  • Time to kill in Madison

    I'll be in Madison, Wisconsin, for a few days next week for work. Can anyone who knows the place recommend anything to do in the evenings?

      I think that this is the best recommendation.
      I live about 2 hours from Madison and the center of the city is beautiful, but can’t really recommend anything other than finding a bar. Wisconsin is big on bars.
      It will probably be too cold to enjoy the lakes and too warm for much in the way of winter activities.

          Drink it is so. Is there skiing in the area? I don't think I'll have time but that would be great.

              I'm sure there is plenty of cross country skiing, but don't know if there is much snow cover.
              I'm in northern Illinois and there isn't much snow.

              The only snow skiing resort I am aware of is Alpine Valley and that is probably an hour drive southeast of Madison.
              I'm sure there are others to the north.

              If you go north of madison there are some casinos as well the "Dells".
              And for some reason you will find a number of strip joints close to the Illinois border.

                Thanks. It's still looking like beer is the way to go. I always feel I'm being exploited at strip joints. It's like paying for a hooker and not getting to close the deal (not that I engage women of horizontal refreshment).

                  My sister studied in Madison for a couple of years, but that was more than a decade ago. Maybe I'll ask her.....

                    There is a ski hill (not very large) in Portage, WI which is about 30 minutes north of Madison on I-90/94. If you visit State Street in Madison you must stop at State Street Brats. History wise, Camp Randall was a CW training camp and I believe there is a monument or two to that era.

                      State Street Brats looks great. I'll check it out, thanks.

                        If you have the time go north. Canada is always a good time. I believe there are some casinos north of your area past the Canadian border.

                        As for Madison, Wisconsin..There should be a few colleges that offer division one basketball at this time of the year. A division one college basketball game is a great way to spend your free time.

                          I've only got two evenings free and have to be of sound mind and body both days so can't go too crazy in the evenings.

                              Is that because he's in Madison in February?
