The thing about shopping in downtown Madison is there is good parking and, once parked, you can easily while away several hours. There is a coffee shop, the Mad Bean, that serves breakfast and lunch, besides coffee. There is a restaurant, Southern Spirits, that serves dinner. There is a craft brewery that serves beer. Add a good selection of boutiques and you’ve got a good recipe for a day well spent.
It was just me and the tour guide, Beth Ford, and the house. We both wore masks, which are required, and I did not feel uncomfortable or unsafe in the slightest. They have two more dates posted to their Facebook Events page: October 18th and November 15th. This is a great tour for history buffs and photographers, so consider signing up if you have those dates free.
