Historic Madison Tour

Join us for a weekend full of Wisconsin history! Check in Friday, September 25, and enjoy dinner at The Statehouse—favorites include a classic Wisco Friday Night Fish Fry, our Statehouse burger and Chef Juan Martinez’s Pastina. Saturday you’ll grab breakfast to-go from The Market on your way to our shuttle service which will take you to Taliesin Preservation in Spring Green, Wisconsin, the home, studio and school of American architect, designer, writer and educator Frank Lloyd Wright. Taliesin is designated as a National Historic Landmark (1974) and inscribed as part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site (2019).

You’ll experience the Highlights Tour which showcases the interiors of two significant, yet distinctly different Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings, Hillside & Taliesin. Created for the Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiast and the casual visitor, the Highlights tour couples the history and masterful design of two architectural landmarks into one quick-paced two-hour tour. In addition to visiting the two buildings, this tour includes taking our shuttle through the scenic Taliesin grounds past Midway Barn, Taliesin’s former farming complex. Covering spaces designed by Wright in 1902, 1911, 1932, and 1952, the Highlights tour is similar in format to our popular Estate tour, minus the one-mile walk and in half the time.

At your leisure, head to the Tornado Club for dinner on Saturday night, one of Madison’s oldest steakhouses.

Sunday, you’ll relax on the water with a historic boat tour of Lake Mendota with Madison historian and the author of On Fourth Lake:  A Social History of Lake Mendota Don Sanford. This narrated boat tour of Lake Mendota will view Madison (the only capitol city built on an isthmus) and hear stories about the people, places and events that have shaped the most studied lake in the world.

The Historic Madison Tour Package is $500 per night based on double occupancy and a 2 night minimum stay. Package is available September 25/26 only.
