The fall season in Wisconsin has always been my favorite thing about living here. As the weather starts to cool down and the trees begin to display beautiful colors, it is the perfect time to take in all the scenery around Kenosha. One of my favorite things to do is grab a light jacket, a warm cup of apple cider and take a walk around and see the colors - because this kind of beauty doesn't happen everywhere. 

My favorite place is Prairie Springs Park in Pleasant Prairie, where the colors are starting to change and the calm of Lake Andrea makes for a peaceful walk with my dog and husband. In addition to a beautiful walking path that circles the lake, you'll also find the Prairie Farms Trail that offers a recreational route for running, biking, and walking. No matter which route you choose, you'll be able to enjoy beautiful views and plenty of fall colors - and even some beautiful sun.

Another favorite place of mine is Petrifying Springs Park. I have taken many photos with my family here because it offers beautiful scenic landscapes. It also has great walking paths, as well as multiple hiking trails. There is even a dog park on the grouds so you and your four-legged friends can enjoy the crisp autumn air. Bonus: the Biergarten is open Friday - Sunday at the park, too (through mid October)!

If you really want to spend time enjoying Fall, I highly recommend spreading a blanket with some pumpkin flavored treats and just relax while taking in nature’s transforming beauty. Whether you walk around your neighborhood, or enjoy our lovely walking and hiking paths in Kenosha, take a break form life and always enjoy the scenery. No matter where you go in the Kenosha Area, you're sure to find a beautiful view.
