Fantastic time spent in a nice little city. Nice people, nice bar and pubs, the only thingh Iwouldlike to have next time I get there it's to find more activities on the river during summer
As a person walks down the street, they are bound to be stopped at least three times by neighbors wanting to say hi and chat about how life is going. I love this area because it's not super small, so you get a range of people from city dwellers to country hicks. Sauk City is located 30 minutes from Madison and the Wisconsin Dells, making it the perfect distance for weekend activities. This is the type of environment I would love to live in for the rest of my life and eventually raise a family in.
