If you think Wisconsinites hibernate over the winter months until the snow and cold melt away, you would be wrong. Instead, we embrace winter and all that comes with it.

We encourage you to gear up and get out there!

Skiing, skating, sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice fishing are all part of what makes winter in Greater Green Bay a time to anticipate.

Plus, if we’re lucky, we get lots of Packers playoff games and maybe even a Championship. (We believe it’s possible every season. Don’t try to convince us otherwise.)

Finally, we step up our game on indoor activities at this time of year, 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 Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, cheer on D1 sports at a UW-Green Bay basketball game or gather a group for some unique entertainment at Green Bay Escape & Axe.

“One of our favorite things to do is to go ice fishing. We get up pretty early in the morning so it’s calm and cool and quiet and we head out to the lake or the river. We set up camp, like a tent with a little heater inside and drill our holes to fish in. It’s just really cool to be out in nature and enjoy the calmness.”
