Best time to visit Madison, WI, USA?

  • The best time to visit Madison is during the early fall when temperatures are still warm but accommodations are a lot cheaper. During this month, the nightly cost of an accommodation for 2 is around $110. That's half of what you would have paid in July. Average temperatures hover in the low 70s, just a bit cooler than the average 80°F you would get during high season.
  • The busiest season in Madison is in the summer so expect hotel and rental rates to surge during this period. February 16th - 20th (President`s Weekend 2018), January 12th - 16th (MLK Weekend 2018) as well as the Christmas week (December 22nd to January 2nd) are also popular dates that you should avoid if that's not the reason for your visit.
  • If you decide to visit Madison from November through March be prepared to encounter some snow.
