Your Summer in Madison

You’re in for a treat.

Actually, summer in Madison is more than just a treat. It’s like winning a three-month supply of treats. The pace slows down, the temperature goes up, and the sunshine stirs up a different kind of Badger. Besides being an ice cream eating, sunset watching, Mendota dweller, you’ll be a part-time student! Here are a few tips to help you navigate through your best summer yet.
