GREEN BAY GETAWAY

If you ask us, Green Bay is such an underrated destination! We love to visit to cheer on the Packers, but there is so much more to this city than just game days. We spent a weekend exploring more of what it has to offer and came to the conclusion that Green Bay has an impressive food and brewery scene, lots of activities, and a fascinating history! Here are our recommendations for a Green Bay Getaway!  

This post is sponsored by Discover Green Bay, but all opinions are our own. 


This travel guide is great for a weekend full of Packer history, food, and drinks. If you are interested in traveling to Green Bay with your dog or checking out more of the craft brewery scene, I’d recommend checking out Dog-Friendly Places to Visit in the Green Bay Area.



FRIDAY NIGHT 

Fox Harbor Pub & Grill: 348 S Washington St, Green Bay, WI 54301

We arrived on Friday hungry and excited to be back in the area. We couldn’t wait to put more of Green Bay’s food scene to the test, this time with a fish fry! We kicked off the weekend at Fox Harbor Pub & Grill. As we walked in, we saw that it was busy and seat yourself. They are located right on the river and even have a patio out back. We made our way to the bar, grabbed a drink, and started to scope out a table. You could eat at the bar, but we were actually lucky enough to get a table very quickly. We ordered the clam chowder and the perch fish fry, and it was all very impressive! The soup was great and not overly thick. The perch fry came with 6 pieces of perfectly crispy fish, french fries, coleslaw, and rye bread. We were very impressed by this fish even though it wasn’t beer battered. The breading was thick, crispy, and flavorful for every bite. We completely understand why it is such a popular spot! 



Nicky’s Lionhead: 331 Main Ave, De Pere, WI 54115

On our way back to the hotel, we stopped at Nicky’s Lionhead in Downtown De Pere for an after dinner drink. They have a fun cocktail menu, and I really enjoyed my Thin Mint Martini! 


Kress Inn: 300 Grant St, De Pere, WI 54115

We returned to our room at Kress Inn in De Pere nice and full. This charming hotel is located right next to the beautiful St. Norbert’s College campus and is walking distance to bars and restaurants in downtown De Pere. Our suite was so cozy, and they even offered a yummy free breakfast! 



SATURDAY

Mulva Cultural Center: 221 S Broadway, De Pere, WI 54115

With a big day ahead of us, we knew we needed to kick start it with a little caffeine! We went to Mulva Cultural Center right when they opened to get our fix. Mulva has a charming cafe called Savor that serves pastries for breakfast as well as some light lunch options. The space is gorgeous with beautiful architecture and floor to ceiling windows that look out at the Fox River. They host rotating exhibits and are currently featuring a dinosaur safari. We got to dine right next to one of the prehistoric creatures! 



Loco Wisco: 112 N Washington St, Green Bay, WI 54301

After breakfast, we made the short drive from Downtown De Pere to Downtown Green Bay to check out Loco Wisco! This Wisconsin themed store is so cute and allows you to shop over 140 local makers in one spot. There are beautiful prints, cheeses, gear and treats for your pets, clothing, cribbage boards, and so much more! 


Packers Pro Shop: 1265 Lombardi Ave, Green Bay, WI 54304 

After shopping, it was time to make our way over to Lambeau Field, where we would spend most of our afternoon. We started by browsing the massive Packers Pro Shop. They really have everything–from jerseys and clothing to dog toys to cookware. Hayden is a die hard Packer fan, and we love to stroll through all the cool stuff!


1919 Kitchen & Tap: 1265 Lombardi Ave, Green Bay, WI 54304

Next, we made our way upstairs to the atrium to have lunch at 1919 Kitchen & Tap. This restaurant is located inside the stadium and is open year round! The menu is impressive and definitely leans into a Wisconsin comfort food theme. I ordered a Packers Punch, a fruity bright green cocktail, and Hayden got Curly’s Special Ale, a beer made by Leinenkugle’s named after Curly Lambeau and only served at 1919!  For lunch we shared the amazing parmesan breaded cheese curds (you must try them!) and the Italian Sausage Flatbread. The portions were large and we had leftovers even though we shared!



Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame & Museum: 1265 Lombardi Ave, Green Bay, WI 54304

Our Legendary Lambeau tour tickets came with admission to the Packers Hall of Fame and the stadium tour, so we checked those out first. The Hall of Fame & Museum are very well done! The franchise has a fascinating history and is one of the oldest teams in the NFL. It’s so interesting to learn how the team began, how Lambeau Field came to be, about the legends that used to play and coach there, and how the Super Bowl Trophy got named after a Packers head coach. If you love history or football (or both!), you will be very impressed by this museum! 



Legendary Lambeau Stadium Tour:  1265 Lombardi Ave, Green Bay, WI 54304

It was finally time for us to go on the Legendary Lambeau tour, and we couldn’t have been more excited! Lambeau Field is an iconic destination in itself–even when there’s not a game going on! People come from all over the world to see this amazing stadium and learn about Packer history. The tour is over two hours long and a mile and a half of walking–and in our opinion, it is worth every minute and step! Our tour guides Pat and Rick were great and took us all over the stadium. You get to see some luxury suites, go up to the rooftop, sit in the end zone club seats, visit the press box, enter the visiting team’s locker room, and run through the players tunnel onto the side lines. It was so impressive and really incredible to see all the angles and seats we might never be able to experience on game day. And don’t get me wrong, there is no such thing as a bad seat at Lambeau…we just learned that some are way more luxurious than others! I highly recommend this tour; add it to your bucket list! 



Titletown: 1065 Lombardi Ave, Green Bay, WI 54304

After the legendary tour, we made the very short walk over to Titletown. This is a unique plaza-like area with a hotel and restaurants that always seems to have events going on. There was live music when we arrived, and we learned of the Titletown Crawl. We got a free punch card that had 5 stops on it: Hinterland Brewing, The Turn, Lodge Kohler, Belair Cantina, and 46 Below Cafe. We made our way to each stop and, after making a purchase, we were able to get our cards punched. Along the way, we stopped to play some games and to take the fun photo ops. After getting all five punches, we turned in our card for prizes and entry to the raffle. Hayden picked a trucker hat and I took a winter hat! 


BeirGloos at Howard Commons: 2750 Howard Cmns, Howard, WI 54313

Our next stop of the evening was the BeirGloos at Howard Commons! This beer garden is very cute with fireplaces, an ice skating rink, and of course beer, wine, and snacks. Our BeirGloo was so cozy and fully stocked with a heater, blankets, and board games. Hayden and I grabbed a drink and played several rounds of heads up–it was so much fun! Even if you can’t visit the Igloos, the beer garden seems to have year round fun. In the warmer months, they sub out the ice rink for a roller rink and even have a splash pad for kids! 



Stella’s: 401 Main Ave, De Pere, WI 54115

After a long day of adventures, we were hungry! We stopped back at the Kress Inn to freshen up and then walked over to Stella’s in Downtown De Pere for dinner. If you’re looking for yummy French onion soup or pasta, this is the place! The portions were massive and everything was so good. We left completely stuffed and with tons of leftovers. I had the cajun pasta and Hayden had the shrimp scampi. The desserts sounded amazing, but we were simply too full from dinner to try one. If you eat here, let us know how the creme brulee is! 


SUNDAY MORNING 

Tazza Italian Coffee Co.: 109 N Broadway, De Pere, WI 54115

We woke up, packed up, and got ready for some breakfast. We made the short drive over to Tazza. This cafe has a cozy space and offers fresh coffee, a wide selection of tea, and breakfast and lunch options. They were super quick and gave us the fuel we needed to make the drive back home!



There you have it, our Green Bay Getaway! 

If you’ve never been to Green Bay, or have only ever been for a game day, I hope you plan a trip! Green Bay is a great destination to learn about the Packers, enjoy some great food, and enjoy unique experiences no matter what time of year!
