Hey guys so it looks like I may be moving to Madison Wisconsin this summer in a couple months. An opportunity to move there with my girlfriend has presented itself and it seems a good move. She has a family house passed onto her and the only monthly costs will be utilities and such. With that said, I'm from NJ (right near nyc) and it's going to be a big change. Is anyone from the area that can let me know how it is there? Any advice on the area would be appreciated. Going to visit the house and clean it up a bit in a month or two so i'll get a feel for the area then and know if I definitely want to move but anything you can tell me would be appreciated. The culture, food, music scene, workforce, ect. Thanks.

I go to the university, where about will you be living/working?

First off, I've never been here during the summer (this year will be my first one) so this is all second hand knowledge. But campus itself is usually pretty dead during the summer besides a few summer classes, professors staying for research, and construction. That being said, State Street/Capital Square area is pretty much your go-to place. Just down the street from campus and on an isthmus between two lakes, lots of retail, museums/art gallery's, a few venues, lots of bars. Memorial Union and Monona Terraces are supposed to be great places to grab a pitcher during during the day if that's your thing. So if you're near campus all that should be pretty accessible.

I think your plan to kind of scope out the place next month or whenever is a good idea. Depending on when you're here you might get a really good glimpse of Madison at its best, right at the beginning of summer. I've spent all of one week in the NY/NJ area so I don't really know what it's like, but Madison is a passable small- to mid-sized city, especially if you're in your twenties.

Edit: That's a little bit off campus, a few miles, but in the right direction as far as nice residential goes. Sorry to say I can't give specifics for that area as far as things to do go. On the plus side, Madison is a great city for biking if that's your thing.

I mean, as a Packer fan I can admit that sometimes other Packer fans feel a bit entitled/butthurt when in all reality, we're pretty lucky as far as sports fans go. That being said, they're no worse than some fans of other teams that I know.
