I'd love to go to that wildlife sanctuary! I actually drove through Wisconsin when I was driving my kids across country to meet up with Bob in Tacoma, WA and it was such a beautiful state - I only wish I could have actually lingered and enjoyed it more! I drove through in the fall and it was absolutely gorgeous. Great job on the travel hub!

Have never been to Green Bay but someday when I visit I would really enjoy that Wildlife Sanctuary. It sounds really cool. Wasn't Bart Starr a Green Bay Packer? Ohhh I'm really showing my age now!

Awesome wrap up of this town! It's been years since I've been to Green Bay, but I can see a trip over there this fall as the leaves change. Should be a nice drive!
