“A great day trip or weekend”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

If you're looking for a nice family (or couples) outing, historic Madison, Indiana may be the place! There are great places to stay and great places to eat! There are shops with local artisans and crafts, as well as antiques - a little bit of everything for everyone!
There is plenty of free public parking and clean public restrooms.

“Awesome small city...Please visit!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We just love Madison...my wife went around photographing doorways and storefronts. It's a historian and architect's delight. Didn't they ever have floods or tornados? I once visited Springfield, MO and asked a shopkeeper where downtown was. He replied "This IS downtown." I wish ever city had the pride and enthusiasm of the locals of Madison, Indiana. Deano

“Beautiful Historic Town”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Thru our (Mom and I) travels, so far, this is the most beautiful historic town we have seen. It has been so well maintained. We're staying at a nearby town and find ourselves back in Madison at least once a week. Main Street is great and we never tire of looking at all the buildings and homes but we also like driving up and down all the back streets to see even more. Lots of places to eat and many stores to shop thru. The walk along the river holds a beautiful view. We're planning to enjoy the Ribberfest they are having next month. It seems this town always has something going on for entertainment. We just love it here!
