If I say "Green Bay" and you say "Packers", it's clear that the majority of your exposure to this fine Wisconsin destination is football oriented, and that's not such a big surprise. As home to an NFL team that had three Super Bowl wins and nine NFL Championship victories, this medium-sized city of just over 100,000 isn't all about tackles and touch-downs, though that's certainly a big part of life here at the edge of the water.
Settled around the southern shore of watery finger, Green Bay, visitors may find it takes a little wandering to get oriented, though many of the important sights are located along the Fox River. A big reason to visit of course, is catching a game on Lambeau Field, and in peak season you'll find stiff competition when it comes to booking accommodation. Elbow your way to the edge of the field late summer to see a training session, and sign up for a guided tour around the facility. You can't come this far to have a look at all things Packers and pass by the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame adjoining Lambeau Field, or fail to join fellow fans for a night at the Glory Years Pub surrounded by Packers memorabilia and share tales of the title years.
For a break from Football, tow kiddies along to the Heritage Hill Living History Museum, the Children's Museum of Green Bay or the Bay Beach Amusement Park. Find exhibits more adult-minded in the Neville Public Museum, tour Hazelwood Historic Home and make tracks for the National Railroad Museum.
If you're looking for fresh air and a bit of exercise, try the nature trails in the Wildlife Sanctuary, stroll the Green Bay Botanical Garden and see a few wild animals from a safe distance at the NEW Zoo.
Green Bay is 97 miles east of Wausau and 118 miles north of Milwaukee.
