Located on Lake Michigan just north of the Illinois border, Kenosha’s crown jewel is its lakefront development, Harbor Park. This breathtaking parkland along the waterfront blends beautifully with the adjacent historic downtown featuring quaint shops, galleries, an outdoor market, and eateries – all linked by a vintage electric streetcar system.

The city’s lakefront museum campus includes the Kenosha Public Museum, Dinosaur Discovery Museum, Kenosha History Center, and the Civil War Museum. Completed in 2008, the Civil War Museum’s state-of-the-art exhibit technology examines the connections between the home front and the battlefront during the nation’s bloodiest conflict. Outlet shopping, great family festivals, charter fishing, and four historic districts round out the area’s many attractions.
