Kenosha Area

Kenosha County is the perfect place to enjoy miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, relish the area’s rich history, or visit beautiful rural communities to get away from it all. Whatever the pace of your stay, Kenosha County delivers. With Lake Michigan on the east, and crystal clear inland lakes on the west, this area supplies the perfect water activity to float everyone’s boat. You can take a charter on the lake and try your hand at reeling in “the big one,” or enjoy the great activities along the shore. Kenosha County also offers an opportunity to journey into the past while visiting many historic places. From an array of cultural entertainment, such as plays, musicals and art galleries, to a wide variety of shopping opportunities, this county has it all. Sunrise to sunset, the Kenosha area never leaves you with a shortage of things to do and see.
