Great place to walk during weekend's mornings during summer and fall seasons. If you go on Saturday, the farmers market is an excellent option to spend the free time.

One of the coolest things in town, the philharmonic orchestra plays classic and modern songs while you hang out on the lawn of the capital. Order food from places around the square, bring your own Picknick, dine in a seated area (ask beforehand, reservation needed)....More

We spend a lot of time at the Square. The farmer's market is like none other. The people-watching is great. The Taste of Madison is a wonderful event. Even just walking around at night around bar time can be entertaining. The view down State Street...More

I'm really not certain. I believe the Capitol has guided tours and is handicap accessible.
