The Tourist Attractions in Green Bay:
The Green Bay Packers
The Packers are one of the oldest teams still playing in the NFL and have a very strong fan base, not only in the US, but around the world. Tickets for home games are much in demand but if you want to catch a home game there are ways of getting hold of tickets by purchasing tour packages. If you can’t get along to a game you can still go and see where it all happens with a visit to Lambeau Field and a behind the scenes tour.
Fans of American Football might also like to visit the former home of the Green Bay Packers, City Stadium, where they played from 1926 to 1956.
Bay Beach Amusement Park
Open since 1892 the Bay beach Amusement Park is a nice attraction if you’re visiting Green Bay with children. There are no roller coasters here, so don’t expect high thrill rides, but there are 15 rides for the kids including a ferris wheel, bumper cars, a train ride and more.
The Northeastern Wisconsin Zoo, commonly known as NEW Zoo, is 11 miles (17km) outside Green Bay and is another popular family attraction. There are many different species of animals here from around the world including moose, elk, bison, lynx, bobcats and prairie dogs from North America.
