Welcome to Madison! Below are some resources to make your trip a little more fun—most within walking distance of Upper House.



Many nice restaurants are in our vicinity. (We recommend you narrow your search to the “Capital/Downtown” and “State Street/Campus” areas.)

You can also dine at the UW-Madison’s Memorial Union on Lake Mendota. Head north down East Campus Mall, across the street, cross the plaza, and your nearly there.

And if you want to stay in the East Campus Mall area, there are a few fastfood places, as well as Fresh Market, which has a food bar, sushi, and grab-and-go meals.


Venues (Theatres, museums,  and more)
