Midwest Living: Wisconsin [sic] Ethnic Settlement Trail
The Ethnic Settlement Trail is a 200-mile corridor that passes through 14 counties along the Lake Michigan shore from Racine and Kenosha counties in the south to Marinette and Door counties in the north.

Many of the immigrants who came to Wisconsin in the 1800s settled in this eastern portion of the state. Nationalities tended to live in clusters - Irish, German and Italian, as well as a dozen other groups including Swiss, Dutch and Belgian. Before long, a collection of ethnic villages dotted the shore. The Ethnic Settlement Trail links the remnants of those Old World communities and cultures in the largest concentration of 19th-century ethnic settlements in the U.S. Travelers also can follow markers outlining the Green Bay Ethnic Trail, an early route Native Americans traveled through the region from Kenosha to Green Bay.
