Madison Magazine's June Issue

We’ve cracked the code on some of the Madison area’s biggest secrets — some under the radar and others hiding in plain sight. There’s something to be said about checking off quintessential Madison bucket list activities — cheese curds at The Old Fashioned, a game day at Camp Randall and strolling through the Dane County Farmers’ Market, for example — but we also set out to uncover some of the city’s lesser-known facets. We’ve added context, offered a few tips and even provided some specific directions. Use this guide to navigate the city in a way that’ll have people asking you for recommendations, because you have the inside scoop.

Also in this issue, enveloped in trees on the shores of Lake Monona, an enigmatic 10-acre estate with a storied past has become a secluded sanctuary that’s open to the public. San Damiano might become the Madison area’s newest lakeside destination.
