Racine County is a mix of what’s best about Wisconsin and the Midwest. If you like quiet, small towns, you’ll enjoy our compact and friendly rural villages, like Waterford , Rochester and Union Grove. If you like thriving, busy cities, you’ll want to take in the sights of Racine with its beckoning lakefront, fascinating Frank Lloyd Wright architecture and exciting downtown or experience Burlington nestled in the scenic Fox River valley. If you're looking for accessible suburbs, visit the villages of Mount Pleasant, Caledonia, Sturtevant or Wind Point. If you appreciate the serenity of rolling farmland, you’ll want to spend time on our county highways, which include picturesque rustic roads. And if you love the water, you might find it hard to choose between Lake Michigan to the east and dozens of delightful inland lakes to the west.
