If you are thinking of moving to Madison, Wisconsin, here are two positive items to consider.
Madison is the #11 Healthiest Housing Market in the Builderonline.com Housing Market list.
Being the capitol city and home to the University of Wisconsin helps to keep unemployment low. The article states that Madison is one of the most educated workforces in the nation and consistently ranks well as a great place to live and work. That is great press for Madison!
In another web article today from msnbc.com, Madison, Wisconsin came in at #9 for the Healthiest cities for Women. (all those walking students may play a factor – the UW is a huge campus to cover, sometimes one end to another from class to class. I remember that very well…) The article states that 85% of women in Madison get regular exercise outside of work. That IS an impressive number! There are lots of bike trails in Madison and Madison is home to the Bicycling Federation of Wisconsin which holds a bike-awareness week every year.
