About Dudgeon-Monroe Neighborhood
Dudgeon-Monroe is one of Madison's most desirable, trendy, and hip places to live. The Monroe Street corridor is scaled to pedestrians with neighborhood shops (coffee, ice cream, ethnic dining) in historic storefronts. A fine art center, galleries, and neighborhood jazz fest (Jazz in the Park) are venues for the artsy folks. Cozy, two-story homes with front porches line the quiet residential streets. Downtown Madison, University of Wisconsin, and the hospitals are within a 1-2 mile radius of the neighborhood making it an ideal location to live for academic staff and students to families with young families to young professionals. An afternoon boating on Lake Wingra, walking along the paths in the University of Wisconsin-Arboretum, rollerblading on the Southwest Bike Path, or eating garlic mustard dishes at the Annual Weed Feed are only a few features that make this older neighborhood a fun place to live.
