    Majestic Theater is a concert venue, not a movie theater.

  2. Steve Petrica

    What makes Bascom Hall “infamous”? Are you sure you guys know what “infamy” means? 😉

  3. Linda Atkins

    Oh, the beautiful Tenny Park locks are always fascinating, and the dinner cruise on Lake Monona! What a magnificent town!

  4. Mary Entwistle Shaw

    I would call it “famous”, far from “infamous” to be sure! How could anyone call it “infamous”
    anyway?

  5. Jenny Skrenes

    The view of the lake from The Admiralty Room at the Edgewater, before it was remodeled, in the dead of winter is one I will never forget. The designs in the ice, all whorly and perfectly symmetrical, were otherworldly.

  6. Austin

    While it’s gorgeous and provides a great view of State Street, the capital and Bascom Hall, it’s infamous because it is a huge hill that students must walk up and down to get to class. Any UW student could tell you how much they dread walking up Bascom, no matter the season.

  7. Jan

    Lincoln stands!

  8. Barry Hoerz

    Let’s not forget the many beautiful places within the UW Arboretum! Especially the lilacs in the spring!

    I’d rather live in close proximity of Milwaukee OR the Fox Valley where there there is a diversity of music and activities not just what the quiche crowd approves here in Madison. Some independent restaurants — not just chains would be nice Also, funny, you can go to Milwaukee or Door County and have lunch and a drink, or attend a city festival and have a beer without being “fenced in” or corralled. Madison is short-sighted. Good for college kids. Funny, other cities have colleges but have more to offer. Just my opinion.

    too bad The most beautiful Capitol building in the US, is overwhelmed by TALL surrounding ugly buildings.

  11. madison

    Having lived there for years, I think the most beautiful place is from Sandy beach at Ol’Brich park looking towards the Capitol on a starry, clear night. The reflection is beautiful.
