Green Bay is famous for being the home of the National Football League's Green Bay Packers, but ask anyone who lives in the city and they’ll tell you there’s a lot more to offer. If you’re looking to get some fresh air, there’s plenty of opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy the many parks, trails, and gardens that are open to the public. On weekends, many locals also like to visit one of the several museums including the National Railroad Museum, the Children’s Museum of Green Bay, and the Oneida Nation Museum.
Many of the city’s vibrant neighborhoods are located downtown since it’s the heart of the community and where many events take place. The Olde Main Street District is full of arts and culture, where you’ll find several art galleries and exhibits, creative businesses and more. If you’re looking for local restaurants and exciting events, head to the Downtown District which is also known for its history. The Broadway District has quickly become a gathering spot for locals as many community events are held here including the Farmers’ Market on Broadway and the 12 Days of Christmas. Money raised during these events is reinvested into the area.
Real estate in Green Bay can be affordable, with 56% of homes in the area valued between $122,001 and $245,000. That said, the median home price is $143,843, so it’s an attractive city for young professionals or those who are looking to raise a family. Single-family homes account for 58% of the inventory and almost 37% of homes have 3 bedrooms. For those who don’t need as much space, there are many apartment options as well, accounting for 36% of the housing stock. If you’re looking for a newer home, it may be difficult as only 10% of homes were built since 2000. That said, 41% of homes were constructed between 1970 and 1999, so some small renovations and upgrades could help to modernize things.
