Green Bay Reviews

194 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
It is a very peaceful place to raise a family. People are very nice. I like Green Bay because it is very community-based. People have very warm hearts. They also have a large population of volunteers for all sorts of programs. There are all so a large elderly community. If you come here please be polite. The Green Bay Packers are here as well. I am not a native here, but the community definitely supports the team. The Packer Games are very memorable. The public education system here is not bad at all. My children attend a school that has many different Art Programs. Green Bay is a place to settle down and raise a familly
A very friendly community! People celebrate football, cheese, and yes-beer, while raising families and living comfortably.
