Spare Time: What to do between games in Madison...


Sites & Attractions

Due to the long drive from Portage (in '96), a long lunch to beat the heat (and late sleep) there was only time to take a trip around Mendota Lake including a break at the beach. But there is much more to do than that:


Can be tricky during Badger State Games!

Inconvenient to the downtown, but better for the baseball fan are the many newer hotels near the Washington exit off I-90/94. Other accommodations can be found off the other exits or downtown near the U of W campus, particularly State St.

In '96, I got shut out of town due to the summer Badger State Games and other activities.It made for a 33 mile trip down I-90/94 from Portage.

Opening Day '99 was easy with no trouble finding a room (off Washington). Reservations are recommended,just in case you trip is over some event.
