After we had dinner on State Street with a friend, the friend come on I will show you around downtown! We walked up State and around the Capitol and back down State. A very nice building with a deranged guy as its leader.

One of the best state capitals in the nation. Very nicely maintained and kept. Highly recommend even if just for a walk.

We stayed close to the Square and the dining was excellent, with a great selection of pubs, formal dining and sandwich/lunch spots.

The center of Madison Life. There is the glorious farmer's market around the square on Saturdays. In the summer there is music and everyone brings their picnic dinners--some ornate with their own small tables.

I'm really not certain. I believe the Capitol has guided tours and is handicap accessible.
