Henry Vilas Zoo

Located in Vilas Park where the reception will be held, the Henry Vilas zoo is free and awesome. Neat animals include capybaras, gibbons, tapirs, and tigers.

House on the Rock

This is a weird house with odd collections located 1 hour outside of Madison. Collectors like Tiffany's Uncle Jack will particularly enjoy this site.
