How To Get To Madison

Since Madison is the capital of Wisconsin, all you need do is to head for the capital once you are inside Wisconsin.  You can take the road trip or fly to MSN and get the rental car to get to Madison from Wisconsin.  Public transportation is also reliable.  If you are coming from outside Wisconsin, say if you land at MKE or ORD, use interstate to get to Wisconsin and then use public buses to get to Madison.

  6. Wisconsin is such a great place, well after you get used to the smell of the farms and all that. I've actually lived in Wisconsin for a few years and it is quite a great place to live. I've never been to the state capitol though. Clearly missed out on that.
