Summer has finally arrived in Wisconsin! While much of the country has been enjoying warm weather for at least the last few months, those of us living in Wisconsin have been experiencing an exceptionally cool and wet spring. But that’s finally changed, and it’s now time to experience summer along the lakes.
In Madison, there are plenty of places where you can relax along a lake shore and enjoy life. Of course, the Memorial Union Terrace is a beloved institution, a place where all of Madison seemingly gathers during the summer months. Picnic Point juts into the middle of Lake Mendota, providing moments of solitude along the wooded shoreline. But our two favorite spots to sit, watch the lake, and take in the sunset are on the eastern short of Lake Mendota – Tenney Park (especially along the breakwater that surrounds the lock) and James Madison Park.
With the warming temperatures and a bit of free time, we finally decided that we had to grab a coffee and head out to enjoy the evening along Lake Mendota. Even though we recently saw the amazing sunsets over the west coast of Florida, we found this one to be exactly what the doctor ordered. Enjoy!
