Leading up to the conference, I will elaborate more on the places I mentioned above, plus some other interesting places, so you know of what is available to see/do in Green Bay. I look forward to seeing you there!
Green Bay is Wisconsin’s oldest community, settled originally by the French as a fur-trading center. Today the city may be most famous for its namesake Green Bay Packers whose legendary past and present can be viewed at the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame* at Lambeau Field. Yet, the city’s appeal rests on a blend of many more elements that combine small town charm with big city excitement. Its attractions include the performing arts, Bay Beach Amusement Park, gambling and one-of-a-kind museums. For the historically minded, Green Bay is a bonanza. Visit Hazelwood Historic House, an authentically furnished, 1837 Greek-Revival home. Heritage Hill State Historical Park groups 25 historic buildings in four period “villages” dating from 1672-1905. The Neville Public Museum is an excellent repository of regional history. South of town, on the Oneida Indian Reservation, the cultural history of this Native American tribe is displayed at the Oneida Nation Museum.
