Has anyone ever done the chain of lakes in Madison? If so, would you do it again and are there any sights to see? Just looking to take a day cruise with the wife.

Thanks.

Yes many times, just went 2 weeks ago, Its Great, Depending on where you put in,
the sites are great.
I prefer Mendota, I put in at middleton-great boat ramp-big, lots of great food on the lake.
great view of the state capitol. We do the shoreline check out the house's, then cruise by the UW campus, and work are way around the lake. You can go through the small locks and go to Monona and Waubesa also. Are favorite spots are the Naughty Gal and the Mariner, Captain Bills (great food) follow the channel markers when heading that way.
