With so much to offer, it’s hard to put a finger on what exactly makes Brown County the perfect destination to get away from it all. Could it be the beauty of the rolling countryside, the grand waters of Lake Michigan and Green Bay, the rich European and Native American heritage, the thrill of cheering crowds and exciting sports or even the grand maritime traditions? In a word, yes.
Home to the oldest settlement in the Midwest, Green Bay thrives off the rich, historical traditions forged by Jean Nicolet and those who have followed him. European settlers from Germany, France, Bohemia, Belgium, Ireland, Poland and Scandinavia brought their rich cultural traditions to create a true American melting pot. Packer Country’s rich ethnic heritage continues to grow and diversify, but never forgets its roots as European influences can still be seen in the region’s unique architecture, festive celebrations and smiling faces.
