Kenosha's Historic, Artsy Side
A great starting point in Kenosha is a stroll through HarborPark. Kenosha's crown jewel merges into the historic downtown quarter, with indie shops, local eateries, art galleries, and even an outdoor market selling fresh local produce. A ride on beautifully restored electric streetcars traveling a 2-mile loop past Lake Michigan, HarborPark, and many of the town's historic buildings is highly recommended.
Art lovers can't miss a visit to the Kenosha Lighthouse Studio at North Pier Lighthouse in Simmons Island Park. Bought by a local artist, the lighthouse is now a community space that promotes local artists, and hosts exhibitions and concerts. This landmark of the local skyline also makes a great photo opportunity with the lake as a backdrop.
Kenosha has a collection of four Smithsonian-affiliate museums. Check out the Kenosha Public Museum, home to over 80,000 exhibits covering fossils, decorative arts, world cultures, and more. Also consider the Civil War Museum, which honors the Upper Midwest men and women of diverse backgrounds who served.
