Fast food. Culver's is a Wisconsin Fast food chain which started in Sauk City (located 40 minutes northwest of Madison). The Cottage Grove Road store is very popular and busy. The owner of this store is very involved in the local community. For a quick meal, it's a good spot.

Cherokee Marsh - North Unit

Located in the middle of a residential area, it's a quiet hiking trail with a small pond and a beautiful managed oak savanna. Great for bird watching, blue birds, sand hill cranes, an occasional waxwing, finches, various raptors, & perhaps even a great horned owl. Connects to the Aldo Leopold Nature Center ( a must see for nature lovers)

Costco, where you can buy all your bulk item needs! The area around Costco is a budding shopping center with lots of restaurants and a variety of shops and stores. Aldi's a Woodman's Grocery is also nearby.

Sightseeing
It's the iconic Wisconsin State Capitol. One of the most beautiful capitol buildings in the US. Often the site of protests and political activism. Every day has the potential for an adventure. Capitol offers daily tours. Want to have a picnic? The Capitol lawn is as good as any spot to enjoy a warm summer day. Wednesday's in summer also feature the Concerts on the Square. The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra performs an eclectic mix of music each week. If you plan on going, go early (like several hours) bring blankets, wine, beer, and snacks or an entire meal. The concert on the square is kind of a big deal.
