We love all the dining options, bars and all around atmosphere in and around Capitol Square. These are a few of the reasons we travel from Florida to spend time here.

The Capitol and square it is located on is loaded with an assortment of dining, pubs and on the weekend a huge farmers market! Oh, did I mention cheese shops?

We are always here for the farmers market. Love the local fare and the view is to die for. We always get asked to take photos. It's always nice to grab a bit and sit on the grass and enjoy. The building is beautiful and the grounds well taken care of. Defiantly a must see in Madison.

We always arrive right at the start and have never had problems finding parking for our vehicle in nearby lots ($5 special event parking is very reasonable) or a nice spot on the capitol lawn for our...

We came to support a dear friend in his 2nd Iron Man competition & loved the venue! The whole area is gorgeous from the lake & the quaint capital square... The building & area reminded me of Wash D.C. but a cozier, miniature version. How exhilarating it was to cheer on the many men & women who are giving their... More

The Capitol building in Madison is a sight to behold. Unfortunately on the day we visited it wasn't open to the public - due to the weddings being held there. It is hardly an exaggeration to say there seemed to be weddings everywhere on this fine Saturday afternoon in summer. The interior is well worth a visit - we've been... More

Saturdays. Don't miss this! Rain or shine. One of the best I've ever been to. Lots of food to eat on the spot and to take back home to cook. Very impressive.

Of course, you have to walk the capital square. the storefronts are unique. the coffee shop on the corner with the open-air atmosphere was wonderful for our morning coffee. can't wait to return to Madison again.

Check it out! Wow! Nice building. Inside is amazing. Grounds are beautiful. Don't forget to go to Teddy Wedger's and look at the artists out front. Many people find an art treasure of Madison there. Come on a Saturday from April til November and enjoy the Farmer's Market. Lots of fun things to see and do "On The Square"
