The travel section of the New York Times just published a wonderful article, if not a tad ambitious, about the variety of fun things you can do in a mere 36 hours in Madison, WI.

The hard-driving itinerary consists, among other things, of: a tour of Camp Randall Stadium, visiting the Memorial Union Terrace on the U.W. Madison campus; sampling Wisconsin cheeses or local culinary delights at one of several ethnic restaurants and dining spots featuring organic, locally grown food; exploring Madison’s many bike paths; getting to know Madison’s famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright by touring Madison’s beautiful Monona Terrace civic center (and taking in the city’s best water views from its roof garden and café); grooving to some live music at one of several downtown hotspots; gearing up for canoeing, kayaking, rowboating, or paddling on Lake Wingra; and finally, ducking over to Willy Street or Monroe Street to explore its many quirky boutiques, bars, and restaurants.

Check out the full article here for some great recommendations for specific restaurants and hotspots, several of which feature ilve music.

Last time I was in Madison walking close to the water at the campus. The mood was exciting; overall I love Madison.
