Browse our extensive data on Madison.
Home to the University of Wisconsin, picturesque Madison is the second largest city in the state. Having the university as the focal point of the city means that local residents enjoy a variety of restaurants, brewpubs, cafés, and bookstores, most of which are surprisingly affordable. For foodies, a trip to State Street Brats for a famous bratwurst, or a stop at one of the local bars for some fried cheese curds is an absolute must. One of the best parts about retiring in the Madison area is apparent on Wisconsin Badger game days, where the entire community descends on the stadium and the surrounding area. With direct access to Lake Mendota, those who enjoy being on the water (or a boat!) will find much to enjoy in the city. Madison is comprised of a variety of neighborhoods, with West Madison and Shorewood Hills to name a few. West Madison is known for its green space, as well as its proximity to shops, restaurants, and libraries. Shorewood Hills boasts a variety of Tudor homes, and is one of the most sought after communities in the area.
