Kenosha County

Kenosha County is a county in Southeast Wisconsin and home to Wisconsin's fourth largest city, Kenosha.


Kenosha County has two primary regions separated by Interstate 94: the developed eastern portion of the County in and around the City of Kenosha and the mostly rural western area. The urbanized area is relatively similar to most other rust belt areas and is often the portion of the County considered to be possibly part of Chicagoland.


Get around

Except within the City of Kenosha, travel in the area is mostly done via car. Major routes within the County include the following:

The City of Kenosha offers mass transportation in and around the City including a bus system and limited service streetcars.

Due to the high concentration of lakes in the area, the road system lacks the grid pattern found commonly in the area. Therefore, it is easy for visitors to become lost, especially in the western portions of the County.
