kids at Bristol 45 DinerWhere are you going for Spring Break?  If your answer is Kenosha, then let’s get the party started!  Whether you live in Kenosha or are just visiting, you will find that there is so much for the kids to do!  Since Spring Break is scheduled at different times for everybody, this itinerary covers Kenosha kids’ activities through the end of May.  If you are visiting for Spring Break, you may just want to extend your stay….


First things first!  Where are you going to stay? 

May I suggest the Wyndham Garden - Kenosha Harborside, Best Western Executive Inn, Comfort Inn & Suites, Country Inn & Suites, Hampton Inn & Suites, or Springhill Suites by Marriot?  They all have an indoor pool!  Museums, restaurants, shops, and other activities are all in walking distance or a short drive away.


Where are you going to eat? 

Staying in Kenosha makes deciding on a restaurant easy, or hard depending on how you look at it! For starters, how about some breakfast?  Parents will love Bristol 45 Diner for their coffee, golden omelets and skillets and the kids will enjoy golden pancakes, French toast, homemade crepes, and waffles.

A fun lunch spot to try would be the Brat Stop!  Kids can choose from all their favorites brats, grilled cheese and burgers. 

And for dinner, what kid doesn’t love pizza? Kaiser’s Pizza & Pub will satisfy that pizza craving and kids can pick from other fun foods like chicken, tenders, grilled cheese, deep fried mac and cheese and a good old grilled PB&J. 

Hot Mess StudiosAnd to satisfy those sweet tooths, be sure to visit Scoops Ice Cream & Candy, Smarty’s Sweets & Treats, and Sandy’s Popper.


What are you going to do?

Things to do with kids in Kenosha during Spring Break aren’t hard to find at all.  Channel your inner Jackson Pollock at Hot Mess Studios!  Get messy and make something beautiful by being your own artist and enjoy the process of creating splatters on canvas! 

Visit Lemon Street Gallery & ArtSpace for free and see lots of unique and creative art pieces.  There’s even a Youth Pottery class on March 19 for kids ages 10-14. 

Alpaca Art is another fun, family-friendly spot where you can paint your own pottery.  The catch with this one is that you will need to pick up your finished piece a week later…see?  I did say that you might want to extend your visit! (Or they will ship your art to you!)

At Pinot’s Palette, take advantage of a couple Spring Break specials on April 12 for a Day Dreamer hot-air balloon painting and a Cat on a Wire painting on April 13. 

Love art and books?  Visit Donovan Scherer’s Studio Moonfall for one-of-a-kind books, buttons, art and monsters, most created by the store owner himself.

Are your kids missing school, already? 

Well, if they are looking for an educational fix, on Wednesdays at the Kenosha Public Museum between 9:30 and 10am, preschool-aged children can have fun at Museum Munchkins!  On March 15, they will learn about Giant Pandas, March 22: Horses and on March 29: Manatees.  Take part in the Eco-Science Festival on April 22 and don’t miss the Archaeology Day Expo on May 13 at 4pm. There are two sessions of the Spring Break Fun Camp (there is a fee): March 28-30 and April 11-13.


Love live entertainment? 

Go see “And Then There Were None” performed by the Lakeside Players at the Rhode Center for the Arts between March 24 and April 2, “Beauty and the Beast” from April 21-30 and “Charlotte’s Web” from May 19-21. 

Go listen to the Masters of the Romantic by the Kenosha Symphony Orchestra on May 6 at Reuther Central High School - Ralph J. Houghton Performance Center.


And finally, since it is Spring Break after all, get outside already!

Take part in the Maple Sugarin’ Time program at Hawthorn Hollow Nature Sanctuary and Arboretum through March 18.  Celebrate Easter early at the Full Moon Easter Egg Scramble at Old Settlers Park on March 31 for kids aged 11-17.  Boundless Adventures, the outdoor aerial adventure park located in Bristol Woods Park, opens April 8 for a new season of fun.  During Leave No Child Inside: Spring Break, enjoy free outdoor nature activities at Pringle Nature Center in Bristol Woods Park (April 12-16).  Don’t miss the Aquanut Water Shows at Lance Park starting on May 27 and Kenosha Kingfish Home Baseball Games start on May 29!
