Madison is the perfect mix of urban outdoors. With running, biking and hiking trails - there is so much to do but the defining characteristic of Madison is often left unexplored. At Madison Boats we want to help you get out, connect with your friends and family and also explore our wonderful lakes. To make this easy we have created two resources to help you explore:

The Madison Boats Top 10 Paddle Destinations

and the Lake Monona Water Trail.

We love to share our tips and favorites and if we are missing one of yours please make sure to share on social or email us directly at brittingha@madisonboats.com.
