“Like a slice of the Caribbean on the Racine Lakefront”
Review of North Beach Park

USA Today's #1 beach in Wisconsin in 2012. Top 10 beaches on the Great Lakes.

We spend a good part of the year in Maui...so we know nice beaches.

Lovely, large, clean sugar sand beach with hammocks, palm trees and adirondack chairs near the concession stand/beach house, in combination with the beautiful water makes this a little slice of the Caribbean. The glass mosaic on the beach house is a nice touch and mirrors the restrooms at Kalama Beach Park in Kihei, Maui.

A mat walkway out to the "surf" makes the long, arduous walk across the beach to water access super-easy, even for strollers, wheeled coolers or wheelchairs! Well life-guarded, there is a sandbar that keeps the water pretty shallow for a good ways.

Heavy use on weekends can take a toll on the trash removal and restroom facilities; if it weren't for that, this would be a 5 star beach!

Beautiful sandy beach is very large, water has mild waves and you can walk out quite a ways and its not too deep. Even some palm trees and hammocks bear the concession area. Lifeguards on duty at times. Be sure to swim in designated areas, as it can be dangerous near the concrete piers. Bathhouse could be cleaner, and it smelled like pot smoke, were the only negatives.

Found this beach from another TA member's comments, while looking up places to visit in IL. Have to give this little hidden gem a thumb up for being what everyone said it would be. Nice clean beach with lifeguards, themed playground that's HUGE (toddler loved it!), and beautifully kept grounds making it easy to relax. Sharing a few pics so you can be convinced...

I love the fact on how clean and well kept the sand always is. The palm trees help to add to the feel you are on a little vacation :) It a great a great trip to get out of Milwaukee and not far.

This beach is something you do not believe until you see it. It took us a year of leaving in the area to actually go check it out. When we did, we were shocked. The sand is so ice and fine. It is clean. A huge beach area. We will be there a lot more this summer.
