It was a fun time walking up and down main street and seeing the historic byildings and checking out the cool shops. Several excellent restaurants and coffee shops too!

I consider Madison to be a MUST-VISIT site for anyone interested in the state's history. The historic district is small but absolutely lovely, with the attraction magnified by its location on the Ohio River. When you get tired of looking at federalist architecture you can sit on a free park bench overlooking the Ohio and watch the barges go by. I also recommend a tour of the Lanier Mansion and a visit to the Riverwalk Antique Store. There are also some good restaurant options nearby (although I do not recommend Jules and Chrystal as the owner is publicly abusive to patrons who post negative reviews).

Cute shops, restaurants, and coffee cafes with outdoor seating. Great antique shops - we've bought several pieces.

Even with COVID 19 restrictions, we had a nice time sightseeing in Madison. We found Madison to be charming. We hope to return someday to visit some of the places that were closed.
