Kenosha Harbor

Kenosha Defines Fun

The Kenosha Area is nestled on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan in southeastern Wisconsin. Located midway between Milwaukee and Chicago, the Kenosha Area is an ideal getaway destination any time of the year. One of Kenosha’s most recognized features is its wide open access to Lake Michigan: nearly 90 percent of Kenosha County’s Lake Michigan shore is publicly accessible and miles of shoreline connect beaches, parks, bike paths, marinas and festival places.

Defining Fun

The 3 words I would use to describe the Wisconsin brand of fun are...

Appetizing, adventurous, and memorable.

The brand of fun in Wisconsin means...

Riding a Harley down picturesque country roads, climbing a lighthouse on a Great Lake, and enjoying a dairy breakfast on the farm.

Examples of Fun Experiences

To bring fun to life, we provide experiences like...

Riding an Electric Streetcar along the beautiful Lake Michigan shore, through two National Register Historic Districts and downtown Kenosha, and by three museums – filled with mammoths, dinosaurs, and Civil War history.

I know our visitors are having fun because they’ve told us...

And shared their Kenosha vacation photos with us on our social media pages.

We’re making sure our visitors/customers experience fun by training our staff...

Coming to the table as individual businesses and organizations to become partners for such events as Museum Crawl, Downtown Second Saturdays, and First Fridays at our I-94 Visitor Information Center.
