This spectacular collection of photographs takes the viewer on a stroll through the heart of Madison, around the Capitol Square and down renowned State Street, with stops at some of the most recent additions to the city's skyline, including the Monona Terrace Convention Center (original design by Frank Lloyd Wright) and the Overture Center for the Arts. Then it's on toward the University of Wisconsin campus, with its historic buildings, walkways, and the Memorial Union Terrace, one of the city's best-known spots for students and locals to meet, eat and listen to live music. The tour continues through Madison's diverse neighborhoods, visiting numerous ethnic restaurants, music festivals and the one Madison's most famous attractions, the Dane County Farmers' Market. The visual journey finishes with visits to the breathtaking parks and gardens scattered throughout the city.
