Green Bay Wisconsin Real Estate

A nationally known town because of its NFL team, Green Bay, Wisconsin, has a population of just over 100,000 residents but has a friendly, small-town charm. With everything from beautiful parks and family-friend activities to companies large and small, the city is the perfect place to buy a home. And, for those times when you need a taste of the big city, Milwaukee is just 90 miles south.

Situated on a subbasin of Lake Michigan, the city is the third-largest in Wisconsin, behind Milwaukee and Madison as well as the county seat for Brown County. The city has an excellent school district, top-ranked colleges, and plenty of year-round entertainment and shopping.

History

History

The Old Brewing Co. Building in Green Bay Wisconsin

Green Bay has the special distinction of being the oldest European settlement in Wisconsin, joining several Native American tribes in the area, including the Menominee and Ho Chunk (Winnebago). The earliest documented meeting between the Ho Chunk tribe and Eurpoeans dates back to 1634 when Jean Nicolet came through the area on his way to find a better trade route to China via Canada. A trading post was set up in the Green Bay area, with beaver pelts being the main source of currency. Many French Canadians came down to the area and over the years were joined by immigrants from Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Norway, and Sweden. Wisconsin’s first newspaper, The Green Bay Intelligencer, was started here, and the city was also the first to receive mail delivery. Green Bay also holds claim to the invention of the world’s first splinter-free toilet paper.

Green Bay along Fox River in Wisconsin

Take in a Packer game
Don your green and gold apparel and head to Lambeau Field for an unforgettable experience supporting the home team. Don’t forget your brats and beer so you can join thousands of others tailgating in the parking lot before game time.

Spend a day at Bay Beach Amusement Park
There’s no need to go anywhere else for fun and games when you can go to the Bay Beach Amusement Park. There’s a Ferris Wheel and plenty of other rides and games. Tickets are just 25-cents each which makes it much cheaper than a trip to Great America down in Chicagoland. Concessions are available, as well as a picnic area for those who want to bring their own food.

Heritage Hill State Park
Step back in time and learn about history by going through the 26 buildings staffed by interpreters that share what a day in their life was like. Go here in mid-summer to avoid school groups and get more time to discover life in 18th and 19th century Green Bay.

Fox River State Trail
On warm summer days put on your walking shoes and head out to the Fox River State Trail, which consists of 25 miles of trails that meander through the Fox River Valley.

Foxy Pedaler
Whether friends are visiting you at your new home in Green Bay or you want to be a tourist in your town, give the Foxy Pedaler party bike a try. There’s room for 14 people, and not everyone has to pedal. The two-hour guided rides around town include stops at popular places for snacks and drinks, as arranged in your itinerary.

Oneida Pow-Wow
The Oneida tribe welcomes visitors to their annual three-day pow-wow that’s held every July. It’s the largest pow-wow in the Midwest and attracts Native Americans and those interested in the culture from all over the USA.

Location

Climate in Green Bay Folks who call Green Bay home get to experience all four seasons and all the temperature variability that comes with them. Summers are pleasant, with evenings cool enough that you might slip on your favorite Packer hoodie or flannel shirt. Winters are cold, like wearing your long underwear cold, and snow falls often enough that Green Bay homeowners tend to own snowblowers so they can clear out their driveways. While snow, rain, sleet, thunderstorms, hail, and lightning are not unheard of, tornadoes are very rare up in northern Wisconsin.
