What is the best way to see Madison in one day?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Madison is an extremely bike-friendly place, so it’s encouraged to explore the city on two wheels. Rent a B-Cycle (only $6 for a day pass) and you can cover some serious ground. Download the app to find the 40 drop-off/pick-up locations around town.

If you're staying downtown, start at the capitol building and check out the impressive Overture Center for the Arts, cruise down State Street and end up at Memorial Union Terrace to relax and gaze at beautiful Lake Mendota.

Or, if you are a nature lover, take your bike up to these spots on the northeast end of Lake Monona — Aldo Leopold Nature Center, Olbrich Botanical Gardens or Tenney Park — to see the city in all its natural splendor.
