Establishments in Downtown Kenosha
We will not have any food items available at the ending location other than our rest stop snack items so you may want to go get something to eat or bring some food or drinks with you in your personal bag to eat after you arrive. Our ending location in Kenosha is very close to downtown Kenosha and there will be TONS of places for you to get some food or drinks at local establishments while you are waiting for our return transportation service from Kenosha.

   
 

Swimming

If you would like to cool off and refresh yourself after the ride before you're even home, you can go swimming directly at our ending location! Everyone can enjoy swimming, sunning, or just plain relaxing along the shores of Lake Michigan. Admission to the beach is free and the beach is not staffed with lifeguards. Make sure to bring your beach towel and sunscreen!

Parking

Kenosha Area Transit
(262) 653-4287

There is limited overnight parking available in the parking lot adjacent to the Kenosha Metra Station (lot #23). You can park anywhere in the lot - there are no specific numbers or locations of daily parking spaces.

The price for a daily parking pass in Kenosha is $5.00 per day. There is also a 3 day pass available for $15.00. The parking passes can be purchased by cash, credit, or debit cards at the parking meters at the lot.

For multiple days parking, purchase one pass for each day and place ALL the passes on your dashboard. Every pass will be dated for the date purchased. Unfortunately the passes expire at midnight so you will need to purchase two daily passes to park in the lot overnight.
