Welcome to Madison, Wisconsin's little capital! This in-app audio-tour will navigate you through its downtown between the Monona and the Mendota lakes to showcase the local German-American culinary heritage and major landmarks. To start the tour, you will check out the Madison Central Park and hear about the history of Madison. As you walk the Capital City Trail paths together with the many cyclists, you will see that Madison has the highest per capita ratio of cycling-commuters in the U.S. After the stroll, you will get a chance to savor authentic German dishes at the famous Essen Haus restaurant. From there, you will get to the emblematic Monona Terrace, a spectacular convention centre designed by legendary Frank Lloyd Wright who was born in Madison. Don't miss trying out the cheese specials and the rare Wisconsin lagers dating back to the 19th century at the museum-like Old Fashioned restaurant after that. Next, you will explore both the geographic and cultural center of Madison, which is the leafy Capitol Square, to find out what made Madison the state's capital. The tour ends at one of the top 10 sports bars in America, the legendary State Street Brats bar, to show you the city's four iconic sculptures nearby. On your way there, you will drop in a small, eccentric Lisa Link Peace Park to relax and escape from the bustle of the State Street. Join this tour to experience Madison as the capital of America's most culturally German state!
