Racine’s North Beach named to Parents.com tip 10 list of best beaches for families.
Let’s take a look and see why… North Beach Park is a 50 acre shoreline haven on the shore of Lake Michigan in Racine, WI on Kewaunee Street. It has been certified as a Blue Wave Beach by the Clean Beaches Council since 2004. The sand there is groomed daily. What a way to welcome visitors! North Beach offers a bath house, bike/walking path, a historical exhibit, nature center, restrooms and a shelter. If it is too cold to swim, let the kids play at the Kid’s Cove Pirate-boat themed playground right on the beach- or take a walk to the unique lakefront Racine Zoo just a few blocks away.
At the beach, there’s also the North Beach Oasis which offers something for everyone: live music, food, volleyball courts, wireless, and a beach wheelchair free to use on a first come first serve basis. Pack a picnic lunch or munch on pizza & snacks, beer or soda from the Oasis. For pictures of the North Beach Oasis and events held there at the beach, please see the North Beach Oasis website.
North Beach is one of many attractions in Racine. Racine’s beautiful Harbor Park and Marina is just south of the Beach, plus Frank Lloyd Wright architecture and the lakefront zoo are a few other places that make Racine special.
