You Can Afford It
Even though it’s right off Lake Michigan, Kenosha is still below the national average when it comes to cost of living. While the median cost of a home in the U.S. is $216,200, the median cost of a home in Kenosha is less than two-thirds the cost of that at $142,000. The average 1 bedroom in America runs at $930 while the average 1 bedroom in Kenosha runs at just $680. And don’t forget, no heavy traffic in small cities with the exception of big events. This will do wonders for your commute to the hospital on work days.
Kenosha scores big with two gorgeous beaches within city limits. First, there’s Simmons Island beach where you can find a boardwalk, paved bike trail, playground, and an open-air picnic pavilion. The public lake beach is also home to Southport Light Station Museum (with the Southport Lighthouse), along with the Kenosha History Center and Kenosha Lighthouse Studio.
Then there’s Eichelman Park and Beach, adjacent to Wolfenbuttel Park. It has a walking trail, biking trail, and playground. And over at Wolfenbuttel you can find a gorgeous flower garden and gazebo with a Lake Michigan backdrop, a popular wedding spot with the locals.
Close to Major Cities
Who wouldn’t enjoy the benefits of small town prices with big city access? Kenosha is just over an hour away from Chicago, and only 45 minutes from Milwaukee. For sports fans, this is a dream. You can keep up with live games in the Windy City with the Blackhawks, Cubs, White Sox, Bears, and the Bulls. Then on the Milwaukee side, you have the Brewers and the Bucks. If you so happen to be a Packers fan, Green Bay is also within driving distance (2.5 hours).
And let’s not forget, being within a small radius of these cities means you have the magic key to Lollapalooza, Summerfest, and all the music festivals and venues, all the film and food festivals, and all the sweet brew Milwaukee has to offer. You’ll also be loaded with annual events like the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival in Chicago.
