Welcome to
​​​​​​​The Near East -

Madison’s East Side - it’s where hippy old school meets hipster. Older, historic-style homes are punctuated with modern re-dos, condo and apartment living. Small homes or big- this side of town holds it all. Lake access is just blocks away - or out the back door.

The Vibe

The East Side has an easy and creative sensibility. And it loves fun and festivals. Foodie and craft cocktail spots abound. New and locally owned establishments thrive, and there’s always something to pique your palate or your palette. Fave hanging-out streets include WIlly, and Atwood and Johnson Avenues.

The Scenery

Framed by two big lakes and many trees, the East Side of Madison rolls down from The Capitol Square into its dual personalities - Bohemian and urban sophisticate - at once. East Washington Avenue stretches out with new apartment and condo dwellings, amenities and conveniences. Surrounding Williamson Street, affectionately known as Willy Street, is a joyful burst of color and free-form styles. Both new and mainstay businesses add to the lively, community-minded feel.

The Appeal

There’s an artistic, makers-type flair here, too - as in individuals making things happen. East Washington Ave., shoots straight north to Sun Prairie on Hwy. 151, past shopping centers, districts, and chains, and connects to the Madison Beltline, Interstates 90/94 and Hwy. 30 - the routes to The Twin Cities, the Fox Valley, Milwaukee and Chicago. ​​​​​​​
