This summer in Kenosha is looking a little different than last year.
With the effects of the coronavirus still being felt across the state and country, many of the normal activities you would want to do with your kids are now closed. This gives you limited things to do and you might be already running out of ideas.
Don’t worry, we feel your pain! Here are some of the activities we have been doing with our kids to keep them moving, entertained, and trying new things here in Kenosha!

With many indoor activities closed, you might be looking for something new to try outside. What better outdoor activity than golf?!
Now many of you have probably never golfed in your life, but that’s ok! Starting off by hitting one of our local driving ranges will allow both you and your child to learn a little bit about the game without the pressure of having to step onto a full-on course.
A Great place to learn in Kenosha is George Capoun Golf Academy – A third-generation family-owned and run mom and pop style golf range with a miniature golf course that will make you feel very at home!
Explore the great outdoors in new ways!
Did you know that the City of Kenosha currently has 70 park and conservation sites throughout the City on approximately 1,000 acres of land? That is a lot to explore!
A fun idea for you and your kids would be to explore them by geocaching! Geocaching is basically a nationwide treasure hunt where people hide different “treasures” across different parks. Your goal is to find these treasures, mark it as “found” and follow the instructions within it. Some treasures want you to add your piece to the treasure box, others want you to just leave it where you found it without changing it. Just know that the geocaching game is 100% honor based and built buy a community of people looking to get families like yours outside and exploring.

The beaches are still there!
Even the most experienced Kenoshains forget about our incredible beaches! Planning a day at the beach to swim, build sandcastles, and soak up some sun could be exactly what your family needs! We believe in beach days so much, that we even developed a blog post with our top tips for planning a day at the beach! As long as you make sure to place your towel at least 6 feet away from the next family and be conscious of other people’s space it is still a safe and fun activity for everyone!
So what do you think? Are you excited to get out and explore your own city a little bit more? What are your favorite activities that we didn’t talk about?
We hope you continue to have a fun and safe summer!
