The Marquette/Willy Street Neighborhood is a wonderful place with summer concerts and many places to visit and experience year round. The neighborhood is rated one of the best neighborhoods in the country; a lively, eclectic mix of families, hipsters, UW students, and all walks of life. The house is within several blocks of bus stops, the Capital City bike path, popular Willy Street Co-op grocery store, many great restaurants, a thrift store, pharmacy, and beautiful and historic Orton Park (which was Madison's first city park). The Orton Park Festival and Willy Street Fair are annual events in the neighborhood, taking place late August and late September respectively. The Waterfront Festival at Yahara Place Park takes place in June, and La Fete de Marquette takes place in Central Park in July. Downtown Madison is a 15 - 20 minute walk. Metro bus stops are a half-block away. Orton Park is a half-block away; B.B. Clarke Beach, Central Park, and Yahara Place Park are all about four blocks away. The property is situated perfectly for bike riding, running, and even fishing or canoeing!
