What a surprise for me as I was walking along the Promenade by Lake Michigan and an electric streetcar passed by! I had been wondering about the tracks that I had seen...I discovered they there are five restored electric streetcars that travel a two-mile loop to provide a scenic tour of the Lake Michigan shoreline.
These streetcars include Harbor Park, two historic districts, downtown business district, and the METRA train station. STOPS INCLUDE:
McCarthy Transit Center
This Light rail transit [LRT] has been operating since 2000. These cars are Art Deco-era in design, and they begin at Kenosha's METRA rail station. "The Streetcars run in the grassy boulevard median of 56th Street, and then they are routed east through the Civic Center; then they go past the 6th Avenue retail district, the new Harborpark neighborhood, and Southport Marina; finally they terminate at Celebration Park adjacent to Lake Michigan. In the opposite direction, cars operate between Harborwalk Park and 54th Street, past the Museum Complex, the north side of Harborpark Condominiums, Navy Park, City Hall, and Kenosha Transit's new downtown Transit Center."
The really excellent thing about this transportation system is that it helps both the Kenosha residents and the Kenosha visitors...it includes recreation facilities, the METRA regional rail station, the municipal buildings, and the downtown retail area. I think it is a tremendously wonderful system, and it is so affordable [25 cents for a two-mile loop!]

It says it is a Castle it says it is full of Cheese. But it basically a gift shop, and not a cheese emporuim.
Unique Suggestions: well you like it... look around. Maybe you will find a cheese or summer sausage you want to take home. It is a low end "cheese" place.
Fun Alternatives: Go to the farmers Markets during the summer. Get some fresh locally made products.
