While Racine struggles with unemployment and economic recession, Downtown Racine can be a very exciting and charming place with good shopping, a first class Arts and Crafts Museum, a variety of galleries and Art Shows and Festivals, First Fridays, Parades and live music on Monument Square. Always decorated with flowers, flags, street art, Downtown Racine can be a surprise highlight of a trip to SouthEastern Wisconsin. Historic buildings, views of Lake Michigan, surprisingly good small restaurants.....there is still some work to be done to attract businesses to vacant shops and buildings,but Downtown Racine can be a real treat.

It's been a long time coming, but Racine is getting it right. First Friday, when's the weather cooperates, is a great way to experience Downtown Racine at it's best.

Racine, sadly seems to following the path of Detroit. The city seems to be really struggling. My family and I were floored by the racially charged language that we over heard in the downtown area restaurants. A friend took me to a bar and it was the same thing. This place has some issues. I am guessing the high unemployment rate has a lot to do with what we experienced. The sad part is that it seems like it was once a really decent place.
