WHY DOWNTOWN KENOSHA?

old-logoHistorical downtown Kenosha, has tangible fixed assets that will endure the test of time. Attributes such as; Lake Michigan, with a new $30 Million boat harbor, 2 historical Lighthouses, long scenic piers, fishing charters and a thriving boating community. Unique features that create a special place! The historic streetcar system, which takes over 65,000 riders per year thru-out the downtown, and connects the lakefront to the Metra rail line. The metra Station serves Chicago and the north shore of Illinois. The small, relatively condensed downtown has a rich & colorful history. It is home to such well known firms as; Jockey International, Snap-On, Uline, and the birthplace of Simmons Mattress, American Motors, and many others. Clovis Point has worked aggressively over the last 18 years, to save unique historical buildings from the wrecking ball, and bring them back to life, so hopefully they will endure for many generations to come.

Today’s Downtown Kenosha, is the recipient of the growing trend of Urbanization, with baby boomers returning to their downtown roots, and millennials desire for walk ability and participative things to do! The historic downtown boast unique shopping boutiques, micro breweries, a variety of tasty restaurants, lively cafe’s, live community theatre, musical venues, warm coffee houses, etc. Most downtown businesses are owner operated.
The lakefront setting is ideal for a wide variety of activities and events. Activities such as; Wisconsin Marathon, Taste of Wisconsin, (which drew over 41,000 participants), Easter Hopp, Ice sculpture festivals, Grill games, Restaurant week, multiple car shows, and yes, even, Cheese-A-Palooza! (It is Wisconsin after all!) These activities, along with the four museums, and renowned historical streetcar, attract visitors from around the globe. In fact, tourism in the Kenosha County accounted for $228 Million in spending in 2018!
