Madison – Farmer’s Market on Capitol Square, and get a scone at Chris and Lori’s…yum!

Madison – tour the Overture Center for the Arts – you HAVE to see the Capitol Theatre…it’s gorgeous!

Madison – tour the State Capitol and see all the cool skylights.

Milwaukee Art Museum had a pretty diverse collection and wasn’t huge, so doable in a couple hours.


Historic Third Ward in Milwaukee – sounded cool, kind of a let down.

Are there any other number related things or best’s or whatnot you’d like to know? Leave me a comment below!
