On the cover:

Kenosha County is one of the lucky few communities to border Lake Michigan, so it’s no wonder so many people flock to our shore to enjoy this Great Lake. Nearly 90 percent of our shoreline is publicly accessible, offering an opportunity to try your hand at popular “silent sports” like kayaking, wind surfing and paddle boarding. Also enjoy an array of lakefront parks and beaches, shore and charter fishing, power boating and a lakefront promenade perfectly positioned for a walk, run or bike ride with breathtaking views.

Stretching westward beyond the fast lane of

Chicago

OUR CITY, VILLAGES ... PHOTO BY TIMM BUNDIES

From bike races to outdoor concerts and museums to explore, Kenosha offers something for everyone. Nestled along the shores of Lake Michigan, with miles of beaches and lakefront parks, visitors can enjoy picnics, kite flying and even a dip in the cool waters of the lake. Paths along the lake are perfect for walking, biking or skating. You will find picturesque public gardens and fountains, two historic lighthouses, historical reenactments and many other familyoriented festivals to enjoy. During your visit check out Kenosha museums, including the Kenosha History Center, Dinosaur Discovery Museum, Kenosha Public Museum and the Midwest’s only Civil War Museum. The Dinosaur Discovery Museum, in the historic Civic Center district, features dramatic life-size dinosaur replica casts, interactive exhibits and a paleontology lab. Of course, you will want to visit the Kenosha Public Museum and see the mammoths excavated in Kenosha County, as well as wonderful temporary exhibits. Kenosha’s latest addition to its museum campus is the Civil War Museum which opened in 2008. Through state of the art technology, dioramas and interactive exhibits, visitors travel back in history to the social, political and economic influences that contributed to the Civil War. Travel between the museums is easy when you hop aboard one of seven vintage electric streetcars. Finally, in between visits to these amazing attractions, take in art fairs, farmers markets, charter fishing, golf and fine dining. There is no shortage of wonderful things to see and do in Kenosha. We look forward to seeing you. Keith G. Bosman Mayor

You’re always welcome in the Village of Pleasant Prairie. Whether you’re looking for a daytrip destination or a new place to call home, you’ll find a warm and welcoming community with some very special amenities. From the first moment you arrive, you’ll find a top notch, outdoor shopping experience at Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets. Just down the road, nestled inside of a 930-acre park with inviting nature trails, a spring-fed lake and sandy beach, you’ll encounter RecPlex. RecPlex is a world-class fitness, sport and lifestyle center. Each year, thousands of visitors venture to RecPlex and Prairie Springs Park for the Pleasant Prairie and Danskin Triathlons, for competitive swimming, hockey and figure skating events, or to simply make a day of indoor swimming, ice skating and fieldhouse play. During warmer weather, guests here enjoy wind surfing, boating, playing on our sandy beach, and other summer events that occur in the park. Fine art lovers will enjoy a trip to the Seebeck Gallery to browse their diverse collection of fine art and custom crafts from local, regional and national artists. Nature lovers will revel in the peaceful beauty of the Chiwaukee Prairie and the shores of Lake Michigan. Chiwaukee Prairie is a National Natural Landmark near the lakeshore and is home to more than 400 native plant species and other wildlife. While here, many visitors also satisfy their sweet tooth with a tour and treats at the Pleasant Prairie Jelly Belly Center. Pleasant Prairie is a growing community that strives to balance new growth with a special respect for the past and the natural gifts that define the area. All of us here in the Village invite you for a visit to experience Pleasant Prairie living for yourself and to learn why Pleasant Prairie is a great place to live, work and play. You can learn more about us online at PleasantPrairieOnline.com. Welcome! John P. Steinbrink Village President

This enchanting festival offers you a unique chance to step back 400 years in time and walk straight into the streets of a 29-acre 16th Century Elizabethan village. Bristol is also horse country. Increasingly known as one of the region’s most popular equestrian communities, Bristol is home to many horse farms competition facilities, and equestrian disciplines. A relaxing country drive reveals stunning horse farms and lovely equestrian estates. Riders from all over the region come to Bristol to participate in horse sports, or just “horse around.” The Village of Bristol ... the ideal place to live and visit ... naturally! Mike Farrell Village President Organized in 1842, the Town of Wheatland, located on the western end of Kenosha County is 24 square miles in size and includes the unincorporated communities of New Munster, Slades Corners, Wheatland, Powers Lake and Lily Lake and many smaller subdivisions. Our area’s two lakes, Lily Lake and Powers Lake, offer swimming, boating and fishing opportunities. The scenic Fox River is a landmark in our community, traveling in a north-south direction through the eastern part of the town. Wheatland is also home to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources New Munster Wildlife Area, which encompasses 1,048 acres and permits seasonal hunting. Camp Oh-DaKo-Ta, owned by the Boy Scouts of America, and located on the western edge of the town, has enabled several generations of Boy Scouts to participate in camping and outdoor activities. The Seno Woodland Education Center, a 131acre forestry learning center also located in the western part of the town, is dedicated to forestry education and research. Owned and managed by the WWOA Foundation, Inc., there are many nature programs offered. Our farming community is gradually evolving into a residential community. We welcome visitors and new residents! William M. Glembocki Town Chairperson

Courtesy of Kenosha County

The Kenosha Area is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts and whether you like to bike, hike, run, walk, ski or ATV, we’ve got a trail for you! An array of city and county parks, expansive nature areas and Lake Michigan shoreline offer a four-season adventure with an ever-changing landscape for you to enjoy.

