4 Hours of Summer Fun in Madison

So you’re in Madison for the weekend and you want to do something fun and make the most of your time while you’re here.   If you love the outdoors, Madison BCycles, or Red Bikes,  are a great way to get around and they’re only $3/30 minutes.  Plus, you can check them in and check them out at any red-bike station around town.  A nice trek is renting them on the corner of Williamson and Blair and riding the bike trail southwest along Lake Monona.   There’s usually activity out on the lake, and there are baby geese and ducks in June who always enjoy breadcrumbs if you happen to bring some with you. After our ride, we walk downtown to Capitol Square and

Where to Go Snowshoeing in Madison WI

Have you ever wanted to try out the sport of snowshoeing and wondered where to go snowshoeing in Madison WI?  We have some suggestions for you and now that we now have enough snow to make this possible, give it a try! Winter is here, and doesn’t it look beautiful? There are many that appreciate the warmer temperatures however, I always look forward to being able to enjoy the snow and ice throughout the winter. When I think of the cold, snow and wind…well, really just the snow, it makes me think of sledding, skiing, ice-skating and snowshoeing. I love being able to get outside and having the sun shine on my face and feeling active, almost in defiance of

Perfect Spots for Romantic Sunset Views in Madison

Sunset Viewing in Madison Lately, as I walk through the neighborhood on any given evening, there are several times I have to take in a deep breath and take in the aroma of a grill prepping for dinner. Finally, I put together the fixings for shish kabobs and grilled asparagus. I even happened to have some fresh cut rhubarb available and used it to put together a tasty treat for dessert. It was well worth the wait. After dinner, concluding that we really would enjoy ice cream as a companion to our dessert, we headed out for the errand.
