The Village of Howard is one of the foremost destinations for families in the Greater Green Bay area. Top draws include the community’s many recreational opportunities including trails, parks, the Nouryon Sports Complex, kayaking access to Duck Creek, the municipally-owned Village Green Golf Course and swimming and other activities at the Duck Creek Quarry open exclusively to residents for swimming and fishing.
Residents can also take advantage of the beautiful regional YMCA – for fitness and child-oriented activities alike – a beautiful wood-adorned public library with wide-open spaces and convenient shopping options. These include small, locally-owned Maplewood Meats with its long meat counter of grill-worthy choices, LaJava Roasting House for unsurpassed cups of joe and Zesty’s Custard, a family favorite for custard and delicious burgers. And for those must-do errands, the large Meijer, Woodman’s and Menards are conveniently located nearby.
Where you retreat at the end of the day is your choice, from a number of new, single-family subdivisions to condominiums and apartment developments in a wide price range. The Village of Howard is also conveniently located to both U.S. Highway 41 for trips north and south as well as Hwy. 29 for journeys to nearby Shawano for boating or other water sports or farther jaunts to the Twin Cities and other regional attractions.
