With the perfect mixture of small-town community, beautiful scenery, and growing business opportunity, Cottage Grove is a great spot to be. Although agriculture is still the foundation of this town’s economy, the opening of a new commercial park has drawn the attention of many entrepreneurs looking to grow or start their business. After a day at the office, join family and friends at either of the two championship golf courses Cottage Grove has to offer, or enjoy a nice bike ride on the 52 mile Glacial Drumlin State trail. Not feeling that ambitious? Just have a seat with your favorite drink and listen to live music at the School Grounds Cafe for a relaxing summer evening. If you’re in the mood for Italian, drive over to Papa Jimmy’s Pizzeria for pizza, pasta, or even ice cream to top off your day. Cottage Grove is also home to the Madison United Rugby team that routinely practices and plays at their nationally recognized sports complex. Even if rugby isn’t your favorite sport to watch, the school district offers a variety of different athletic programs to enjoy. As one of the fastest growing areas in Dane County, there is really nothing you can’t do in Cottage Grove.
