What is there to do in my city? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves far too often. It is a natural human tendency to think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, that we’d have plenty to do if only we moved to another city. The problem with this sentiment is that it ignores the plethora of distinct opportunities and means of exploration that are unique to each American city—from the metropolises of the coasts, to the farming towns of the Midwest, to the mountain villages of Alaska. Seek, and you will find ample opportunity for fun, for immersion, and for growth. A Resident’s Guide to Madison, Wisconsin, gives the leaders of Madison’s most highly respected businesses, shops, organizations, non-profits, and events the chance to tell their own personal story; why they do what they do, sell what they sell, and help who they help. The authenticity of these essays gives an inside look into the humanity behind each of these establishments, as well as their uniqueness. And when you’re done reading, you’ll never have to ask what there is to do in Madison again! The book is divided into the following themes/chapters: 1. Museums 2. Outdoors 3. Art & Literature 4. Health & Fitness 5. Fun 6. Shops 7. Volunteer Opportunities 8. Religion, Ethnicity, and Culture Enjoy!
