Things to do in Green Bay - Beyond Tailgating
Last Updated: 11/30/2016
While legendary Lambeau Field tours and tailgating are a must when in town for a Packer game, extend your stay a little longer to explore a city with a lot of personality and heart. And if the football games are any indication, Green Bay is a city that knows how to have fun!
Go in depth with the Packer experience
Follow a self guided tour along the Packers Heritage Trail to sites that were instrumental in creating the legendary team we know today. This city walk features 22 commemorative plaques that give an in-depth history of how the team was created (it is the only public team left, after all!) and those who were crucial to the success of the Green Bay Packers. You can also tour via Segway.
Green Bay Attractions - Brewery Tours
If there’s one thing Wisconsinites know how to do well, it’s brew a good beer. Take a tour, sip some suds and enjoy hearty food at Hinterland Brewery and Titletown Brewery. Hinterland offers tours and features four seasonal brews that go great with the bold, delicious flavors on the menu. Titletown Brewery is located in the old Chicago and Northwestern Railroad Depot. The handcrafted beers pair perfectly with a hearty menu with favorites like the elk burger and bison meatloaf. Bottom line: you won’t go home thirsty or hungry.
Family Attractions in Green Bay
It’s not hard to keep the kids entertained with a number of children-focused activities in the area. Start at the Children’s Museum of Green Bay, opened in 2012, where you won’t find any signs reading “don’t touch.” Kids love crawling through the digestive system, splashing in water galleries, and getting creative at the imagination station. For train enthusiasts, a visit to the National Railroad Museum is a must. Train rides run through October, but don’t miss the Great Pumpkin Train in October and the Polar Express November-December. With over 70 pieces of vintage train cars, there’s plenty to see and do!
Green Bay's Natural Beauty
Named for the body of water it resides next to, Green Bay has a number of outdoor recreation areas just waiting to be played in. The Brown County Reforestation Camp boasts almost 1,600 acres and may have the only trails in the state where you can hear a lion growl, as it also encompasses the NEW Zoo. Climb the observation tower for spectacular views and bike, hike, cross country ski, and snowshoe more than 18 miles of trails. Similarly, Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve is 920-acre wildlife area on the west shore of Green Bay with nine miles of biking, hiking and winter sports trails. Both nature areas are a fantastic way to get fresh air, enjoy fall color in autumn or fresh snow in winter, and enjoy the natural side of Green Bay.This entry was posted in Tours
