It's been called the most livable city in the nation. This is Madison, Wisconsin, where Smart Solutions, Inc. was founded and where it operates today.
Also known as Mad City, Madison rests on an isthmus between Lakes Mendota and Monona, two of the five lakes in the immediate area. Madison is Wisconsin’s state capital and home to one of the world's great universities, the University of Wisconsin. Madison means Nobel prizes, Big Ten sports, independent coffee shops, restaurants that range from student hang-outs through ethnic experience to haute cuisine, and the chance to get moving with sailing, fishing, hiking, biking, and more.
So much to do!
Hang out at the Union Terrace overlooking Lake Mendota, take a UW mini course, or cheer the Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium and the Kohl Center. Explore Madison’s parks, neighborhoods, art venues, and neighborhood shopping areas, and participate in some of the best eating in the Midwest. Sample middle Eastern, Japanese, Indian, or Italian specialties, all within walking distance of the city center, or shop for fresh locally grown organic fruits, vegetables, herbs, baked goods and more at the Saturday Farmer’s Market. Sample the best cheese and dairy food in the nation, buy genuinely home-made baked goods and home-canned preserves, then get fitted for your custom bike or kayak and work off those treats.
Hike or bike for miles, take a sailing lesson, or stroll through the Arboretum and overlook acres of preserved prairie, marshlands, and specimens of native or exotic but well-adapted trees, shrubs, and hardy perennials. Learn how to cater for birds, butterflies, and native species in your backyard. Jet ski in summer, paddle your canoe, join a crew team, or go cross-country skiing out your front door when the snow flies.
Madison offers the culture and entertainment of a big city while maintaining a small-town quality of life. In addition to the University's many programs and major commitment to the arts, Madison hosts classical music, rock concerts, jazz, blues, holiday specials, and Broadway shows at the Overture Center for the Arts. Home to Madison Ballet, the Madison Symphony Orchestra, and the Madison Opera, the Center also provides venues for Kanopy Dance, four art galleries, and the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.
