Great university towns: BBC Travel rates Madison number 3

November 24, 2013 11:41 AM

In the article titled "Great university towns", the BBC's November 20, 2013 issue of "Living in" rates Cambridge, England number one, Valparaiso, Chile number two and Madison, Wisconsin number three in their list of great places to live.  "Close to major metropolitan centres but inclusive enough to exert their own sphere of influence, university towns and the thousands of students who mingle with the residents there create their own microclimate. Usually liberal and forward thinking, the cities listed here have culturally vibrant, well-educated populations and are often ranked as some of the most sought after places to live." 

"With its downtown on a narrow isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, and the college campus of University of Wisconsin-Madison spread along the lakeshore, Madison is perhaps one of the loveliest college towns in the US Midwest. It is also one of the healthiest, with pedestrianised streets, miles of dedicated bike lanes, four lakes and numerous parks."  And District 2 resident Cheryl Theo is quoted in the article!  For more of their assessment of Madison and to read the entire article go to:
