In 1996 Madison, Wisconsin's capital and home to the University of Wisconsin, was named the most "livable" city in the country by Fortune magazine. Madison has not only all the cultural benefits of a big city-theaters and the performing arts, ethnic restaurants, and art exhibits-but also the charms of a much smaller town. Surrounded by lakes, Madison boasts 200 parks, more than a dozen beaches, botanical gardens, and a zoo. This ride highlights some of Madison's best features. Things to see: Lake Mendota, Lake Monona, Lake Wingra, University of Wisconsin, State Street pedestrian mall, University of Wisconsin Arboretum, Wisconsin State Capitol.
