Racine is French for "root," fitting because the settlement that is now Racine grew out of the area where the Root River empties into Lake Michigan. Located in the Chicago-Milwaukee corrider, Racine claims to be the largest settlement of Danes outside of Greenland and the city is known for its Danish pastries. Several local bakeries have been featured on the Food Networks. The city is also known for its large prom celebration, during which students from all of the city's high schools participate in one large after prom party.
