I'm not sure how the crime is because I'm not in Madison enough to know. The schools seem to be decent which I only know because I have cousins that live there. There is lots to do in Madison so that's why I like going there from time to time. The also offer free things to do like go to the zoo which is really nice.

My favorite places to go are the disc golf courses that are around and in the Madison area. My husband and I really enjoy going disc golfing and there is multiple places to choose from which is really nice.
