    The New Zoo

    by moiraistyx Updated Aug 30, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Football isn't the only thing Green Bay has to offer, thank God, there's only so many cheese hats one can tolerate. Green Bay also has a great and kid friendly zoo call The New Zoo.They are always having special events with activities for the kids and sometimes for the adults. Zoo staff walk around with animals for the visitors to pet. It was a great experience for the kids. There is a play park for the kids to run off some of their extra energy. Bree was 6 and Patrick was 2 the last time we were here. They had a great time.

    The zoo is open most days 9AM to 8PM,

    Admission to the zoo has gone up a lot since I was last there, when it cost me $12 for three of us. Current admission rates are:
    NEW Zoo Members Free Admission
    Children (2yrs & under) Free Admission
    Children (3-15yrs) $4.00
    Adult (16yrs+) $6.00
    Senior (62yrs+) $4.00

    Lambeau Field

    by trvlrtom Updated Oct 20, 2009
    Vince Lombardi at Lambeau Field

    Without a doubt Lambeau Field is one of the USA's premier sports venues. Going to a game here is an experience unlike any other. Tradition is set in every brick. The stadium dates to 1957, but was greatly expanded and remodeled just a few years ago. Despite the icy winter weather, the stadium does not have a dome, and the famed frozen tundra remains the playing surface.
    Even if you don't visit to see a game, the Packer Hall of Fame is worth stopping in to see. Also, the statue of Vince Lombardi, the greatest pro football coach ever, is right in front.

    Historic Hazelwood

    by trvlrtom Written Oct 20, 2009
    Hazelwood

    When Heritage Hill State Park was created around 1980 almost all of Green Bay's historic buildings were moved from their original locations to the hillside in nearby Allouez. One historical gem, Hazelwood, remains in the very spot where it was built overlooking the Fox river back in 1837. This fine neo-classical home was built by one of Green Bay's most prominent early civic leaders, Morgan Martin, and his family lived here until teh 1930s. Today it is a museum and serves as the home of the Brown County Historical Society, which has some offices and a small bookstore in the basement.

    The house is not very big, but full of history and Victorian era artifacts. The layout and settings are as they would have been when the family lived there, and the docents who work here are happy to share their knowledge. A relatively new outbuilding has a wall display of construction techniques that were common in pioneer times, which I thought was very interesting.

    Historic Astor neighborhood

    by trvlrtom Written Jan 23, 2008

    Astor neighborhood home

    On the city's east side there is a pleasant neighborhood of historic interest - Astor. This is primarily a residential neighborhood with a hospital complex that has grown in the middle of it, with several smaller parks. You will see a lot of fine old homes, primarily from the late 1800s and early 1900s. St. James Park and Baird Square are public parks, along with Astor Park, which really lies a little outside the district.

    The neighborhood was recognized in the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

    County Courthouse

    by trvlrtom Written Oct 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Like old county courthouses across the midwest US, the Brown County Courthouse was long a central fixture in the town. Over the decades the building showed its age, but fortunately it was renovated in the early 1990s. in 1976 the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places

    The statue in front of the building always caught my interest when I was a child. The large stone figures representing the historical perception of the city fathers 100 years ago. Interior murals also present a innocuous perception of the early Native American - European encounters in the area. It is interesting stuff to contemplate.

    The county's web page has a lot of information about the building itself and is worth looking at.

    Packer Game or training camp...

    Lambeau Field

    Packer Game or training camp is a must in the summer and fall.
    The Packers are full of tradition and it truly is an electrifying experience to be present at a game.

    Lambeau offers daily tours, but there is nothing like the electricity of game day! The Packer Hall of Fame and pro shop are immediately adjacent to the atrium.

    If you would like tickets, I may have access to the exclusive club seats ($225/ticket).

    NEW Zoo

    by Gypsygirl05 Written Apr 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Moose!

    First things first, NEW does not mean 'new.' It stands for NorthEast Wisconsin, and it's a widely used acronym in this part of the state. The zoo is not directly in town, which is a bonus because it means there's a better atmosphere for the animals. There are a lot of native animals, like wolves, deer, black bears, moose, lynxes and foxes, as well as many foreign animals, like giraffes, lions, wallabies, penguins and red pandas. I personally like the native animals the best, mostly because they're unique to Wisconsin--where else will you see moose in a zoo? It's in a really peaceful place, and there are always programs going on around the zoo. If you have time to spare, I definitely suggest taking the drive out to this zoo.

    Go Pack Go!

    by leplaya Written Jan 20, 2007
    #4 about to score a touchdown

    This is pretty much the only reason to go to Green Bay. Lambeau field is the stadium of one of American Football's most historical team. Even if you aren't a Green Bay fan (or a football fan at all), it is quite a sight to see the thousands of fans in green and gold wearing cheeseheads cheering their team. Tickets are very difficult (or very expensive) to get, but if you're in the area during a game day (and you'll know if it's game day), definately make sure you stop by the stadium for the tailgating party before the game.

    Despite the fact that there are tens of thousands of people attending each game, it's not too difficult to find a parking space (if you're willing to walk a couple of blocks). People charge upto $20 for a parking space on their property near the stadium, but a few blocks away, there is free street parking.

    The Vikings and Packers

    I know this is a Green Bay page, but let's talk about one of the greatest rivalries in the National Football League. Vikes-Pack! The Vikings and Packers have had some of the most elite players in the National Football League. Brett Favre, Bart Starr, James Lofton and Reggie White are just some of the Packers greats over the years. The Vikes have has such illustrious players as Fran Tarkenton, Carl Eller, Alan Paige, Cris Carter and Randy Moss.

    Packers Game

    Bubba Franks catches a touchdown versus Baltimore

    Of course, it's a given, but going to Green Bay you MUST attend a Packers game at Lambeau Stadium. Get there early to take part in some tailgate activities and time permitting, the Packer Hall Of Fame. Brett Favre's steakhouse is across the street, which makes a perfect place for a post-game meal and/or celebration.
