Visitors of all ages will fall in love with everything that Suamico has to offer!
Suamico is a growing village located on the far north side of Green Bay’s metro area. What started as a small fishing community now covers almost 60 square miles! It’s actually the largest village in the United States when you consider both land and water areas. Despite this claim to fame, it’s still very much a hidden gem. Don’t worry, though. Ask any local and they’ll eagerly share their favorite Suamico destinations and landmarks with you.

A DAY WITH THE KIDS
Suamico is the perfect place to plan a fun-filled day with the kids! Start by booking a room or suite at the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Green Bay North. The kids will have the time of their lives splashing around in the heated indoor pool as you unwind in the hot tub or squeeze in a quick run at their on-site fitness center. In the morning, fuel up on their free (and super filling) hot breakfast before you head out for the day!
Your first stop should definitely be the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park. It’s one of Greater Green Bay’s most popular attractions, and once you get there, you’ll see why! The zoo is open 365 days a year and has hundreds of animals, a children’s petting zoo, interactive animal feeding experiences, and so much more!
On the same grounds as the zoo is the Adventure Park. If you’re feeling brave, race your kids on the side-by-side 1,000 foot long zip lines or try out the 36’ tall climbing wall. Watch as your little ones channel their inner “ninja warrior” on the extensive ropes course with 17 different challenging elements! There’s something for all ages and abilities, and their state-of-the-art safety system ensures a comfortable experience for everyone.
After the kids (and you) are all worn out from your day at the zoo, refuel with a trip to The Candy Bar. This adorable candy shop is filled with hand dipped chocolates, gummy candies, fudge, toffee, hundreds of retro candies… basically anything you could possibly imagine or want in the sweets category. Hot tip: their handmade caramels are made from a recipe that’s over 150 years old, so be sure to take some home with you
SIP BACK AND RELAX
At the end of a long day of exploring, you might want to unwind with a pint of locally made craft beer. At the Ahnapee Brewery taproom in Suamico, they have 16 different brews on tap, many newly released and never before brewed. You’re sure to find a new favorite (or two) here!
If wine is more your thing, stop in at The Bottle Room. This place is so much more than a wine bar. Their tapas menu is out of this world! For bigger appetites, they also have a full food and dessert menu and they even have a cigar menu if you want to enjoy a little tobacco with your vino! This place is a beloved favorite among the local crowd.
TAKE A HIKE
Surrounding the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park is the Brown County Reforestation Camp, which contains nearly 1,600 acres of trails, playgrounds, picnic areas and ponds. For the outdoor enthusiast, the scenic trails provide ample opportunities for hiking, biking and even horseback riding. In the winter months, the trails are groomed for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. The Brown County Rifle Range is also located within the Reforestation Camp, and assistance and spotters are available to help you perfect your shot.
The L.H. Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve is another amazing place in Suamico to get out in nature and enjoy a wide variety of waterfowl, wildlife, and plant species. Here, you’ll find 9 miles of scenic trails for year-round hiking. They are also groomed for cross-country skiing in the winter months. Stop into the West Shores Interpretive Center and experience their hands-on exhibits or check out the Sensory Woods, an innovative project that aims to connect people of all abilities to the many exciting sensations that exist in nature.
