Meet At Lake Michigan


Kenosha harborAll-Things Lake Michigan in Kenosha


Kenosha is a Wisconsin Harbor Town! So that means a visit to Kenosha County in the far southeast corner of the state is not complete without stopping by Lake Michigan. Pause to take in the beauty of our Great Lake. The lake truly shapes our community as it draws people to its shore no matter what season it is. (Be sure to take photos!) In fact, Lake Michigan is Kenosha’s #1 attraction. Nearly 90 percent of Kenosha County’s shore is publicly accessible with beaches, parks, bike paths, marinas, lighthouses, and festival places. There are numerous on-the-water and on-the-land activities to enjoy at the lake.
