Madison Making News

July 29, 2014 9:08 AM

A recently released study from has named Madison the 15th Best City for Recreation! WalletHub compared the 100 largest U.S. cities in the categories of financial, park's quality, weather conditions, and entertainment and recreational facilities.  When you consider our weather last winter, that is pretty good.  Furthermore, in the last couple of months, Madison has also been named the 11th Best City for Families by WalletHub, one of the 10 Best U.S. Cities for Food Carts by USA Today, and the #2 Midwest City for green commuting by It's great to see Madison being recognized for all it has to offer, but I know you join me in not being quite satisfied with rankings of 15th or 11th.  We will not be satisfied until we are ranked #1!