From Lakeside... Cyclists, runners and in-line skaters appreciate the 10.2 mile Pike Bike Trail for its up-close Lake Michigan views. This north-south trail runs along many points of interest and off-trail activities, including three National Register Historic Districts, two historic lighthouses, five museums, the Kenosha Sculpture Walk, Downtown Kenosha and Poerio Nature Center among others. A combination of on-street bike lanes and paved off-street trails, the Pike Bike Trail follows a path primarily along the Lake Michigan shoreline, but also jogs westward at points to connect with the Kenosha County Bike Trail System.

To Countryside... If rural roads and rolling countryside are more your cycling style, the Kenosha County Bike Trail offers you a system of trails on rural county roads and several miles of off-

Kenosha County Bike Trail.

road bike trails. Cyclists enjoy navigating the county’s beautiful, natural landscape of farms, lakes, parks and nature areas. A recent addition to this system now features an off-road trail through the sprawling Petrifying Springs Park and links up with the Pike Bike Trail running along the Lake Michigan shore. The Kenosha County Bike trails feature on-road signage defining the trail and reminds drivers and cyclists alike that roadways here are shared by all.

And Off the Beaten Path...

Home to one of Wisconsin’s natural hardwood forests, Petrifying Springs Park is comprised of 360 acres, offering miles of scenic hiking, cross country ski and snowshoeing trails in a pristine, tranquil setting. Bristol Woods Park is a 200-acre nature area containing upland forest, wetlands, oak savanna remnants and prairies along its six distinct trails.

DOWNTOWN

Harborside Common Grounds.

DESTINATION: DOWNTOWN

I

It’s been said that a Downtown is the “heart” of a community — an inviting and friendly gathering place that draws people to hang out and enjoy life. Downtown Kenosha is no exception. Just steps away from the Lake Michigan shore, this walkable neighborhood is a hub of dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities where business owners take pride in providing friendly, personable service. It’s also surrounded by favorite attractions such as museums, lighthouses, beaches and a nostalgic electric streetcar line, offering a bevy of things to see and do year-round.

K e n o s h a

Downtown’s dining and nightlife options are equally impressive with a wide array of choices from refined to casual. Choose from diners and bistros, coffee shops and bakeries, brewpubs and burger joints — plus candy, ice cream and gourmet popcorn shops just waiting to tempt your sweet tooth. Whether breakfast, lunch, dinner or the inevitable snack in between, you’ll never go hungry in Downtown Kenosha! The arts scene in Downtown Kenosha is a big part of its personality and is evident in the many galleries, exhibits and performances throughout the neighborhood. Enjoy live theater at a historic opera house, attend a symphony, catch an outdoor concert along the lake or captivate the imagination at one of many art exhibits throughout the year. Many Downtown businesses also incorporate the arts into their own shops or restaurants, regularly featuring live music and other artistic performances.

Embellished Heart. 2 0 1 3

Shopping in Downtown Kenosha is as unique as it gets with distinctive shops, boutiques and galleries offering everything from original art, antiques and jewelry to comic books, classic toys and fashion for the entire family. It’s a shopping destination that leaves the big box stores behind in favor of one-of-a-kind souvenirs, gifts and personal necessities that put the “specialty” back in shopping.

Kenosha

A Daring Dining Scene? C

Contrary to popular belief, a Garbage Plate does not involve dumpster diving, and Squid Salad is not as scary as it may sound. If discovering new foods and original restaurants when you travel sounds appealing, then the Kenosha Area is where to go for some creative culinary experiences!

named burgers on the menu, this one is not for the faint of heart. It’s packed with Velveeta cheese and bacon, then deep fried in a beer batter coating. You’ll also find a colossal menu of home-made mac-n-cheese combinations that tickle your taste buds and sense of humor too.

Be daring and try the Squid Salad at Soon’s Sushi Café. Soon’s has been voted BEST SUSHI in southeastern Wisconsin three years running. A bed of carrots and Korean radish topped with marinated raw squid offer intense flavor and delightful texture. Even cautious diners who are willing to try something new are pleasantly surprised with this dish.

The historic Franks Diner is famous for their appearance on Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” and their house specialty — the Garbage Plate. It’s quite possible that the phrase “everything but the kitchen sink” originated when the first Garbage Plate was made. This gargantuan concoction boasts five eggs, hash browns, green pepper, onion, and any combination of meats, cheeses, and vegetables you dare to take on. It’s no wonder there’s a Garbage Plate challenge — clean your plate and earn some serious bragging rights!

Only at Captain Mike’s Beer & Burger Bar can you find a gourmet burger named the Bobandi. Just one of many brazenly-

Kenosha’s Premier Waterfront Bar and Grill

You need not fly to Bavaria for authentic Schweine Haxe. House of Gerhard offers this pork shank and sauerkraut masterpiece, along with other classic German dishes six days a week right here in Kenosha. They even serve up liver pâté, fresh baked breads and homemade soups to complement their traditional Deutschland flavors. And if you’re searching for someplace quirky or “twisted” to step up your dining game, Twisted Cuisine is certain to be a unique experience. Tucan Sam has nothing on Fruitloop Cheesecake, a whacky dessert creation found only at Twisted. Homemade cheesecake is coated in crushed cereal and deep fried to perfection. The warm, crisp exterior combined with a slightly cooler, smooth cheesecake center is the perfect combination of texture for this one-of-akind dessert. Count on Twisted to change its menu three times a year, so there’s always a new dining adventure just around the corner!
