Top Things To Do In Kenosha, Wisconsin

Welcome to Kenosha!

Visiting Kenosha is like coming home. Whether it’s your first visit or your tenth, you just get that sense of community and camaraderie. You become fast friends with your charter fishing captain — and with your neighbors on the lawn of a free outdoor concert. You befriend the farmers market vendor who gives you recipe tips and invites you back next weekend.

It’s the friendly shopkeepers who make you feel at home in their “home”, homemade pancakes cooking on a diner’s griddle, Italian Sausage being served from a deli’s outdoor grill and car hops bringing your food to your vehicle at a drive-in eatery.

It’s an open mic event at a pub, movie night at a park or a wine tasting on a rooftop deck. It’s talking cars: Rambler or AMX? Gremlin or Pacer? It’s discussing cheese curds: squeaky fresh or deep fried?

Whether on the ski slope or in the ballpark, on a golf course or on a bike trail, you’re among friends. No matter which side of the 50 yard line of a century-old football rivalry you stand on, you’re welcome at a local watering hole, proudly wearing your team’s jersey.

Kenosha is a city that continues to evolve and reinvent itself. We once were known as an automotive town. Now we’re a community with cultural opportunities and a foodie scene that are quite impressive.

From a Great Lake to numerous inland lakes. From an urban downtown to the rural countryside. This is Kenosha County in Southeast Wisconsin. Kenosha is conveniently accessible via Interstate 94/41 and the Metra Union Pacific North Line — which is the train line departing from Chicago — as well as by boat and by air.

Friendly. Affordable. Fun.

A family outing at a museum. Dinner and a play for date night. A group of friends reconnecting at a craft brewery. Artists showing their work. Musicians entertaining an audience. College students seeking a comfortable home away from home. Entrepreneurs ready to follow their dream. A Midwest road trip waiting to happen. Kenosha is ready when you are.

We’re a Wisconsin Harbor Town — where Lake Michigan and its two lighthouses continue to shine bright.

It’s like coming home.
