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...

  • Shake your way to DePere for good coffee

    Looking for a non-chain coffee shop in the Green Bay suburbs? Or one that has good access on and off the highway? I frequently drive through Green Bay on my way to Milwaukee or other points south, and I've been looking for several years for a non-chain coffee establishment that is only a minute or two off I-43 or Wisconsin Hwy. 172. (And I prefer...

  • Plae it again, Green Bay!

    There's been a lot of development in recent years in the suburbs of Green Bay, especially in the south suburbs out by the junction of I-43 and WI Highway 172. Bookstores, cheese shops, coffee houses and now this upscale bistro have now established themselves here, where only a few years ago cows grazed and the wheat waved in the wind.Plae Bistro is...

  • "I Heard it on the. . . " Cafe

    Interesting combination of cafe and interior design showroom - many of the tables, chairs, lighting fixtures, paintings on the wall etc. are all for sale. Pleasant menu which features many salads, sandwiches and lighter entrees. Most of the seating is in "nooks" which offer semi-privacy, which makes eating out here a little bit like eating in at...

  • Night Life, Restaurants, Bars,...

    http://www.GBNightLife.com is a pretty good website. They seem more up to date than most other websites and have an event calendar listing live music and other events. They also have editorial restaurant reviews and user reviews. I think it's pretty new.

  • Bar on every corner

    There is no shortage of bars in this city. We love our drinking. If you are a beer drinker then you're really in luck. A neighborhood bar on about every corner, a lot of sports bars, some breweries and even some dance clubs.

Green Bay Transportation

  • In the beautiful Airport Lobby

    They are currently working on an expansion of the Austin Straubel International Airport. What wonderous facilities the new facility will have only time will tell. In the meantime, we can appreciate the struggling banana tree that eeks out its existence in the airport lobby.

  • Austin Straubel International Airport

    Somehow, I doubt that there is regularly scheduled commercial jet service between Green Bay and any international city. But they do fly jets here, which means that there are a lot of people in the upper peninsula of Michigan who will drive to Green Bay to fly. I am not at all unusual myself as someone who is willing to drive 180 miles each way in...

  • Austin Straubel airport

    The airport that links Green Bay with several other cities in America is called the Austin Straubel intl airport. It is located to the southwest part of Green Bay with a good road (Airport Dr.) that gets you to highway 41 and 43. This airport is pretty close the city center and will only take about 15 minutes to the center by car.

Green Bay Shopping

  • Finally...An Awesome Shopping Place!

    This shop is fantastic. It is cute, modern and the girls that work there are delightful. I discovered it when I was visiting for a Packer Game, and have repeatedly come back to see the new fashions that they have available. As soon as you walk in, you feel like you are transported to a swanky boutique in NY, without the outrageous prices. I always...

  • Best chocolate

    Packer gear? Sure. Cheese? Yea. But did you know that Green Bay has not one, but two great chocolate stores (three if you include neighboring DePere)? Which is the best is open to debate. The best option is to buy from all of them.On the west side of town (that's the side with Lambeau Field) is Beerntsen's Candy Shop. When I was little it was...

Clothes (socks, ties, belts, shirts, hats, pajamas etc), stationary, bathroom decorations, kitchen dishes, pet supplies, games, furniture, its all here. Anything...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are going out to dinner on Friday it better be a fish fry at one of the local bar/restaurants. Perch is the preferred fish.

    Highland Howie's, Gippers and the Skytop are all good places for fish.

Green Bay Warnings and Dangers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Before you travel, make sure you know if there is a Packer home game going on. If there is, hotels will be booked and much more expensive. Also the night of the game driving anywhere near the stadium will be very difficult.

    Lighthouses are an important, even critical, part of Door County's colorful maritime history. Door County has 10 lighthouses, more than any other county in US. Special access to all the lighthouses is available fro two days every May during the Door County Lighthouse Walk.

Green Bay Off The Beaten Path

  • Bay Beach Amusement Park

    This is a small amusement park reminiscent of olden days. There is free entrance and all rides are under $0.50 ($1.00 for the roller coaster). Most of the rides are for younger kids, but there is still a scrambler and tilt-a-whirl and a few other adult rides. The roller coaster is a pretty exciting ride - even if you used to Great America.

  • Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary

    700 acre wildlife refuge which includes many trails, a nature center and a zoo-like area. Free admission. Open year round. Make sure to bring $1.00 and feed the geese while you are there. Also right by the amusement park, mini-golf and go-carts.

  • Water Ski Show

    See free water ski shows every Tuesday and Thursday evening of summer. It's a lot of fun to watch, and did I mention its free?!? This is a gem not a lot of people know about in Green Bay.

  • Great Bike Trails

    There are three trails that you can ride in the Green Bay Area. The Mountain Bay trail on the west side of town, the East River trail on the east side and the Fox River trail on the east side of the Fox River. There is no fee to use the East River Trail but it's only about 5 miles long. The other trails require a pass which can be purchased at...

  • Walleye Fishing

    The Fox River sports one of the best Walleye Fisheries in the country. I rarely get skunked when I head out on the river. My kids and I have had more success catching walleye here than anywhere else we've fished. We fish purely for sport. Catch and release. Eating fish from the river is still a bit risky. We typically troll with Rapala's. I'm not...

    The green bay packers are what green bay is about ! - The packers are the only team in the NFL that is owned by the people of the town so everyone has an intrest in the going on's of the team and its stars.I was not there for a game but im told its madness - they start with "tailgate" which is where everyone drives their car to the carpark and...

    My month-long internship at Notre Dame Academy where I had a good opportunity to meet my colleagues and their students. This is the statue of Jesus Christ at the entrance to the school. The statue greets everyone who enters the school. It's a private Catholic school.
