Many communities in Minnesota are situated in high traffic tourist areas. In contrast, Madison is parked right in the middle of rich prairie lands. Madison's location makes it a natural gateway to Minnesota's "Lake Country". But Madison has more to offer than just lake life: six clean, uncluttered parks, swimming pool and tennis courts. An exquisite golf course. Goose, duck, pheasant hunting with gun, bow and arrow or camera. "Birding" at Salt Lake. Izaak Walton would keep fishing at nearby Lac qui Parle Lake his secret. The performing arts at the Prairie Arts Center. Winston Cup auto racing. The "Little Minnesota State Fair" - the Lac qui Parle Fair ! Stinker Days ! Oktoberfest ! Lou T. Fisk's Santaland ! and that is just a start !!!
Welcome to this old house ! The Lac qui Parle County Historical Museum - including an authentic pioneer log cabin, country school and machine shed as well as the actual studio of Madison native author Robert Bly are must sees at the J.F. Jacobson Park. So is Madison's cod statue, "Lou T. Fisk" since Madison is Lutefisk Capital USA !
Madison Parks are popular: the Slen Park with its swimming pool and tennis, Madison Square Park, Kiwanis Kiddie Park, Centennial Park and Athletic Park.
