We always enjoy a stroll along Lake Michigan: well-kept, clean beaches with great views. When travelling too and from the lake shore from I-94 through the city itself, the majority of the city looks clean and well maintained.

I didn't have high expectations, but Kenosha blew them away. We visited on a free day on our road trip and it ended up being a highlight of our trip.

So many shuttered shops! Stores that are still running are not open 5 days a week and many restaurants don't open until late afternoon-early evening. Such potential for a unique shopping/dining experience.

We enjoyed our stay last weekend. It's one of the largest farmers markets I've seen in a long time and the Taste of Wisconsin festival was going on. Nice town with nice people.

The streets have old quaint atmosphere in some sections. The waterfront have very nice pedestrian/bike paths. The retro trolley adds to the atmosphere. Too bad some prime locations are occupied by city government buildings.

Downtown Kenosha is much livelier during the evenings. There are 2 breweries, a TON of amazing restaurants (Sazzy B Is the BEST) and many local bars have music or other entertainment nightly.
