The Southern Gateway Region
Home > Things to Do > Southern Gateway Region

Some of our state's most recognizable landmarks are found in Madison, including the state capitol, with its striking resemblance to our nation's capitol, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Spend a Saturday morning strolling the farmers' market on the capitol square, or take in a Badger football game at Camp Randall.

Just west of Madison, the region takes on a different flavor, say of mustard, cheese and microbreweries. In Middleton (a Madison ‘burb), there's the world famous mustard museum.

To the south, New Glarus, America's “Little Switzerland,” the New Glarus Brewing Company is a favorite stop.

In Monroe, cheese makers with gold medal pedigrees abound.

History buffs, art lovers, and antique enthusiasts will surely find themselves drawn to Mineral Point, the first city in Wisconsin to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In Spring Green, enjoy Shakespeare under the stars at the American Players Theatre. This area also claims Frank Lloyd Wright as its native son, with the Taliesen Estate nearby.

On the region's east side, there's the Horicon Marsh, a birding mecca much like the everglades, and home to blue herons, egrets and nearly 300 other species of birds.

To the south, Lake Geneva is a favorite haunt for well-heeled travelers who like to bask in the sun, spend a day cruising the lake, then take a driving tour past regal mansions.
