Sturtevant
is an incorporated village surrounded by
Mount
Pleasant
that is the home of
InSinkErator
and also a stopping point
for
Amtrak
, which makes it an easy commute to either Chicago or
Milwaukee.
Elmwood Park
is a small, upscale community located
just southwest of Racine.
Caledonia/Raymond
Located at the northern end of Racine County, the towns of
Caledonia and Raymond offer a rural setting that is midway
between Racine and Milwaukee.
Caledonia
is one of the largest
villages in the state with nearly 25,000 residents. Covering all of
eastern Racine County between Racine and the Milwaukee County
line, it is a rapidly developing area because of its proximity to
Milwaukee and the interstate.
Raymond
is located west of I-94
between Highway K and the Milwaukee County line. It is home to
the bustling
7 Mile Fair

Western Racine County
Dover
Union Grove
Yorkville
Life is relaxed and uncomplicated in rural Racine County, where
there is a wealth of recreational opportunities for people of all
ages. Rural in nature, it is only a half-hour drive from downtown
Milwaukee and Mitchell International Airport. New subdivisions
can be found outside all three of the communities.
Union Grove
,
located at the intersection of U.S. 45 and Hwy. 11, is the home of
the
Great Lakes Dragaway
, a popular location for drag racing.
Burlington
This fun-loving city has an international reputation – that is if you
can trust anyone who tells you about it. That’s because the city is
home to the 80-year-old
Burlington Liars Club
, which every New
Year’s Eve bestows upon one person the dubious honor of being
the tallest-tale teller. Truth be told, Burlington has a lot to offer.
Located at the junction of the White and Fox rivers, Burlington has
long been a crossroads of commerce. It is the Midwest home of
Nestlé USA
and celebrates all things chocolate, as evidenced by
the local
Chocolate Experience Museum
. Every spring it also hosts
the annual
ChocolateFest
, a three-day extravaganza that features
carnival rides, games, music and, of course, chocolate treats.
Burlington is close to
Lake Geneva
, a popular resort town.
