Green Bay Reviews

184 reviews
All Categories
I love the city of Green Bay. Great smaller community with the growing diversity of different cultural backgrounds. I believe Green Bay is a wonderful city to start a family and raise my children. The job market is smaller compared to larger metropolitan cities yet still competitive with surrounding cities. The current housing market is affordable and great for first time home owners. Adult night life may be limited, but there are numerous restaurants and local taverns to enjoy including the events filled with the Green Bay Packers, Green Bay Blizzards, UW-Phoenix.
Review Green Bay
A very friendly community! People celebrate football, cheese, and yes-beer, while raising families and living comfortably.
Growing up in Green Bay is an opportunity I was fortunate enough to experience. The public education is pretty good and overall it provides a comfortable, safe place with friendly neighbors. Traffic is not an issue, however public transportation could be greatly improved. From the surface Green Bay does not seem like a cultured diverse place to live but if you spend enough time here you can discover great company, a sense of community and a diverse population that you might not expect.
