7. Madison, Wisc. (pop. 240,323)
Madison is outdoorsy, educated, friendly, and progressive. Larger cities Milwaukee and Chicago are within driving distance, but even so, the city’s got its own day — and nightlife. Locals imbibe at slick video bar Plan B (PlanBMadison.com; Thursdays are 18 and over); the bear-leather-sports bar Woof’s (WoofsMadison.com): the big disco FIVE (FiveNightclubMadison.com); the relaxing Captain Dix (CaptainDix.com); and reborn dance club Cardinal Bar (CardinalBar.com). Daytime haunts include coffeehouses (it is a college town) and lesbian fave A Room of One’s Own, a feminist bookstore and coffeehouse (RoomofOnesOwn.com).
