Racine, Kenosha, and Lake Geneva are all lakefront cities in Southeast Wisconsin that offer residents a wealth of outdoors activities, and easy access to Milwaukee and Chicago.
Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Racine has the largest Danish immigrant population in North America, outside of Greenland. The result is that Racine is a capital of Danish pastries, particularly the kringle. Larsen’s Bakery and O&H Bertrand Bakery are two of the Danish bakeries that put Racine on the culinary map. In the hot summer months, Racine’s harbor and North Beach area are popular spots for swimming, fishing, windsurfing, and boating. During the winter, the area’s many snowmobile trails are a favorite activity.
Kenosha is oft-ranked as one of the best midsize cities for families in the United States, because of its good schools and stable economy. Kenosha is known as a commuter town, but Kenosha has a fair share of its own business, including many in the “clean tech” green energy sector. Kenosha’s historic Washington Park Velodrome hosts the annual Food Folks and Spokes bike race, and the city is also known for its many diners, particuarly Frank’s Diner and The Coffee Pot.
Lake Geneva is the small-city jewel of freshwater Geneva Lake, and is one of the Midwest’s most fashionable vacation spots. It is centrally located between Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago, and residents from all three cities flock to Lake Geneva during the summer. During the frozen winter months, Lake Geneva transforms into the iceboat capital of the world. Legend has it that Guns N’ Roses’ Paradise City is a tribute to Lake Geneva, where lead singer Axl Rose once owned property.
