If your trip to Madison is all organized but your itinerary is looking a bit empty, we can give you a few hints and tips.
You'll have to rise with the sun if you're planning to see all the notable attractions this place has to offer. Wisconsin Historical Museum and Chazen Museum of Art are no-brainers. Camp Randall Stadium and Henry Vilas Zoo shouldn't be missed either.
Not too far from the city center, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art is one spot you might like to consider putting on your to-do list. If you still have some space on your travel schedule, Orpheum Theater and State Street Shopping will keep you entertained, as well.
Time to get those wheels spinning and venture out to Lake Mills. Just 25 miles away, a road trip here will be a piece of cake. Stop in at Lewis Station Winery and Tyranena Brewing Company to start discovering the culture of the region. Then continue your journey by visiting Lake Mills Golf Course.
Shorelines are awesome places to fly a kite. If it's a windy day, why not buckle the little ones into the car and go on an outing to Troll Beach? It's 16 miles from Madison and is a glorious place for some family fun.
If you're here to attend a business conference, you'll find Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center located 0.6 miles away. During one of the breaks, make your way to a nearby café to grab a cup of coffee — socializing and networking can be quite exhausting.
Here you'll find our top suggestions if you want to grab the biggest discounts on a rental car:
Sure, you can explore Madison without renting a vehicle. But with so much to see and experience here, having one would definitely make your trip more convenient and fun. If you're eager to get out of town and into Mother Nature, pick a car rental with some power. A mid-size or full-size SUV will get you to the area's lakes in comfort and style. Going to spend the majority of your time in the city? A mini or compact car is your best bet. Driving through narrow streets and squeezing into tight parking lots will be easy with one of these.
Sometimes the journey is more significant than the destination, which makes your car choice particularly important. If you're about to head off on an epic road trip around Madison, a spacious SUV could be the best solution. If you're hoping for a fantastic bargain and plan on doing a lot of city driving, a versatile compact is a wise pick. All you need to do is work out what's going to be the best fit, round up the troops, and start clocking up those miles.
