For some, it’s about the journey. For others, it’s the destination. For residents of Kenosha, it’s both.
The journey is half the fun in the city that stretches along the shores of Lake Michigan. Kenosha has a fleet of restored electric streetcars offering a two-mile scenic drive along the lakeshore to the Metra or various stops along the way.
Transportation has always played an important role in Kenosha’s development. Millions of cars and trucks were produced in the city from 1902 to 1988, and rail service has connected Kenosha with Chicago since 1855. Today, Kenosha’s Metra station has several inbound and outbound trains every weekday.
But enough about the journey, there’s a lot more to say about the destination, starting with Kenosha’s lakefront.
Almost all of the lakefront here is publicly accessible, including five lakefront parks with beaches. The lakefront is at the heart of the community and hosts outdoor concerts, art fairs and festivals, and a European-style market.
The Harbor Park development includes lakeside condominiums, a large recreational marina, beaches, parks, fountains, and museums. The condominiums offer homebuyers a decidedly city vibe, putting residents within close proximity of downtown Kenosha’s arts, unique shops, bars, and eateries.
The city also has four historic districts on the National Register. Historic brick homes and storefronts with Classical Revival details have been restored and now house local businesses.
