The first threshing machine, the first horseless carriage, the first powdered milk, and the first official woman minister have all one thing in common: Racine. The town fathers and mothers like to proclaim that their city in tops in "innovation, invention, and ingenuity." The wealth of the most famous citizens was poured into Racine's elegant homes and the refined, tree-shaded streets, especially in the historic downtown. Hand-carved wood and leaded windows even mark the business district, with explosions of seasonal floral displays adding a touch of class at almost every street corner. Racine's shops can satisfy every taste, the restaurants every palate, the entertainments every age. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Milwaukee. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
