it's cabin time™ in Pleasant Prairie
Pleasant Prairie, WI is located on the Southwestern shoreline of Lake Michigan. It is about 37 miles south of Milwaukee and 57 miles North of Chicago. A stay in a Pleasant Prairie cabin rental is a memory you won’t soon forget! Pleasant Praire is home to a plethora of outdoor actives and recreation.
We recommend that visitors spend a day exploring the Chiwaukee Prairie. The Chiwaukee Prairie is one of the largest prairie complexes in Wisconsin. It is made up of 485 coastal acres located right on the coast of Lake Michigan. The coastal wetlands and sand dunes are home to many animals and plants. More than 400 specifies of plants can be found in the prairie and 75 species of birds, including sandhill cranes.
The prairie is also home to animals like red foxes, woodchucks, and many reptiles and amphibians. Take the two-mile trail to explore the Kenosha dunes at the northern side of the prairie.
Feeling like working up a sweat before spending the evening relaxing at your Pleasant Prairie cabin? Residents and visitors alike enjoy working out and playing in Pleasant Prairie’s RecPlec. This 300,000 sq. ft. municipal recreational facility is the largest in the US. It has something for everyone, including two NHL-sized hockey rinks, a 50-meter lap pool, a water park, a suspended track, fields, and more.
The RecPlec is located in Prairie Springs Park next to Lake Andrea. Enjoy 121 acres of pure fun at Lake Andrea! Boating, beaching, swimming, and fishing are popular summer actives. Rent boats, kayaks, paddleboards, canoes, etc. from Froggy’s Landing Boat Rentals.
Looking for a different kind of thrill? Just 15 miles away from your Pleasant Prairie accommodations is Six Flags Great America. Their claim to fame? The Maxx Force. This coaster has the tallest double inversion, fastest launch time, and inversion of any coaster!
If it is hot, you can also head to the adjacent water park, Hurricane Harbor to cool off. Be sure to check the event calendar, but if you are visiting during the summer months, don’t miss out on the Bristol Renaissance Faire! This happens every weekend over the summer and includes juggling, jousting, sword fighting, drool-worthy food, shopping, and more.
