If you think Wisconsinites hibernate over the winter months, you would be wrong. Instead, we embrace winter and all that comes with it.
Skiing, skating, sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice fishing are all part of what makes winter in Greater Green Bay a time to anticipate.
We step up our game on indoor activities as well. It’s a great time to sample new-to-you restaurants, visit one of our many breweries or wineries, attend an event at the Resch Center or a show at the Weidner Center or Meyer Theatre, cheer on D1 sports at a UW-Green Bay basketball game or gather a group for some unique entertainment at Green Bay Escape & Axe.
There are way too many options to create a complete list, but here are a few examples of the fun you can find in the Wisconsin outdoors:
- The Titletown Entertainment District next to Lambeau Field comes alive in the winter months with a sledding hill (tubes provided) and ice-skating rink (rentals available). Enjoy hot cocoa around a bonfire and catch a laser light show set to music during the holidays.
- Want even more sledding? Check out the amazing hill at Baird’s Creek.
- Brown County Parks coordinates 196 miles of marked and groomed snowmobile trails.
- Ice fishing is a surprisingly relaxing and satisfying activity. There’s also the majesty of sturgeon spearing.
- Go cross country skiing or snowshoeing at the Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve, the Brown County Reforestation Camp or the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary.
- Walk through the magical WPS Garden of Lights display at the Green Bay Botanical Garden.
- Downhill skiing is a closeby at Granite Peak in Wausau or Nordic Mountain in Wild Rose for an easy day trip.
