Recently a friend and I decided to visit the new Downtown restaurant Slip 56. I had heard quiet rumblings through my friends group that this place was an excellent addition to our Downtown. My first impression when I pulled up was how cheery it was with it’s red and turquoise outdoor seating area.

We love our children, more than life itself. But sometimes we need some time away. Why not make this Mother’s Day weekend one where you celebrate your partner as much as you celebrate your family? Find someone kind enough to take the kids Friday and Saturday night and get them early Sunday, refreshed and excited to be together. There’s no need to travel a couple of hours and stay in a hotel. Kenosha has as much, if not more, to do as popular destinations across the state. So forget your chores and errands, and spend a few days enjoying all there is to offer in your own backyard.

While there are many ways to stay active in Kenosha, (especially now that the weather is finally getting tolerable) in the late winter and early spring months, you’ll find many people preparing for the Wisconsin Marathon. The race - celebrating its 10th anniversary this year - is always held on the first Saturday of May. Whether you are a longtime runner, are preparing for your first race or are cheering on a loved one, the Wisconsin Marathon is a fantastic way to see the sights of Downtown Kenosha - all while burning calories! From the packet pickup at one of my favorite spots - the Kenosha Public Museum - to the start at Celebration Place in HarborPark, the marathon (as well as the 5K and half marathon) offers runners a taste of all that Downtown has to offer. (Plus, the thought of a double serving of Scoop’s ice cream after finishing does make me run faster)! We are fortunate to have so many spectators and volunteers participating in the marathon each year. The cheers, homemade signs and shouts of encouragement by people lining the downtown streets, along with volunteers staffing much-needed water stops, are such an important part of the race. They represent Kenosha so well.
