it's cabin time™ in Kenosha
Kenosha, Wisconsin is a picturesque lakeside town and a perfect place to relax in an authentic Wisconsin Cabin. Located on Lake Michigan, Kenosha has a historic downtown filled with museums and art, plenty of water recreation activities, parks, golf, drinking and dining, and more!
The best way to explore downtown? Ride the restored, electric streetcars! These streetcars pay homage to the mode of transportation popular in Kenosha in 1903—the electric rail. Some of the streetcars are authentic. The route travels along the shore of Lake Michigan, through several beautiful parks, and right into downtown.
Get a bite to eat at one of the many excellent restaurants downtown, or pick up fresh produce before heading back to your Kenosha cabin at the Kenosha Harbor Market. The Kenosha Harbor Market is an open-air, European-style market home to 150 vendors selling foods, flowers, and other homemade goods.
If you’re looking for more local produce, Jerry Smith Produce and Pumpkin Farm is a must-visit! Depending on the season, you can pick your own fruits and vegetables to enjoy while relaxing at your Wisconsin vacation rental. If you’re a history buff, there is plenty to discover and learn about this Wisconsin town.
The Southport Light Station Museum always makes the top of our list. The museum is a restored lightkeeper’s residence and lighthouse. Visitors learn about the history of Kenosha’s harbor and can view the town and lake from the top of the 55-foot tall lighthouse.
Right next door to the Southport Light Station Museum is the Kenosha History Center. This free museum has three exhibits tracing the history of settlement, business, and success in Kenosha. If you’d like to learn more about the natural history of Kenosha and Wisconsin, the Kenosha Public Museum is the place to be. This museum has over 80 million collections, including fine arts, world cultures, zoology, geology, and more.
Kenosha’s proximity to Lake Michigan means plenty of actives on the water, including sailing Lake Michigan with Tall Ship Red Witch, swimming, paddle boarding, or enjoying the beaches. If you’re in the mood for a hike, you’re in the right place. Kenosha is home to a great trail network at Petrifying Springs Park and Biergarten. Petrifying Springs Park also has an 18-hole golf course and many tranquil picnic areas.
