The charming community of Verona offers the best of both worlds: it’s close to key attractions and businesses in south central Wisconsin, but it’s also a place where visitors can relax without the headaches of a larger city. Here are five reasons why more people are choosing to visit Verona for work and pleasure.
Hub of the Wheel
Verona is a just 15 minutes from downtown Madison and the state Capitol, the University of Wisconsin and home to major area businesses like Epic Systems. We are central to many favorite destinations like New Glarus, Mount Horeb, Middleton and of course, Madison. Stay in Verona and be minutes away from loads of fun destinations!
Walking & Biking
Verona is a bike friendly community with the Military Ridge Trail cutting right through downtown and the Ice Age Trail providing access to the north side of town. You can also pick up the Badger State Trail and the Capital City State Trail in Verona and visit surrounding communities!
Main Street has also recently undergone renovations to improve walkability and provided grants to beautify storefronts. Now we have an adorable Main Street with the Verona Downtown Farmers Market every Wednesday in Spring, Summer and Fall, Music on Main, and the brand new Polar Express Trolley Ride at Hometown Junction Park.
Verona is an ideal place for a meeting or event. Its lack of big-city distractions and logistical problems make events productive. Coffeeshops, Restaurants, and city parks help attendees relax and stay fresh between meetings.
Verona is an active community of young parents who are always looking for something to do. The Verona Area Chamber of Commerce plans frequent community events that are fun for the whole family including Hometown Days, Fall Fest, Hometown Holidays, the Spring Egg-Stravaganza, Concerts in the Park and more! Its a great way for visitors to soak up the local flavor and an invaluable opportunity for business to consumer connection.
Verona is also proud to be home to one of the top-rated school districts in Wisconsin.
Verona is thinking about the future and focused on efforts that protect the environment both for this generation and the next.
