should only be attempted by seasoned bikers, but offers exciting terrain and views. If you’d rather toodle along on the pavement, head to the Capital City Trail, nine miles of which run through the wild Capital Springs Recreation Center.

During the summer months, Madison puts on various summer concert series, including Concerts on the Rooftop during June and July. With Peninsula State Park in Door County, it’s also the most popular camping park — reserve early.
