Get ready for all things Wisconsin on this northeastern road trip. We’ll start you off in Packer Country with a visit to Lambeau Field Stadium, followed by museums and outdoor fun. From there we head south to the massive Lake Winnebago, or north to the Waterfalls Capital of Wisconsin – or both!
Wisconsin’s third largest city, Green Bay is home to University of Wisconsin–Green Bay and NFL’s Green Bay Packers. Scenically set on the Fox River, Titletown features more than enough to see and do.
Whether you’re a football fan or not, a visit to the Frozen Tundra is a must in Green Bay. Constructed in 1957, Lambeau Field is home to the iconic Green Bay Packers – multi-Super Bowl Champions and pride of Wisconsin. Fall visitors may join over 80,000 Cheeseheads at the home field, while Lambeau Field Stadium Tour are held throughout the year. You can also head down the Packers Heritage Trail.
Take your new Packers bobble head over to other Green Bay attractions like the National Railroad Museum, the Neville Public Museum, and the NEW Zoo.
In case you picture the Badget State under a foot of snow, get to know the natural beauty of Wisconsin with Green Bay stops like the Fox River State Recreational Trail, Green Bay Botanical Garden, and Cofrin Memorial Arboretum.
From Green Bay, follow the Fox River – or better yet U.S. Route 41 – southwest about 40 miles to the impressive Lake Winnebago. Covering nearly 138,000 acres, the epicenter of Winnebago Pool is the largest lake in Wisconsin.
Explore lakeside cities like Neenah, Oshkosh, Chilton, and Appleton. Check out the Trout Museum of Art, the History Museum at the Castle, or Wisconsin’s second largest mall – the Fox River Mall – in Appleton. Head for Neenah for the Bergstrom-Mahler Museum, the Oshkosh Public Museum in Oshkosh, or shoot 18 at the Hickory Hills Country Club in Chilton.
Plenty of parties go down on Lake Winnebago. Check the event calendar for festivities like the Appleton Old Car Show & Swap Meet in Appleton, the Sawdust Days Festival in Oshkosh, and the Walleye Weekend Family Festival. Of course plenty of fishing tournaments, summer concert series, Fourth of July festivities, and big picnics are easy to find at Lake Winnebago.
This one should be obvious. Lake Winnebago is known for fishing – be it reeling in walleye to ice fishing and spear fishing. Other species shooting around in Winnebago Pool include crappie, catfish, bass, bluegill, and more. The Lake Winnebago area also offers boating and sailing, and beautiful parks with hiking trails, picnic spots, beaches, and more. Check out Lakeside Park, High Cliff State Park, and Menominee Park.
If you’d rather head north from Green Bay, move up U.S. Route 41 for a little over 50 miles until you reach Marinette on Green Bay. Known as “Your city on the bay,” Marinette is a beautiful northern Wisconsin city filled with small-town charm and plenty of outdoor fun.
Marinette is also known as the Waterfalls Capital of Wisconsin thanks to 14 area waterfalls found in several local and nearby parks. The city offers a self-guided Waterfalls Tour so everyone can catch a glimpse of Horseshoe Falls, McClintock Falls, Eighteen Foot Falls, and the rest. The tours is said to take a full day, so be sure to head out early for Veteran's Memorial Park, Marinette County Park, and more.
We haven’t had enough Wisconsin festivities just yet. Marinette events include Art for All, Theatre on the Bay, the Menominee River Century Bike Ride, and more. Stephenson Island is a hot spot during the summer months. Check out the Sunset Concert Series, and July’s Marinette Logging & Heritage Fest.
There is so much to do outside in Marinette thanks to Green Bay and the Menominee River. Visitors may picnic or play a game of catch at city park – or boating and fishing from Stephenson Island.
