I like Kenosha! There are a lot of community programs and people are nice. They have public choice and charter schools for kids which gives parents more options for their childs education. There are also a lot of religious schools to choose from. Being right off highway 94, you can commute to Milwaukee or Chicago.

Kenosha is a family-friendly neighborhood that has segregated areas for poor and middle class families. It has charter schools available versus public schools which are above average academically speaking. West Kenosha is more marketable, clean and has great shopping centers versus East Kenosha which is populated with more mom & pop shops. Small Business owners would like the area and benefit the most in East Kenosha.
Kenosha for the most part is a quiet and relaxed place. I really do enjoy the fact that it has a some-what small-town feel while being one of Wisconsin's bigger cities. My best memories would spending my summer days in downtown Kenosha; downtown is by far the most lively and relaxed part of the city. All the shops, coffee joints, restaurants and bars are all locally owned and their own amazing charm. As far as tourism goes, the city doesn't have much to offer outside the local and civil war museum. What is nice is that both Milwaukee and Chicago are within driving distance if you're looking for a little more lively night. Kenosha is quiet but, quiet is also nice.
