One of the best locations within the boundaries of Kenosha, Wisconsin is the many beach recreational areas. Local residents and visitors alike can pack up the kids and enjoy an afternoon of sun and surf along Lake Michigan. The five beach options include Alford Park, Southport Park, Simmons Island, Pennoyer Park and Eichelman Beach. Mom and dad should be prepared, as these beaches are not staffed with lifeguards. If you prefer to be on the water rather than in it, the Southport Marina offers full service boat slips as well as shower, laundry and restroom facilities. A farmer's market is hosted in Kenosha, with locations throughout the city. The market is available starting in June and runs through November. An educational trip could be made to the Kenosha Public Museum. This collection, featuring more than 70,000 pieces, offers a wide spectrum of exhibits from living things to fine arts and Native American treasures.1

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Kenosha, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Kenosha may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Kenosha public health department.
