  •  Madison's a tough town for parking (1+ / 0-)

    The capitol is on an isthmus between two large lakes and parking is going to be at a premium. From Chicago your best bet is to exit at highway 151/East Washington Avenue toward Madison and just keep going west on East Wash until you see the capitol. You will have to loop around the capitol when you get close and you will see some ramps all along the way around.

    Here is the city parking info page for ramp locations, though they may all be full depending on when you arrive:

    Many have indicated they will park further out and take a bus. You could park at East Towne Mall which is on East Washington right after you exit the interstate and take a bus from there. I haven't used the system in a while, but the metro has a very good route planner. I think the #6 is probably what you want, but check it out:

      The suggestion about parking at East Towne Mall is a good one and probably what I'll do.  I'd grokked the idea of busing it and looked at the Metro but didn't know where anything really was.  I've been to the Capital so know where it is but anything else is problematic.

      You, too, are a mensch!

      Oh sure. Whenever I face a budget crisis the first thing I do is ask my employer to cut my salary.
