Most of us weren't born in a small town. But more and more people are taking singer John Mellencamp up on the virtues of living, working and dying in the type of place he extolled in his 1982 hit "Small Town."

The best part of living in Waunakee, is that you can have the small town and yet also be near a thriving culturally active city in Madison, a mere 20 minutes south of Waunakee.

There is world-class entertainment, to be found every night of the week in Madison. From the Madison Opera and touring productions at Overture Center for the Arts, to indie-clubs with up-and coming international talent, Madison has everything you want.

Madisonians, as well as our Waunakeeans, enjoy a healthy lifestyle With over 120 shared-use trails and paths, five major lakes and 29,000 acres of parkland designated for recreational use you can find us biking, hiking, swimming and skiing across our beautiful city throughout the year.
