Things to Do in Pleasant Prairie
LOCATED IN THE HEART OF KENOSHA COUNTY, WISCONSIN
Nestled along the coast of Lake Michigan and I-94 is Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. This friendly village community is located in the heart of Kenosha County, midway between Milwaukee and Chicago, offering many fun things to do with kids and unique experiences for all types of travelers.
For one-of-a-kind finds and special values on major brands, Pleasant Prairie has lots of opportunities for shopping, whatever your style. Check out local shops and galleries, restaurants, and special interest stores at the Shoppes at Prairie Ridge. For a marathon of retail bliss, spend a day or two exploring the many factory and outlet stores at Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets and enjoy up to 65% off retail prices.
If your idea of cardio goes beyond mall walking, Pleasant Prairie is a true sports and fitness destination. The state-of-the-art RecPlex is the largest recreation facility in America, with an indoor pool and water park, suspended running track, ice rinks, ball fields, fitness rooms, and friendly staff always willing to help.
If you like fresh air and moving under open skies, you’ll find outdoor activities aplenty at Pleasant Prairie. Adjacent to the RecPlex is Lake Andrea, which is busy with beachgoers, swimmers, and watersports enthusiasts in the summer season as well as fishing year round. Lake Andrea is part of Prairie Springs Park, one of the many parks and gardens in the village. Also, cyclists, runners, and walkers can test their speed or enjoy a leisurely journey along local trails. Bring your clubs ― or rent some on site ― for a round or two at the Big Oaks Golf Course with its three 9-hole courses, a rippling creek, and sweeping views. Lovers of nature should make plans to visit Chiwaukee Prairie, a protected 400-acre stretch of undeveloped Wisconsin prairie along Lake Michigan. Chiwaukee Prairie invites visitors to hike and explore while serving as a reminder of the historical wilds of Wisconsin before settlement by pioneers moving west.
