City of Middleton

In 2007, Middleton was named the number one best city to live in the United States by Money Magazine. In 2011, the same magazine ranked the city number 8. What makes Middleton so consecutively great? Jobs, family activities, shops, and more make it a wonderful place to live. With a border on Lake Mendota and several parks, there's a lot of green space and water activities to take part in. The walkable downtown has all the necessities, plus unique shops and quirky attractions. There's a pool with a waterside and a splash pool to enjoy during the summer. Many residents make a pretty easy commute to Madison for work, but there are also a couple large employers within the Middleton city limits. The area's golf courses, fun attractions, and recreational areas also attract tourists in the summertime.

1 Vista Rd. - Regent Neighborhood

The neighborhood is bordered on the north and east by the University of Wisconsin campus, and within a mile of Lake Mendota. The eastern end of the neighborhood is anchored by the University of Wisconsin's Camp Randall football stadium and fieldhouse. On football Saturdays in the fall, the neighborhood is awash in Badger red and white. The central part of the neighborhood is quite a lively place. The Regent-Allen Neighborhood Commercial District has a cluster of neighborhood-oriented shops (coffee shop, food co-op, hair salon) and artistic retail galleries and shops. The western end of the neighborhood at Farley and University Avenue is anchored by Lakeside Commons shopping area and the commercial node at the intersection of Highland and University Avenue - both areas have a fine selection of eating establishments and local businesses. Stevens Park is located on the western end of the neighborhood. Many neighbors walk (or bike) and shop to support their local businesses. Hillington Green Park is one of those other neighborhood gathering places: kids playing in the summer to ice skating in the winter that makes living in this neighborhood special. Regent Neighborhood is home to two highly desired public schools in Madison: Randall Elementary and West High Schools. Both schools provide the neighborhood with a fun level of liveliness: kids walking to and from school, homecoming parades, and musicals and theater productions at our doorstep. We are a walkable and bikeable neighborhood with easy access to UW campus and hospital. The Southwest Bike path goes through the neighborhood as well of the new campus bike path, the latter is lighted with new solar-powered light fixtures.
