On the Road Friday ~ on a Monday ~ Good Eats and Sights ~ Madison, Wisconsin

Our family did a week long explore to Madison, Wisconsin in October 2017.
Each Friday I have been taking you on a trip to Madison. This Friday, I have something special to share with you, so we will take a little detour and head to Madison on Monday. 

 We will start with good eats.

Click above to check out The Old Fashioned.
This place has a great atmosphere and amazing food.
Wisconsin is King here .. Wisconsin foods and products are featured.

 The Taps at the bar.

 The Old Fashioned is across from the Capitol building.

 Next up on the list of good eats.. Babcock Hall Dairy Store 

We produce signature dairy products for the University of Wisconsin – Madison and the surrounding community. Through this, the Babcock Hall Dairy Plant and Dairy Store help support the University of Wisconsin Food Science Department’s mission of research, teaching and outreach.

  Chocolate Peanut Butter for my husband.

Some of the sights from the UW campus. 

Biking the city is easy. Madison has a bike trail system with easy to follow maps. 
Our boys loved the idea of biking from our hotel to the attractions.

Thank you for coming along with me on a Monday for a On the Road Friday.



  1. I enjoyed the tour. I could go for that chocolate ice cream and coffee! Hope you will have a great week and a happy Valentine's Day.

  2. The Horticulture Moore Hall would be the first stop for me as I love flowers and the dairy store for something cols to eat.Thanks for the tour.
    Hugs, Julia
