141104-Week-19-Zippin-PippinWhat attractions, destinations or restaurants in Green Bay would you recommend to a first time visitor and why?

No. 2 Mason Crosby – If you have kids the railroad museum is a really fun time. My family likes the Bay Beach amusement park on the east side of town.

No. 37 Sam Shields – Lambeau, because it’s history people need to know about.

No. 24 Jarrett Bush – Of course you gotta see Lambeau Field. And favorite restaurants in the Green Bay area are Plae Bistro and Nakashima’s.

141104-Week-19-National-Train-Museum,-Green-BayNo. 42 Morgan Burnett – The first thing you have to do is see Lambeau, of course, and my favorite restaurant in Green Bay has to be Plae Bistro.

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 (reopening in the spring). 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, gambling and one-of-a-kind museums. All-aboard the National Railroad Museum where artifacts on display give visitors a visual reminder of the role rail played in forging our nation. Want a little more history? 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.
