13 Jul Road Trip to Racine!
Downtown Racine is an arty, historic, lakefront town. Small enough that we know our neighbors and big enough to boast an amazing history that we build on today. From a unbelievable selection of locally owned restaurants (Asian, Pakistani, Spanish, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Cajun) plus good old fashioned pub food, farm to table and yes, fish fries! Add the largest beach on this side of Lake Michigan, cool Frank Lloyd Wright and other architecture, plus the best collection of American Craft at the Racine Art Museum and you can easily fill a day, weekend—or week—exploring this town! Did we mention bike trails, hiking, shopping and two breweries? Oh and there are several marinas, yacht clubs and a fun historical museum which showcases why Racine was dubbed ‘Invention City’….. Malted milk, Case tractors, IN-Sinkerator, Hamilton Beach, Raid, Windex, Pledge, Ziplock and all the Johnson products, Nash cars….the Racine Belles WWII women’s baseball team, the Dremel tools we love for glass…. All called Racine home!
And since 2005, so does Hot Shop Glass! Come visit us.
