About the Community

Overview

Racine is a city that has something for everyone! It lies just 22 miles south of Milwaukee and boasts affordability as well as a strong sense of community. In January 2017, Racine was rated “The Most Affordable Place to Live in the World” by the Demographia International Housing Affordability survey. Because Racine is located off of lake Michigan and Root River, there is no shortage of outdoor activities available to you and your family. There are also numerous trendy restaurants, museums, art galleries, and much more. Racine is also America’s Kringle Capital, so stop by one of its Kringle shops for a tasty treat.

Recreation

Whether you’re looking for a place to hike, picnic on the river, eat delicious food, see some inspiring art, or just enjoy a night out with the kids, Racine has every option covered! Enjoy one of the many lakeside or riverside parks on a sunny day and do a little fishing with your friends or family. If fishing isn’t your thing but animals are, take a trip to the Racine Zoo and appreciate a different part of nature. For a little more excitement, Escape for Drinks offers you a chance to escape a room and win a free drink if you get out before the time runs out! There are also tours of the beautiful architecture in the area that include homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and several of his students. There are plenty of cafes, like Mocha Lisa, pizza joints, like Ferraro’s Pizza, or go to Fred’s Burgers for a classic American meal!
