GREEN BAY — From snow tubing and skiing to delicious dining, there’s plenty to do and discover in charming Green Bay. Plan your visit during the winter months to experience these favorite frosty activities.
Find Frozen Fun at Titletown
Believe it or not, there’s even more to visiting Lambeau Field than cheering on the Green Bay Packers – the grounds of next door Titletown are their own sacred tundra, especially during the winter. There’s plenty of outdoor fun to be had, including an ice-skating rink, tubing lane and a full-sized football field, and fans of all ages are sure to get a thrill from a tube ride down Ariens Hill. If your preferred winter speed is a bit slower, check out The Rink at Titletown. Hit the ice on a pair of rental skates or, for a creative (and Instagram-friendly) option, an ice bike!
Ski and Hike at the Brown County Reforestation Camp
Green Bay is home to the perfect winter recreation playground, the Brown County Reforestation Camp. Featuring almost 1,600 stunning acres and home to Green Bay’s NEW Zoo, this local hot spot offers picturesque trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, fat tire biking and even horseback riding. An on-site lookout tower provides an incredible view of this winter wonderland, where you’ll find miles of cross-country ski and snowmobile trails that are groomed throughout the season. Fat tire bikes are available for rent as well – find them at the ski lodge just south of the zoo.
Wander Through Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary
A little bit of snow won’t stop nature lovers from spending time outdoors. Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary boasts 700 acres of stunning urban wildlife refuge in the heart of Green Bay. Over six miles of hiking areas and trails for walking, snowshoeing and even cross-country skiing are available on the grounds, as well as plenty of opportunities for viewing turkeys, deer, coyotes and other wildlife. Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary admits over 4,000 orphaned or injured animals every year, rehabilitating them with the goal of releasing as many as possible back into the wild. Be sure to visit the Observation Building for a peek into the care of the injured animals
Grab a Bite to Eat
Located in Luxembourg, Joe Rouer’s is truly a hidden (and delicious) Green Bay area gem. While the atmosphere may be casual, the food is truly spectacular – you can’t go wrong with the melt-in-your-mouth onion petals or a juicy cheeseburger. For an upscale option, don’t miss a meal at the Republic Chophouse. This stylish steakhouse and lounge offers a modern, chef-inspired menu featuring classic dishes such as rib-eyes and lamb chops with an elegant twist.
Experience Luxury at Lodge Kohler
For an ideal relaxation retreat, look no further than the Kohler Waters Spa at Lodge Kohler. Whether you’re looking to recharge from the daily grind or just simply get away, the Kohler Waters Spa is an elegant oasis featuring a variety of treatments to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit. After all, there really are very few things that a massage and a facial can’t fix.
Extend your experience by spending the night at the adjoining resort. Featuring 144 guest rooms with custom-designed Kohler bathrooms and signature bath and beauty products, Lodge Kohler is the perfect place to indulge in luxury, fine dining (try the on-site restaurant and rooftop bar) and refinement in Green Bay. And an added bonus? Many of the suites overlook sacred ground – Lambeau Field – so you can feel like part of the Packers action even if you aren’t in the stands.
