    Actually, I visited before the date I mentioned, but it was memorable. The factory and office complex is one of the most amazing architectural experiences available in the USA. From the originality of the design, unlike anything else, to the unusual forms, the consistent but varied shapes, the ingenious lighting, a corridor of glass tubes, and the almost fanatical attention to harmonious detail, this is something to savor and then to remember. It's colorful, bright, engaging, slightly fanatical, and you won't forget having seen it. It has probably inspired young visitors to become architects.

    Having visited a lot of FLW sites in the previous week, we were pleased that there was a tour of Wingspread on a day we could get there - otherwise, coming from the UK, we were unlikely to have another chance. The brief introduction reiterated some points we had heard at other properties, but that is hardly the fault of the docent. We enjoyed the film with memories from Sam and Karen, who were children when the family moved into the house. We also enjoyed being allowed to explore on our own after watching the film.

    It is true that it doesn't really feel like a family house, having been used as a conference centre for many years with the associated alterations, but we still appreciated seeing the space and hearing about its history. And it is undeniably one of the two best value tours we took in the US (the other being the SC Johnson campus), as it was free.

    We visited on a "First-Friday" in August and they had a make-your-own activity on the back patio. The kids and I made drawings as if we were looking out a submarine window, which was a great way to get them involved in art.

    This place is the best. I have been here quite a few times. My father, who passed away the end of April, loved this farm. I have had many of the vegetables including bell peppers, onions, corn, eggplant, squash and the best is the corn. It is so sweet and so fresh. This is just a roadside produce stand, but incredibly fresh, and the best prices. Plus, it is just amazing to be able to buy produce that was picked the same day. It is a bit of a drive for me, so I have never had their fruit. They don’t always have strong bags, so you may want to bring your own. We have met some of the farmers, and they are very nice. It is just so nice to know that places like this still exist. Even the customers are just happy so it’s just a great experience.

    We really loved the beach. It was nice to see that you can go further and still not too deep. My 9 year old daughter enjoyed it the most. It was also great to see my son seems like running on the water. We all had a great time!

    We've been to the Racine zoo twice, once as a couple and 10 years later with our 2 kids, 5 and 7. This is a nice, small zoo and a great way to spend a few hours in Racine. The kids loved feeding the giraffes, feeding the birds and the train ride, as well playing on the playground.

    I also highly recommend visiting the zoo beach!

    Looking for a between Christmas and New Year activity with family and decided on this based on several good reviews. First off this is a very nice regional small museum. They had displays on local/regional focus including: Sports, Frank Lloyd Wright: the early years, drum & bugle corps to name a few. They even have an Egyptian mummy, something I didn't expect from a small museum. The building is three stories (all stairs, no elevators, I don't recommend with people with major mobility issues). I think the thing that made this a fun trip was the information desk had scavenger hunt sheets - 3 different kinds. It is fun for kids and adults too. One was questions of that you had to go around the museum to find the answers, another was a visual search: pictures of a 'segment' of a display you had to find and last: Find the rubber ducks they hid in the museum. They listed how many ducks per floor and spoiler alert, not all the ducks are "yellow" in color. You do get a prize by finding all the ducks. It made for a fun filled afternoon. I recommend this place, and if you are not bringing kids, then bring your inner child with you and play the scavenger hunt games.

    Hiking trails through wooded areas, along the river, boardwalks through swampy areas, canoes and kayaks available for rent. There is also an education center indoors and an outside ampitheater. It's one of my favorite places to hike in spring and fall.

    My niece has a sailboat here. This is a very clean facility. Various locked entrances. A little store that offers ice cream and a delightful walk around to the point where the boats enter marina from Lake Michigan. I stayed at nearby hotel so was able to walk here. Private pool area for marina slip owners. I was very impressed.

    I was recently lucky enough to see the Wizard of Oz at the Racine Theatre Guild that was really excellent! There was an outstanding lion, tin man, and scarecrow. A perfectly cast set of characters included Dorothy, Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, and Wizard of Oz. The music, direction, and choreography were incredible! It was a brilliant show from start to fsnini ,
