January 2023
This year, bring your family (including your dog!), your bike, your fishing poles, your golf clubs, and your appetite for a memorable Midwest road trip to Kenosha, Wisconsin. We are a Wisconsin Harbor Town, an urban downtown, and a rural countryside in one destination in the far southeast corner of the state.
You’ll want to refer to our brand new 104-page 2023 Official Kenosha Area Visitors Guide as a resource when planning your Kenosha getaway! This is the 36th edition of the publication, which features businesses that are locally owned and operated, unique to the Kenosha Area, and/or of interest to visitors. You can order a copy to be mailed to your house. It’s also available online as a digital Visitors Guide. View/Order HERE>
Join us February 4 for a fun winter event in Downtown Kenosha: Snow Daze. Look for lots of fun photo opportunities, with more than 40 ice sculptures on display in Veterans Memorial Park and in front of downtown businesses. The ice sculptures have a variety of shapes, sizes, and themes. Watch as ice artists from Art Below Zero in Franksville create a one-of-a-kind ice sculpture. Details HERE>
The nine-day celebration of our community's delicious dining scene takes place February 18-26. Let’s all show some LOVE to our locally owned restaurants, pubs, and food shops! Dozens of places will be participating – with each one creating their own special menu. Please consider making a donation to Shalom Center, The Sharing Center, or the Kenosha County Food Bank, which are the official nonprofit partners of Kenosha Restaurant Week. We’ll be posting the list of participants and menus HERE soon!
While the snowfall totals have been low so far this winter in Kenosha, there is always snow at Wilmot Mountain for downhill skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing! Enjoy 120 acres of snowy fun! Equipment rentals, a repair shop, and a retail shop are available on-site. Food options there include Walt's Tavern, which offers Beers, Brats, Bloodys, and Tots. Winter in the Kenosha Area also means ice skating at Veterans Memorial Park (with free ice skate rentals) and much more fun!
