Explore Kenosha

Located along the shore of Lake Michigan, the City of Kenosha has just over 100,000 residents and is Wisconsin’s fourth largest city. It’s a city that boasts small town charm and friendliness, but still offers a wealth of urban conveniences for a memorable visit. You’ll find miles of beaches and lakefront parks perfect for picnics, walks, kite flying and outdoor concerts. Its harbor is home to countless charter fishing and pleasure boats, as well as one of the Great Lakes’ last wooden schooners, Tall Ship Red Witch. During the summer months, weekends are filled with lakefront festivals, art fairs, historical re-enactments, and classic car shows that pay homage to the City’s auto making history. Cultural amenities are also prevalent here, with a flourishing arts scene and an emphasis on history, heritage and education. The City’s public museum system is among its jewels, featuring the Kenosha Public Museum, The Civil War Museum and Dinosaur Discovery Museum — all Smithsonian Institution Affiliates.
