  • The Terrace behind Memorial Union is on the shore of beautiful Lake Mendota. It combines that natural beauty with the excitement of being at a student and alumni hangout on the UW campus. Naturally, t...  more »
  • If you go to the shop this colorful Chair products are used as is famous. Ice cream, pizza, sandwiches can be bought at the nearby campus. So unreasonably high that universities can enjoy variety. Especially in the summer patio crowded with families and tourists. Ideal for when you want to break the Lake look good, so you should.

  • Whether you’re studying, meeting up with friends, or just want to grab a drink or bite- look no further. Incredible views of scenic Lake Mendota right in the heart of the UW campus. Plenty of food options, and pitchers of beer are a must.
  • Iconic is the best word to describe the union. Anyone’s visit to Madison would be incomplete without stopping here during warm ish weather or better. Children are welcome Pets allowed in certain areas Lots of ball game type food options Live music on some nights
  • Beer! Sunsets, people, great views, history. Perfect location, perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening. Bring the kids!
  • A nice terrace next to Lake Mendota, with a few food and beer choices on the terrace. Even just to find a place to sit down and enjoy the view and atmosphere.
  • 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.

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.
