State Street, Madison
On a rather hot (90°F - 32·C) summer day in Madison, I decided to visit the Contemporary Art Museum. The bus, which I conveniently picked up right in front of my condo, took me directly in front of the museum on State Street. With the exception of buses and service vehicles such as police cars, State Street is a popular pedestrian street. Small shops, pubs, and restaurants line both sides of the street. During the warmer weather, it's a great place to sit outside to dine out and watch the street performers and passers-by. Aptly named, the street is one of several spoke-like streets leading up to the capital (pictured in the upper right corner of the top photo).
