  • Is a cultural city feel the vibrancy of student started State Street, and the University of Wisconsin. Many bus and to stay in the long term take about $ 60 month unlimited pass is recommended is. Wisconsin is on the same latitude as Hokkaido, winter is cold but thriving agriculture and dairy farming, which guests enjoyed than to eat cheese and sausage. Because there are many exciting opportunities you are looking for opportunities on campus for free movie watching, museums, Opera appreciation take actively try outpourings in the city?.

  • The Botanical Gardens were nice. Even though not much was blooming since it was the end of March, I still liked walking around, especially since the outside portion is completely free. The gardens are decently sized and I imagine in the summer it's just gorgeous. Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view. The Thai pavilion was really cool to see. The greenhouse was neat, take your time walking around because there are so many plants! I love how they had birds in there, that was a great surprise. And it only cost $2 to get in, so reasonable. They do close at 4, which is a bit early, but it worked out fine for us.
  • We came here in April 2017. I had been here a few times before. It's one of the prettiest gardens in the Madison area. It's a perfect place to go on a nice sunny day. It's a really relaxing atmosphere. You could spend hours looking at all the different plants. Sometimes they will even have lots of butterflies too. This is definitely a great Madison landmark. I always enjoy coming here.
  • One of Madison's must-see attractions! Highly recommend visiting during summer time to get the full effect of the gardens. The highlight being the beautiful Thai pavilion! Don't forget the Bolz Conservatory which can be seen year-round ($2 admission)! Very helpful and friendly staff. Olbrich also does a great job hosting community events throughout the year, including many concert series and art installations. Check it out!
  • It has a shop. In the summer it's where you want to be. There is beautiful peach trees and other trees , there is a trolley that comes it takes you all over the gardens and it stops and waits for you. There is lots of beautiful sights like a tower you can climb and a golden Tower too. They need your support to stay free. Inside you can find different types of trees it is nice and warm kind of humid but it's a great place to enjoy.
  • Went to see the Christmas light display and was well pleased. Haven't been there during the day when the plants are in bloom in some years , but it was beautiful back then and I'm sure they've continued the tradition. Wonderful place to visit with family or friends
