Cool Down, Downtown!

Cool Down, Downtown!

As summer heats up, everyone looks for ways to stay cool. Maybe that means a day at Simmons Island Beach, an afternoon stroll through the HarborPark Splash Pad, or an evening spent sitting in the gardens at Wolfenbuttel Park enjoying the breeze off Lake Michigan. These are all lovely choices available to you in Downtown Kenosha.


There are some tasty treats that offer instant gratification too! Here are a few of the coolest treats, drinks, and snacks available downtown to help make your summer extra fun and chill.

The Sampler at Sandy’s Popper

Choose six flavors of their premium Cedar Crest ice cream and enjoy small scoops to try! This is a great option if you are super indecisive.


Mochi at Ono

If you’ve never tried mochi, head to Ono! These treats are made of a sweet rice cake dough with ice cream filling. Flavors vary, including mango, vanilla, and green tea.


Margarita Towers at Gordon’s

Adults 21+ can enjoy margarita towers at Gordon’s Sports Bar & Grill. A variety of flavor combinations are available for your favorite summer taste.


Shakes at Scoops

With 30+ flavors of super premium ice cream, you can choose exactly what you want your shake to taste like. Maybe it will be a classic like chocolate, vanilla or strawberry, or maybe you’ll get wild and try something like Superman!

Slush Puppie at Trolley Dogs

Kids who grew up in the 90s will remember the Wild Cherry and Blue Raspberry joy of a Slush Puppie icy beverage. Grab one with your lunch at Trolley Dogs.
