Home of the Green Bay Packers

Green Bay, Wisconsin, with a population of 101,025 (according to the 2008 census), is the smallest city in the United States to host a professional sports team. Known as the Green Bay Packers and is the main tourist attraction for Green Bay.

During the home games, the stadium is packed full with dedicated fans. Even through the cold wintery weather, eager fans sit with their layers of clothing and blankets cheering on the team.

Be sure to visit Visit the Hall of Fame with nearly 80 exhibits including three Super Bowl trophies and a re-creation of Vince Lombardi's office. Videos of the Packer player and games for adults and children, like kicking a field goal.

Green Bay lies on the sub-basin of Lake Michigan, at the mouth of the Fox River. This river separates the west and east side of Green Bay. Fishing for walleye on the Fox River, water skiing and boat tours are a common site.

Visitors can take a guided tour in the double-decker bus.

      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!

      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!

      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!
