What Bert Has To Say About Madison Metro Area

The state capital and home to the University of Wisconsin, Madison is clean, attractive, progressive and well-planned. The city itself surrounds a pair of lakes- Lake Mendota and Lake Monona- both of which provide recreation and attractive views from many city business and residential locations. The downtown is exceptionally clean and gives strong evidence of the city’s twin roles as state government center and college town.
