The Tourist Attractions in Kenosha:
While Kenosha is not packed full of tourist attractions the city does have a large tourism industry and is particularly popular as a destination with more local people. Outside of the United States Kenosha isn’t exactly renowned as a top tourist destination even though it does have a variety of attractions. Shopping and recreation are both popular here, and you could also consider using Kenosha as a base to explore more of this region of the USA, incorporating day trips to nearby cities such as Chicago and Milwaukee.
One of the top draws for tourists to Kenosha is HarborPark. After a period of redevelopment this lakefront waterside area has now become an upscale place to live and visit. As well as the condominiums with fantastic lake views there are promenades where you can walk and enjoy the lake, taking in the variety of attractions along the way that includes sculptures, fountains and artwork. There’s a large recreational marina too if you have the desire to take to the waters, and HarborPark is home to several Kenosha museums: the Kenosha Public Museum, and the Civil War Museum, both of which are worth a visit.
HarborPark features its own little water park which is great fun for the kids, but if you want to enjoy the beach and the lake you can do so along one of Kenosha’s Lake Michigan beaches.
When staying in Kenosha many visitors enjoy using the historic Kenosha Streetcar line which has been operating now for over 100 years. This is a fun and environmentally friendly way to get around the city and lets you experience a part of Kenoshan history too!
