Getting To Know Green Bay

The city of Green Bay, Wisconsin is tucked into the south end of Lake Michigan’s Green Bay, at the mouth of the Fox River. It was home to the Winnebago nation, the “People of the Sea,” who cultivated wild rice, farmed, and navigated the lake in canoes to trade with their neighbours. Green Bay was founded by Charles de Langlade, an Ottawa chief called the “Father of Wisconsin.” He established a trading post at Green Bay in 1764. The city was an important trading post for the fur and timber trade, and an outpost of the American military at Fort Howard, built in 1816.

Our All-Inclusive Visit

We’ll visit the National Railway Museum of America, dedicated to preserving the nation’s extraordinary railroad history, including Union Pacific’s #4107 (the largest steam locomotive ever built) and the futuristic “Aerotrain.” Traveling further back in time, we’ll visit Heritage Hill State Historical Park, a 48-acre open-air museum containing more than thirty of Green Bay’s historical structures, including log cabins from the fur trade era, buildings from Fort Howard, and stores and public buildings from the late 19th century. Live historic interpreters, wearing period style clothing, populate the park during summer operations.
