Green Bay offers many family friendly events in the area. There is something for everybody. Touring Lambeau Field is an incredible experience, even for people who are not Packer fans. Green Bay has many diverse restaurants to explore as well!
Review Green Bay
I have lived in Green Bay practically my whole life. I grew up here with family and have gone to public school here. From experience, I have had great teachers and was fortunate enough to attend great schools. They have great school with AP opportunities, advanced classes, and many clubs and organizations to try. Downtown is very empty now. I hope one day downtown will become busier. No trouble with safety so far. There are many events here for family fun such as BayBeach Amusement Park and Kids Day. Healthy living is also very possible with the many parks and gyms. There are always people walking and running in my neighborhood and parks. Diversity here is average but better than most cities. There are many opportunities to learn about different cultures with the many events that goes on in the community.
I moved to Green Bay from Stevens Point, WI. The people here are incredible - everyone is so nice and accommodating. The city itself is a good middle step between a small town and a big city. It's a city disguises as a small town, but feels very big during football season!
