I live about twenty minutes from Kenosha, and I always love to visit often. Further in west, there are many stores and restaurants available for a weekend or nighttime outing with friends and family. Closer east towards Lake Michigan, we have a beautiful beach at Simmons Island, a tall lighthouse that attracts tourists, and many shops and and murals throughout. Photography is very popular in the downtown Kenosha area with all of the beautiful scenery, at any time of the year! There are always new events like small concerts, weddings, church gatherings, and much more. This town is full of life and fun for all ages. I highly recommend visiting Kenosha in your future!

Kenosha is a good town! Lived here since forever. We are right in between Milwaukee and Chicago so we have access to both cities. We have an outlet mall out in Pleasent Prairie with lots of good shopping places. Also, everything is about 20 minutes away so it is a good distance to where everything can be found. Very good education system.
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.
