GREEN BAY IS FAMOUS FOR FOOTBALL, BUT IT’S ALL THE HIDDEN TREASURES THAT MAKE GREATER GREEN BAY A SPECIAL PLACE TO VISIT.
Green Bay is Wisconsin’s oldest settlement. The very first visitors to Greater Green Bay were successful entrepreneurs. From beaver pelts for European hat makers in the 1600s, to the invention of the world’s first splinter-free toilet paper in the early 1900s, our ancestors used the area’s waterways to grow the community’s prosperity. Blessed with an abundance of natural resources, Green Bay was, and continues to be, a major shipping center. The city’s largest employers remain the paper and shipping industries. With continuous development in Green Bay and its surrounding communities, the area boasts a progressive atmosphere from industrial parks to shopping districts.
In addition to being known around the world for contributions to industry and agriculture, Green Bay is the smallest city to have a professional sports team. Founded in 1919, the 13-time World Champion Green Bay Packers are the only NFL team to be owned by its fans.
Green Bay is just a 40-minute drive west of Algoma. Take a tour of Lambeau Field, ride the train at the National Railroad Museum and stroll the 47-acre Green Bay Botanical Garden. The kids will love Bay Beach Amusement Park, The Children’s Museum of Green Bay and Titletown Park which has tubing and ice skating in the winter, and a giant playground and full-size football field in the summer.
The area is filled with restaurants that embody local cuisine, and there are hundreds of events every year including festivals, farmers markets and theatre performances for you to enjoy. Visit our website to request a visitor guide, sign up for our e-news and check our blogs for great travel ideas.
