Christmas is over, our bellies are full of cookies and hot cocoa, and we’re all out of money after graciously giving so many holiday gifts. So, now what do you do? We have found some great, fun activities for you to do in and around Madison between now and the end of your winter break that involve little or no cost.
If you are going to be in town this summer, you are definitely in luck. Madison has a lot to offer when it comes to enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Summer is arguably the best three months of a Wisconsin year. Without studying and Badger Athletics to occupy your time, you can spend your summer checking off the items on our:
