Baltimore Sun Sunday - - TRAVEL -

Madi­son is the site of both the state univer­sity and the state cap­i­tal.

The Univer­sity of Wis­con­sin oc­cu­pies a beau­ti­ful cam­pus, part of which bor­ders the lake. Fol­low the stu­dents’ lead and head for nearby Capi­tol Square and its slew of restau­rants, en­ter­tain­ment op­tions and unique shops. Dom­i­nat­ing one end of the square is the Wis­con­sin Capi­tol build­ing, the tallest build­ing in Madi­son and vis­i­ble from al­most any­where in the down­town area. The im­pres­sive domed struc­ture soars more than 284 feet, mak­ing it just one yard shorter that the na­tion’s Capi­tol in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. Be sure to make your way to its ob­ser­va­tion deck for a bird’s eye view of the city.
