Downtown Madison Hotel Guide\n

You’ve already been to Panama and Corinth, but there is one elusive isthmus that you have yet to investigate. Luckily, you don’t have to leave the continent to complete the geographic oddity trifecta. The isthmus in question is a narrow strip of civilization in Madison, Wisconsin, that runs between Lakes Mendota and Monona. With that much water surrounding you, there are bound to be plenty of outdoor activities to engage in and Madison downtown hotels like the Hyatt Place—Madison, Downtown, put you right in the in middle of it all, literally and figuratively. Guide your kayak along the Mendota shoreline, cast your line into the depths and reel up a Monona muskellunge, or enjoy a leisurely stroll on the banks of either of Madison’s idyllic lakes. Then again, you could take in a show at the Majestic Theatre downtown, appreciate the many collections at the Chazen Museum of Art, or attend a seminar on campus at the University of Wisconsin.

What's the weather like in Madison, Wisconsin?

Weather in Madison is as varied as the four seasons, themselves. During the winter months, visitors to the Wisconsin state capital can expect temperatures to dip to zero degrees with significant snowfall which is in stark contrast to the 90-degree heat that can envelop the city in the summer. Aside from the few days in each of those seasons that see such extremes, the rest of the year is much more pleasant, with daytime temperatures ranging from 30 during the winter to about 80 in the dog days of summer. Depending on the time of the year you visit, your downtown Madison, WI hotel room at the Hampton Inn & Suites—Madison, Downtown may either be a warm retreat from winter’s sting, or home base for outdoor adventures in the warmer weather come springtime.

Given the wide range of temperatures that you will experience while in town, you can let the weather dictate your itinerary, to a certain degree. As the weather warms, the Picnic Point nature preserve on the University of Wisconsin campus is the perfect backdrop for a spring stroll along Lake Mendota. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better location for spending a summer afternoon than Yahara Place Park on Lake Monona. As the leaves turn from green to brilliant shades of red and orange, slide behind the wheel of a car from one of the many downtown Madison rental companies and make your way out to one of the nearby farms and sample some of the many cheeses that helped make the state famous. When the days get shorter, the nights get longer. Take advantage of that by sampling some of Madison’s local microbreweries, wineries, and distilleries. You may be a tourist, but you can drink like a local.

What is there to do in Madison, WI on a rainy day?

Thanks to the four seasons, there are going to be some days when the skies open up. Don’t let that be a damper on your stay, though. There are plenty of things to do in Madison on a rainy day. From the 28,000 square foot Odana Antiques to the thoroughly modern Hilldale Mall, there are more than enough options to appease any window-shopping warrior. If you want to be outdoors and dry at the same time, head underground to the Cave of the Mounds for some subterranean wonder. If you are a sports fan, the University of Wisconsin Badgers basketball teams tip off from November through March at the Kohl Center on campus.

No matter where you stay in Madison, or what you do while you’re there, use Travelocity to help book your stay. Not only will you enjoy a hassle-free reservation process, you’ll also save enough to make your time on the isthmus even more enjoyable.
