How old are you??
can i ask specifically, where in Madison??
My girlfriend & I life here and we love it!
Edit: Just saw where, it's a nice area for sure.
I've grown up around here my entire life, pretty much everything is on target. Summers are super slow downtown because all the students go home. If you're not big on the student scene, further up on state street, "the square" is a great place to be because it does become a bit less crowded.
If you're looking to meet people though, you've come to the right place!
I'm 24. Yeah it sounds great and I don't mind the cold so the winters shouldnt bother me like they would others. And speaking of meeting people, one big gripe with this move is leaving my friends behind so my girlfriend found some site called meetup where there are groups that meet up for various reasons. Interesting to say the least haha
