Madison is consistently recognized as one of the best cities to live and work in the United States. The University of Wisconsin brings culture, music, and intellectual stimulation to Madison all year round. Wisconsin’s state capital also has a resilient, stable economy. Madison’s unemployment rate is almost half of the national average.
Nature lovers will appreciate Madison’s proximity to the countryside, and its location amongst five spectacular lakes: Lake Mendota and Lake Monona are the two biggest, followed by Lakes Wingra, Waubesa, and Kegonsa. Madison has almost 300 parks, and there are enough walking and biking trails to keep outdoors enthusiasts happy, at least until the winter.
A friendly, laid-back atmosphere permeates Madison. It’s one of the safest cities in America. Another superlative reputation that Madison has earned over the years is “best college sports town.” The University of Wisconsin Badgers stay competitive in both football and hockey, and Madison fans love their team no matter the sport. Camp Randall Stadium and the Kohl Center are perpetually packed.
Madison is a fast-growing city of neighborhoods. The city is divided between east and west sides. Madison’s east side neighborhoods skew younger, hipper, and cheaper. Madison’s west side offers more upscale, historic districts. Both sides of town have a lot to offer, including the trendy Monroe Street area, the small-community feel of Williamson-Marquette, the downtown energy of First Settlement, and the family-friendly Vilas neighborhood.
