Whether you are in town for the day or extending your trip through the weekend to fit in more fun, we welcome you to explore all that Pleasant Prairie has to offer! Our Midwestern Village offers a wide range of sights and activities for everyone.
A family trip, a romantic escape, a girls’ or guys’ weekend getaway: whether you’re looking for romance or relaxation, Pleasant Prairie has something for you.
The Great Outdoors
A big fan of the outdoors? Lake Andrea offers 110 acres of wet fun and kayaking. Don’t worry if you packed light on this trip. Froggy’s Landing Boat Rental can get you out on the water. Anglers ready for the open waters can check out Kenosha charters to fish on Lake Michigan. And if land is more your style, don’t pass up the opportunity to hike the beloved sand dunes, right on the shores of mighty Lake Michigan.
No getaway is complete without some shopping. Lucky for you, we are home to the Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets, an outdoor mall with over 90 stores. You’ll find your favorite brands, like kate spade new york, Levi’s, Nike, and The North Face, at unbelievable prices. Don’t forget to bring something home to share. The Shoppes at Prairie Ridge can help you with that too! Check out one of their specialty shops like Nothing Bundt Cakes and pick up one of 10 delicious flavors for your coworkers or friends back home.
Bring the Kids
Kids who love the outdoors will have a great time exploring Prairie Springs Park, or taking a leisurely bike ride on the Kenosha County Bike Trail. The whole family can reach for the sky with the help of Bristol’s outdoor ropes course, Boundless Adventures. Once you’ve all worked up an appetite, stop by the Shoppes at Prairie Ridge where you’ll find a wide variety of dining options; something even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy!
If you’re craving some sports action, the RecPlex is the place to be. Pick up a day pass to enjoy the vast athletic center, an indoor waterpark, Olympic-sized swimming pool, and dual NHL-sized skating rink. Passes are also available for Lake Andrea Beach for more outdoor fun in the summertime!
There’s no reason to leave Fido at home. Stay at our exclusive pet-friendly hotel, La Quinta, and let man’s best friend in on the fun. Make new furry friends at the Ingram Park dog park with separate sections for large and small dogs. When it’s time for a walk, there’s the Donald Hackbarth Trail and Prairie Farms Trail, as well as the paved path around Lake Andrea. For that 4-legged friend who earned a special treat, you’ll need to visit Bentley’s Pet Stuff, a unique pet boutique Lassie will love.
If you’re looking to add a creative spark to your evening, then pull up an easel at Pinot’s Palette. This paint and sip studio provides everything you need to create your own work of art in a fun setting. But don’t let the creativity stop there! Next door is the Fred Astaire Dance Studio which offers classes in everything from salsa and two-step to the tango and is sure to sweep you off your feet.
Enjoy Bird Watching
Grab your binoculars, birders! This is a happy place for nature lovers. We are home to Prairie Springs Park with more than 900 acres of greenery open to the public year-round. Chiwaukee Prairie, a rare example of an untouched Midwestern landscape that has received international acclaim, also provides a lovely background for birdwatching. The Des Plaines River and surrounding wetlands can yield views of thousands of migratory birds during spring and summer.
Renaissance Faire Weekend
As the official hotels of the Bristol Renaissance Faire, both the DoubleTree by Hilton and Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott offer EXCLUSIVE packages that include Faire tickets, transportation, and more. With all of the shows and unique artisans, you’ll want to take the time to enjoy it at your own pace. Make a weekend of it and relax in Pleasant Prairie for the evening. Enjoy dining at one of the Village’s many restaurants and do it all over again the next day.
