University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum
A nice longer run out our front door toward the zoo. Go around the back side following the marsh and enter the Arboretum to have a peaceful route.
Fantastic large old prairie, huge collection of crabapples, magnolias, trees and shrubs. Really worth a visit.
“It's a great small zoo, kid-friendly, and free. Takes about 3 hours to go through at a leisurely pace.”
“nice atmo, convenient location, great pastries, snacks and drinks, wine tastings too.”
“The Chazen is home to the second-largest collection of art in WI: more than 20,000 works include paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, photographs, and decorative arts. ”
“Beautiful venue on State St where a wonderful variety of plays, concerts and other entertainment is always occurring.”
“Love the atmosphere and the neighborhood! Go on a nice day and they'll have the garage doors open on the south side. Parking is a little tricky, but you'll find something with a little patience.”
