About Madison: One of only two cities in North America situated on an isthmus, Madison shares many qualities of other well-known “college towns” like Berkeley and Austin—a creative and educated population—but retains a small-town feel. There are many excellent restaurants, an active theater community, live music and local musicians, more than 250 parks, and good shopping—yet Madison is just minutes from the beautiful rural countryside. National groups and magazines rank Madison highly for being a very bike-friendly city and a great place to raise a family, with a healthy and fit population, great health care and education systems, and an overall high quality of life. Madison was named the “#1 Best Place to Live” (among 100 U.S. cities) for 2015 by Livability.com.
