Green Bay has so much history especially with sports and the Green Bay Packers. There is so much to do and see and every Sunday is always a party when the Packers are playing! It is also nearby to other large cities such as Appleton and Oshkosh which provides for a large range of opportunities for jobs, entertainment and anything else you can imagine.

Green Bay is an interesting city. We are the smallest city to be home to an NFL team, the Green Bay Packers. We are truly unique in that but just because we are a small city doesn't mean we don't have huge support for our Packers. The Packers are also more than just a team to Green Bay. They players really give back to the community and host lots of community events and really make sure to stay in touch with its fans. Green Bay and would definitely not be the same without the packers. Green Bay is also always trying to improve it's downtown area and I've got to say that over the years they have really transformed it. We are still considered a small city but the downtown area really seems like it belongs in a bigger city. Green Bay will always be a place to remember for me wherever I go because of all the friends and memories I've made. It's just no quite like anywhere else.
Green Bay is a great place to be if you like the Green Bay Packers! The whole city offers many fun things such as parks, museums, restaurants, movie theaters, malls, an amusement park, and the beautiful Lambeau Field.
