A city whose name has become synonymous with its NFL team, the Packers, Wisconsin's oldest settlement boasts a rich historical tapestry. From its earliest entrepreneurs trading, beaver pelts for European hats in the 1600s to the invention of the world’s first splinter-free toilet paper in 1900s Green Bay has always made the most of its location among the abundant resources on an arm of Lake Michigan. It is at the center of a prosperous shipping lane. Founded almost a century ago, The Green Bay Packers have some of the loyalist fans in the NFL. Season tickets have been sold out since 1960.
The abundance of bars and local entertainment makes the city perfect for any sports fan. For avid fans, the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame remains a must-see. After, of course, you have visited Lambeau Field, the city’s 80,000-capacity stadium, which often hosts tours. Culturally, both the Weidner Center for Performing Arts and The Resch Center often host internationally acclaimed performances, from Bon Jovi to Broadway, and Carrie Underwood to chamber orchestras. Green Bay's growing art scene proffers to all tastes.
On average, there are 187 sunny days per year in Green Bay. Warm summers look to cold snowy winters as the dry air encourages snowfall.
Arts and Culture
With the city's annual Artstreet festival in August, nearly 200 artists visit to exhibit and sell their work. While in March, the Green Bay Film Festival displays new pieces from local talent and draws some of the best filmmakers from all over Wisconsin.
