Fun for all in Kenosha

So, as I was thinking back to all the winter trips we've taken that have included indoor water parks and an amusement rides or outdoor winter fun, another place I thought of that I've been to at all seasons of the year is Kenosha, Wisconsin.

While the summer months are the ideal time to visit when it's more practical to enjoy the lakefront and the nearby Bristol Renaissance Faire is in full swing, there are several indoor attractions to enjoy. If you like to shop, if you like dinosaurs, if you like history or if you like jelly beans, you're in luck. With several museums, there's plenty to occupy young and old.

If you're a foodie, there's also much to delight you. Some favorites of mine are the Brat Stop, Frank's Diner and House of Gerhard. And one of the coolest attractions is these awesome streetcars that wind around the lakefront and run year round. For more info, visit There's a listing on the site of 101 things to do for under $10. Kenosha is a very affordable place to visit with many attractions that are free.
