  • Great place to read and relax on a summer's day. Beer is available but it's Wisconsin so that isn't surprising. Haven't encountered any obnoxious, vomiting drunks there which is more than I can say fo...  more »

  • This is what Madison does best. A lovely indoor and outdoor space to sit and enjoy a beer. And a brat of course. They don't have 46oz. cups like they used to, but of course you can always buy by the pitcher. Top notch people watching too, especially when the weather warms up.
  • The lakefront view of the Terrace in the summertime is beautiful. Weekly summertime events means there are plenty of reasons to go and grab a beer with a lively crowd. Speaking of beer, definitely consider the pitchers over the single pours.
  • The terrace is the place to be on a summer evening in Madison. Go here for a date with your sweetie, or hang out with your friends and drink some beers. There's something for everyone and the view can't be beat.
  • It's the Terrace. It's the best place to have a beer, on a nice day, in all of Madison. I partially blame it for statewide patio mania. And affordable! Sublime.
  • The pitchers of beer are a bit pricey (as you might expect), but there's usually some good selections on tap and the outdoor seating by the lake is perfect on a nice day.

Where to stay in Madison

The university and state politics draw a constant stream of visitors to Madison, so you'll find a wide range of accommodations in the city. Numerous hotels circle the campus, and some of these overlook Lake Mendota. Moving onto the isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, you'll find a handful of charming inns and bed and breakfasts, most of which offer panoramic views of the water. Areas south of Lake Monona feature national chain hotels and motels. These sit farther away from the action around campus and the State Capitol Building, but they can also offer water views and quiet settings near some of Madison's many parks.
