Madison, Wisconsin's vibrant capital and home to the NCAA's Wisconsin Badgers, has a bit of something for everyone, making it a perfect weekend destination to explore with friends and family. If you're in need of outdoor recreation, grab a football and head over to Tenney Park. The area is surrounded by lush scenery and borders Lake Mendota and the Yahara River, so bring your camera for some Instagram-worthy pictures. You'll also want to snap some pics of the Wisconsin State Capitol, a marbled and stunning building reminiscent of Roman-style architecture. Sports fans might want to check out the University of Wisconsin, where said Badgers can be watched and cheered on at Camp Randall Stadium. The first-floor rotunda can't be missed, either, and if you stop by the Lantern Balcony, you'll be rewarded with a view of Madison and its surrounding lakes, undoubtedly among the city's biggest highlights. There's no better place to spend the last evening of your weekend trip than the Memorial Union Terrace. Buy some snacks from the Brat Stand and lounge around as you look over the water and contemplate where your next adventure might take you.
