Our Lake Michigan shoreline is one of our most popular features, with nearly 90 percent publicly accessible via parks, beaches, festival places and a miles-long promenade. The lakeshore also boasts five one-of-a-kind museums, an authentic electric streetcar system, two historic lighthouses, and the popular Kenosha HarborMarket. A vibrant Downtown district full of shopping, dining and the arts is ideally located just steps from the lakeshore and makes for a truly special visit.

From the article:
The 66-year-old Kenosha native has acquired the Internet domain Kenosha.com from an Arizona man, who recently announced he owned it and was willing to sell it for $75,000. Gourley said he read about the domain in a recent Kenosha News article and immediately had to have it. “I asked him, ‘How fast can I get it?’” Gourley said.
Congrats to Fred and Jim.
