One of only two cities in North America situated on an isthmus, Madison shares many qualities with other well known “college towns” like Berkeley and Austin – including a creative and educated population – but retains a small-town feel. There are many outstanding restaurants, an active theater community, live music, more than 250 parks, a plethora of summer and winter outdoor activities and good shopping – yet Madison is minutes from the beautiful rural countryside and just two hours from Chicago’s O’Hare airport. Dual-career couples often find exciting positions for their partners at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, one of the nation’s leading research-based Universities, or at the rapidly growing biotechnology and healthcare IT companies like EPIC and its many spinoffs. National groups and magazines rank Madison highly for being a very bike-friendly city and a great place to raise a family, with a healthy and fit population, great health care and education systems, and an overall high quality of life.
