A Girls’ weekend is not complete without a giant sleepover at the Kirby House!! With themed room names like the Sheep, Fox, Owl, and Jackalope rooms, each nook of this house offers a different and unique experience. Depending on the size of your group, you can reserve the entire property and have the house to yourselves.

On Saturday mornings Farmview hosts a farmers market with local vendors. Head inside for breakfast (oh, the rooster biscuit!), a cup of joe, or refuel for the day with their juice bar (the Kale-icious is our personal favorite!)

11 am: Facials at Pure Bliss Spa

This iconic building, once serving as a Livery Stable as part of Madison’s downtown corridor more than a 100 years ago, has now been beautifully re-purposed, restored, and transformed into a new-and-improved Amici’s Italian Cafe AND Brewery (that’s right, complete with tanks and a full bar!). Amici Livery brews their own beer (as well as having local favorites) and has a great selection of pizza, sandwiches, and salads!

2 pm: Walk around the Historic District and take a look at the houses
