Now I was shocked to find out that it is in fact possible to reach the Atlantic Ocean from Lake Michigan. I just always assumed with it being a 1000 miles away from the sea that it was probably land locked. But after discovering that cargo ships could in fact travel from Kenosha Wisconsin all the way to SOUTH AFRICA, the dots of Kenosha’s history all connect together!
For me, sometimes it’s the silliest of things that attract me to a destination. For example, I went to Jamaica to go on a bobsleigh track in a rainforest. I signed up for the Kenosha pre conference trip at the Women in Travel Summit, purely because I wanted to go on a tour of the Jelly Belly Warehouse. Little did I realise, that Kenosha would steal my heart, I was just about ready to pack up and move into one of the houses along 1st Avenue, that overlook the waters of Lake Michigan.
