Crime & Safety
Madison is an incredibly vibrant city full of culture! Having moved from Las Vegas, I was apprehensive about what I may find, but was pleasantly surprised and absolutely impressed. There is no shortage of music, art, food, festivals, shopping, and of course stunning lakeside views. The city is always growing and always adapting to the needs of the community. I take great pride in living in a place where such great care is taken. Madison, with its many exceptional schools, leads the nation in research and advancements in agriculture, medicine, business, and environmental health and safety. The opportunities that I have had here have allowed me to be successful and well rounded. I am happy to call Madison, Wisconsin my home.
Madison is a comfortable bubble for open-minded, creative individuals and families. Artists, intellectuals, weirdos, and politicians rule this city! There is a park for every neighborhood and a restaurant to represent every type of cuisine. In many ways, it is a sublime combination of city and small-town living, nestled between two sparkling lakes and crowned with the sleek capitol building. However, there are issues with racism and homelessness and the mayor is a bitter, cold, mustachioed Grinch, both of which detract from Madison's overall awesomeness.
I love this city. It has the small community feel, safety, and simplicity of a smaller city but the conveniences of a true city. Madisonians are proud! Proud to be local, to shop local, to eat local - with tons of farm fresh food, an incredible outdoor farmer's market around the capital square, and an impressive number of tasty restaurants. Madison fosters entrepreneurship, arts, and ideas so while new restaurants are popping up all the top, the local business are also rich and ever-growing and you'll be busy with our local art museums, film festival, comedy, and music events. Don't leave your bike at home, Madison will show you new ways to enjoy it, with great trails, a happening bicycle community, and so much lakefront biking around our isthmus.
