I lived here for about a year, lots of fun stuff to do. Good dive bars, restaurants and the farmers market is fun for the whole family.

Trying hard for a unified beautiful waterfront on the amazing Lake Michigan Harbour. Some very lovely and tasty restaurants. Not much shopping. Too many abandoned buildings that look awful. Nothing development money can't fix.

Cute stores and eateries with friendly owners. Wish more of the vacant storefronts were filled. Easy parking.

Downtown Kenosha is a delight. Two fresh beer brewery's, numerous restaurants for everyone's price range and taste buds. Two theaters offering plays and dance lessons. Museums. Just to name a few. Come to Kenosha summer or winter for an adventure in City revival.
