HISTORIC PLACES TO VISIT
Architecture fans, particularly Frank Lloyd Wright fans, will appreciate free tours of SC Johnson Headquarters and Wingspread. Home to Ziploc, Scrubbing Bubbles, Glade, and more, visitors will find this corporate headquarters anything but boring. From the 43 miles of glass pyrex that form the windows on the Administration building to the historic Golden Rondelle Theater, these are must see buildings in Racine.
Located in the northern part of Racine, stands the 108 feet tall Wind Point Lighthouse. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the lighthouse was first lit in 1880 and today it continues to serve as a navigational aid to boats on Lake Michigan.
Those looking for a mix of historic charm, boutique shopping, art galleries, and international cuisine will find that in Downtown Racine. Stroll along Main Street where you’ll find a mix of locally made goods as well as world-renowned art and even the quintessential Wisconsin corner taverns.
On your drive from The Seeker Motel to Main Street, be sure to venture down College avenue, where you’ll find a completely brick-paved road, as well as many historic Victorian Houses.
