I have lived in other places (the Southern US) and if I had the choice to do it all again, I'd probably head back there. Southern Hospitality is a great thing!

I love Madison but you have to learn to live with the weather. I can be sunny and look like summer one day but the next day it will be 30 and snowing. There are a lot of fun activities to do in Madison for all ages! Over all its a great place to live.
There has been an increase in shootings and theft around the Madison area unfortunately but if you keep to the more populated areas everything is safe and well kept!
