Simmons Beach
Kenosha, Wisconsin

Rate the beach: excellent plus

Dogs are allowed.  Watch the high tide.  I spend hour to 2 hours collecting a quart size bag of premium glass.  I want to know why we have more & better quality than anywhere in the U.S.

Note from David at Odyssey Sea Glass:

Don't rely only on this report. It does not include enough information (for example, photos or good description of glass found).

So this report and beach are unverified. Photos are really pretty necessary for us to get an idea of the quality of glass found at any beach.

Beach Glass in Kenosha
by: Miles

My best day of marble hunting was on the northern beaches of Kenosha.

Six total marbles with one of them being a half-marble.

I've never found great glass in Kenosha, but the beaches south of Milwaukee are incredible for bulk glass and marbles!

Why no more reports? :>(
by: David and Lin from OdysseySeaGlass

Like Ruth, we are amazed that, with the excellent beach glass reported, there are no photos of any beach glass from Kenosha that we have been able to find.

So this is a call to y'all who live near or visit the beach in Kenosha to share some of your photos with all of us.

It would be greatly appreciated!

I am shocked that no one has confirmed the excellent rating for Simmons & Penoyer beaches in Kenosha WI.

I will soon be moving to Florida where there will be an abundance of shells but no beach glass so I have been pleading with friends to send me their findings here in Kenosha.

There are days when the rough waves cause sand to cover the rocks where the glass settles but more often that not we find plenty especially early morning approximately 5-6am.

It's probably because we are one of the first ones on the beach. O thoroughly enjoy this addicting hobby.
