Welcome to Kenosha, Wisconsin - vibrant community nestled on the shore of Lake Michigan in the southeastern corner of the state. Midway between Milwaukee and Chicago, it’s a year-round destination suited for most any taste or budget, and is known for its friendly people and one-of-a-kind places.
Our Lake Michigan shoreline is one of our most popular features, with nearly 90 percent publicly accessible via parks, beaches, festival places and a miles-long promenade. The lakeshore also boasts five one-of-a-kind museums, an authentic electric streetcar system, two historic lighthouses, and the popular Kenosha HarborMarket. A vibrant Downtown district full of shopping, dining and the arts is ideally located just steps from the lakeshore and makes for a truly special visit.
Away from the shoreline, the Kenosha Area is teeming with opportunities for fun! Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets and Jelly Belly Visitor Center are visitor favorites that you’ll want to build into your itinerary. If it’s the great outdoors you seek, Kenosha’s western region delivers beautifully. Pristine golf courses, tranquil inland lakes, hiking and biking trails, a ski and snowboard area, and so much more await you year-round.
