Sports & Recreation

The greater Madison area is a mecca for recreational opportunities because we offer four seasons of fun! Whether you enjoy winter sports such as skiing or skating, love to be on the lakes (or in them!) for everything from sailing to swimming, or are ready to give golf and tennis a try, you'll wish you could spend all year here in Madison, Wisconsin.

If you've visited before, you know we boast about having more bikes than cars, and with more than 120 miles of scenic biking and hiking trails to explore, it's no wonder Wisconsin is accustomed to earning accolades in this area. Plus, more than 260 parks and beaches become a backdrop for everything from exercise to memorable moments captured on camera.

If spectator sports are more your thing, sit back and enjoy nearly every event a fan can wish for, from football at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to national cycling championships, hosted in many of our surrounding communities.
