I am born and raised in Kenosha, WI. I absolutely love each neighborhood that I have lived in. Not only that, but I went through the school system here in town and was definitely prepared and supported through each year of school. Now that I am married I am living downtown and I love it even more than before. The downtown area has so much to offer in terms of entertainment, food, and even business. I love Kenosha!

I used to live in Racine before moving to Kenosha a few years ago. There's so much to do in Kenosha, whether you're going to a Kingfish game or celebrating the Fourth of July in downtown Kenosha there's always something to do!
Kenosha is a beautiful, scenic county connected to the cities of Milwaukee and Chicago through Interstate 94, with wonderful natural attractions like Petrifying Springs Park located near the University of Wisconsin- Parkside and Lake Michigan along the eastern coast. A great place for college students as many local businesses will give discounts when an I.D. is provided. Carthage College and the University of Wisconsin- Parkside offer world class educations that are suitable for any field of interest. The City of Kenosha has a lot to offer, especially during the summer months when there are festivals, concerts and other activities for people of all ages!
