Least Favorite Place
Least Favorite Place:
The frontage road north of the Beltline between Todd Drive and Fish Hatchery Road
I've had to walk this stretch a few times because I like to visit Johansson's but bus service is infrequent and inconvenient. It's noisy, has a vaguely unsafe feel, and is boring like no other stretch of walkable road in Madison. Even Odana Road has things to look at, and a somewhat human scale. That frontage road is impersonal and empty and creepy. At least there's a sidewalk.
