Wisconsin winters are a great time to get outdoors and embrace the fresh, crisp air.
Downhill skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, sledding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, fat tire biking in the snow, skating on an outdoor ice rink – what's your winter pleasure? We have it all!
When the snow starts to fly, Kenosha rolls out the white carpet with wintry fun for all ages!
Here’s a helpful tip when visiting the Kenosha Area to do snow-related activities: You can use the Snow Report at TravelWisconsin.com to learn about the local trail conditions for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and downhill skiing & snowboarding.
And that’s not all! Winter in Kenosha means Merry & Bright Christmas events, Kenosha Restaurant Week during a nine-day span in February, and the Snow Daze Festival in Downtown Kenosha on one Saturday in February.
Please join us for #KenoshaFun – winter-style!
