Grab coffee at Ancora (107 King St.) and head to the majestic Wisconsin State Capitol (2 E. Main St.) Free tours are offered daily, and a sixth floor museum and observation deck are open Memorial Day – Labor Day.
Pop into Revel (107 N. Hamilton St.), an Instagram-worthy DIY studio on the Capitol Square. Then take your pick from nearby museums: Madison Children’s Museum (100 N. Hamilton), Wisconsin Historical Museum (30 N. Carroll St.), Wisconsin Veterans Museum (30 W. Mifflin St.) and Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (227 State St.).
Stay at the Speckled Hen Inn (5525 Portage Rd.), a cozy B&B located on a 20-acre farmette. Enjoy a home-cooked meal, before checking out Madison’s music and culture at a festival. Afterward, wander Willy Street (Williamson Street for your GPS) to check out quirky-cool shops, houses and street art.
The next day, take an art adventure on Main Street in Stoughton! Try your hand at metal stamping, atfelted wool, and pottery. Complete your visit with a trip to Livsreise, the Norwegian Heritage Museum (277 W. Main St.), or the Stoughton Opera House (381 E. Main St.).
