Overview of Fitchburg

With a population of 25,260, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Fitchburg, Wisconsin, is a growing and diverse suburb.  Located directly south of the capital city of Madison, Fitchburg is both ethnically and geographically diverse. Home to both urban complexes and thousands of acres of farms, Fitchburg is the true up-and-coming neighbor to already-established Madison.

Fitchburg is a young city, with a median age of only 32.9 years. With obvious age concentrations under 5 years and in the 25 to 35 years range, it seems that many young families are taking advantage of Fitchburg's proximity to Madison and relatively low housing costs. Fitchburg doesn't yet have the picturesque feel of nearby suburbs like Middleton or Verona, but it's certainly on its way: The population of Fitchburg increased by about 23 percent between 2000 and 2010.

Living in Fitchburg, WI

Because it shares a border with southern Madison, Fitchburg's northern areas are relatively urban. This area is not the right fit for some, as it is still up-and-coming. Moving farther south, Fitchburg becomes more and more rural, with farms and rolling hills dominating the landscape. Western Fitchburg, which borders suburban Verona, primarily consists of recently-constructed suburban neighborhoods, perfect for young families who want to take advantage of Fitchburg's lower housing costs.

Many areas of Fitchburg are serviced by Madison's bus and transit services, offering gas savings for commuting residents. With Madison's famous State Street nearby, Fitchburg is a short drive from an exciting nightlife scene. During the school year, populations rise throughout the Madison area as students pour in from all parts of the world. Fitchburg is not particularly affected by the university, but University Wisconsin's presence permeates the entire Madison area.
