Kenosha County is the perfect place to enjoy miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, relish in the area’s rich history or visit beautiful rural communities to get away from it all. Whatever the pace of your stay, Kenosha County delivers.
An impressively productive fishing port near the Wisconsin/Illinois border, Kenosha is a convenient destination (it has its own airport, and is located just off the expressway connecting Chicago and Milwaukee) for prime Great Lakes sport fishing. The Coho really start biting hard around Kenosha in early May, along with some Chinook and Rainbow Trout, and keep going all summer long. While they can always be found in the deep waters, the Chinook Salmon and Brown Trout move in closer to shore around Lake August / Early September. That said, Kenosha’s fleet of experienced charter captains can help you catch a prize anytime of the year. With a greyhound track, water park, hiking and biking trails, and the Renaissance fair within a short drive, Kenosha offers more than your usual assortment of off-the-water entertainments. Add in the outlet malls, specialty boutiques, and antique shops and you have a destination that’s fun for the entire family. Visitors can stay at one of various hotels, motels, or resorts, and dine at restaurants serving steak & seafood, diner food, Italian, and even sushi for adventurous tastes.
