Excerpt taken from the Madison Tourism Guidebook:
Welcome to Madison, Indiana, a picturesque community that not only celebrates its rich history, but also incorporates the convenience of 21st century living. Madison sits along the banks of the mighty Ohio River surrounded by beautiful Clifty Falls State Park and retains the distinction of the largest contiguous National Historic Landmark District in the U.S. Designated as one of Indiana’s Stellar Communities and a finalist in the America’s Best Communities competition, Madison continues to demonstrate its commitment to preservation. From our beautiful river town with its rich history, unique architecture, and quality of life, to amazing festivals and events, we are committed to make Madison not only a haven for visitors but for residents as well. Visitors from all over the world continue to enjoy such things as river tours on the only New Zealand Jet Boat in the Midwest, spending an entire weekend at one of our festivals or events, or just relaxing at any one of our breweries or wineries. The American Queen and American Duchess
are popular visitors docking on our riverfront while their passengers explore downtown Madison’s wide variety of shops and restaurants. From outdoor and indoor performance venues, and an abundance of arts and cultural activities, Madison offers year-round activities and entertainment for residents and visitors alike.
Pam and I are looking forward to seeing everyone!
