Madison, the state capital and home of the world-class University of Wisconsin, is consistently ranked as one of the best communities in the country in which to live, work, play, and raise a family. Madison was ranked number 1 by Outdoor Magazine and USA Today, and Money Magazine called it the most livable mid-sized city in the Midwest.
The city offers both small-town charm and a range of cultural and recreational opportunities on par with much larger cities. Madison has more restaurants per capita than any other city in the country, and our downtown Arts District is flourishing. With four lakes and over 200 parks, there is a great variety of activities available to the outdoor enthusiast, including sailing, hiking, biking, and more.
The area has a reputation for excellent public schools, a family friendly environment, and as a healthy active community.
