Madison is a major center for commerce and education in the state of Wisconsin. The city got its name from former US president James Madison and was first settled in 1837. In the same year, the famous Capitol Building was established and more and more people flocked to the city. However, the land around Madison had been of great importance long before the settlers arrived. The local Ho Chunk natives prospered in the region they called Taychopera, meaning “land of the four lakes” (Lake Mendota, Lake Monona, Lake Kegonsa, and Lake Waubesa). Today, Madison is most visited for its stunning landscape and important landmarks, including Monona Terrace, the First Unitarian Society Meetinghouse, Memorial Union as well as the Wisconsin State Capitol Building. When Wisconsin became part of the usa in 1848, Madison could only count a population of around 620. However, after the University of Wisconsin was opened the same year, the city saw a great increase in immigration. Germans, Irish and Norwegians made their way to the city in masses after the expansion of the railroads in 1854 when the population rose to over 6,800 people. The city then experienced a prosperous era of economic boom which led to Madison being one of the most important university towns in Wisconsin today.
Madison and its surrounding lakes cover an area of over 15,000 acres, which is one reason why the region is famous for its outdoor activities. Water sports, such as fishing, swimming and waterskiing are amongst the most popular and waterfront dining is also a popular choice in the summer. USA Today named Madison one of the best cycling towns in the country as the area is home to over 200 miles of premier biking and hiking trails that offer stunning views of its natural beauty. The performing arts are also an essential part of the city. The local Forward Theater Company offers the best productions and the Overture Center for the Arts provides great insight into local and international art. The area from the Capitol to the UW-Madison campus is called the “museum mile” as it showcases some of the best treasures in the country and is truly a must for every visitor.
