State Street – Great Place to Shop for Unique Gifts

State Street – Madison, WI – Specifically the blocks from Capitol Square to University of WI


My friends and I frequently go shopping on State Street. All the cute unique gift stores. Then we are sure to stop at one of the many restaurants. There are so many to choose from. It’s hard to pick just one favorite.

Overture Center is located here also. If we are headed to see a show we always plan a meal and shopping either before or after. Yes, even, sometimes both!
