Green Bay Might Just Be Your Next Top Travel Stop
A Midwestern Jewel Packed With Classic American Flavor…and we don’t just mean cheese.
Welcome fellow travelers, to the city of Green Bay! You may know it as the home of the legendary Lambeau Field and the 4-Time Champion Green Bay Packers, but trust us, there’s more than football waiting to be explored. Known as a haven for outdoor lovers, Green Bay will be a vacation destination like no other. Let’s take a trip and explore some of its most unique places, local flavors, and fun activities!
Imagine strolling through the Broadway Farmers Market, one of the largest in the state, where your senses are captivated by fresh farm produce, baked goods, and a variety of cheeses from more than 110 local vendors. Maybe enjoy a craft beer while you peruse the local handcrafted finds, or take in a live band. Afterwards, take a guided art tour and check out the downtown area where every corner is basically an open-air museum with vibrant murals and sculptures.
After the bustling market experience, maybe take your time, and feel free to get LOST IN the Green Bay Botanical Garden’s 47 acres of display gardens, taking in the stunning architecture of the breathtaking Betty Meyer Bridge, a massive covered bridge wrapped in vines that spans a daffodil-covered creek bed. Or take a moment of peaceful contemplation in the elegant memorial grove with its thought-provoking stainless steel infinity loop set upon 7 pillars overlooking and reflecting the seasonal flowers in the shaded grove. Imagine taking an enchanting trip through a beautiful fairy garden surrounded by blooming flowers and beautiful butterflies at every turn. With plants chosen specifically for their ability to thrive in the region’s climate, every season offers a new experience, new sights to behold.
There are plenty of fun outdoor activities available for the whole family in Green Bay including scenic bike trails and plenty of cool spots for kayaking around the Green Bay area. If you’re a paddler looking for calm waters and stunning wilderness, you must check out Green Bay Sail & Paddle, a nonprofit organization that creates opportunities for everyone to enjoy sail and paddle sports on the waters of the bay. When you’re on the water, you may notice it’s actually green! In 1634, French explorer Jean Nicolet named the area La Baye Verte, meaning “The Green Bay” because of the greenish color of the water from the algae in the bay.
Looking for a unique and affordable outing for the whole family? Check out historic Bay Beach Amusement Park, which has been welcoming guests to its classic midway for over 130 years with its throwback carnival-style rides and games, and with throwback prices to boot—most costing only a few cents to ride! For the thrill seekers, Bay Beach Amusement Park is home to one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in the U.S., The Zippin Pippin. Originally constructed in the former East End Park in Memphis, Tennessee, and known to be Elvis Presley’s favorite roller coaster, this wooden behemoth still packs a thrilling punch! It ranked #4 on Amusement Today’s Golden Ticket Awards for “Best New Ride” in 2011—nearly 100 years after it was first built! Be sure to ride the 100-foot Tall Ferris wheel, “The Big Wheel” for one of Green Bay’s most breathtaking views of the bay—and at only $0.75 to ride, one of the most affordable! Between the friendly staff and carnival food, Bay Beach will leave you with memories and laughs you’ll remember for a lifetime, and maybe even a little change in your pocket.
