One of America’s most attractive cities, Madison long has been known for academic excellence and outdoor amenities. The city also is gaining recognition as being seemingly recession-proof. That’s partly because of the number of government jobs, as well as positions in biotech.
But more than that, Madison is a wonderfully livable place. Lakeshore Park offers a popular route for hikers, joggers, and nature lovers, with numerous picnic spots and a sand beach along a trail connecting 300 acres.
