A famous college town with a diverse population and year-round cultural attractions, Madison is a great place to call home.


Meet the Midwest’s most livable city.

Regularly recognized as one of America’s best places to live and most livable cities, Madison is Wisconsin’s second-largest city and the epicenter of culture in central Wisconsin. Sitting on an isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, the capital city boasts a unique mix of sophistication and casual, down-to-earth appeal. On a given night, residents can take their pick of international performing artists, outdoor adventures on lake or land, or an evening of award-winning restaurants and craft beers. Home to the world-renowned University of Wisconsin-Madison and driven by progressive values and a commitment to health and wellness, Madison has something for everyone.

Temperate, 80-degree summers make up for Madison’s cold winters. Still, residents make the most of the outdoors in any weather: swimming, hiking, skiing or ice fishing.

Madison’s 100+ neighborhoods are varied and unique, from bohemian Willy Street and the upscale isthmus to the family-friendly Westside and trendy Dudgeon-Monroe area.

With a well-respected school system and 3 local colleges, including the University of Wisconsin, Madison ranks second in the nation in education according to Forbes magazine.

In 2018, Madison topped’s list of Surprisingly Bike-Friendly Cities. Madison Metro buses service also provides citywide wheels, while Dane County Regional Airport and two major interstates connect Madison to Chicago, Minneapolis and Milwaukee.
