Best college towns in America: Madison, Wisconsin (Home of University of Wisconsin)
Madison, Wisconsin is actually home to more than a dozen higher education institutions. Obviously, it’s most well known for the University of Wisconsin, where the Badgers play high-level football every season. However, the student body of this city reaches well beyond just Badgers football. It gives the entire town a diverse feel.
The University of Wisconsin itself is sitting on the edge of Lake Mendota. The lake brings so much for students to learn. Ever try ice fishing? They can on Lake Mendota. Haven’t heard of snowkiting? The lake provides that as well. There are ice skating and ice hockey games going on in the winter as well. During the warmer months, it provides awesome scenery to the campus.
Since this is also the state capital, there are a plethora of museums and other historic landmarks to tour around the city. There’s also the biggest producers-only farmer’s market in the country. Get a taste of Wisconsin farms here.
Madison hires the graduates of the University of Wisconsin at an insane rate. This campus and this city are so great, people never want to leave.
