Fun on the lake
It’s hard to discuss outdoor recreation without mentioning Kenosha County’s big neighbor to the east, Lake Michigan. Eleven miles of shoreline border the county and provide easy access to sailing, fishing, swimming, boating – and so much more – on the Great Lake.
We like to bike
Throughout Kenosha County, you’ll see bike lanes, bike trails, and biking events. It has made bicycling a priority by ensuring most new roads have room for bikers, creating mountain bike trails in Silver Lake, installing bike racks in the downtown area and taking care of the oldest velodrome in the country – which happens to be right here in Kenosha County.Kenosha County Bike Trails

For the highly active

We’re swimming in lakes

Everything but mountain climbing
