HOP ON A TOUR!
Guided tours are the perfect way to get to know the area and see the sights. Book a relaxing river excursion with Fox River Tours. Choose from either a private or public charter and float down a 40-mile stretch of the Fox River.
For something a little more upbeat and active, hop on the Foxy Pedaler! This “party bike” seats up to 14, and it’s more than just a bar-on-wheels—it’s a great way to see the city! Or, you can tour downtown on two wheels on a guided Segway the Fox tour (don’t worry, they’ll teach you how to ride it first).
Feeling brave? Put a little fright in your night with Green Bay Ghost Tours. Hear the history of Green Bay's downtown district and learn about the ghosts who still haunt the buildings to this day. During the tour, you can even enter a few buildings and use EMF detectors to try to pick up paranormal activity. Don’t worry, even though it’s a little bit spooky, this tour is family-friendly.
