Metro Green Bay, WI - Homes for Sale and Community Information
The Green Bay metro area includes adjoining suburbs like Allouez, Howard, and Ashwaubenon. It also includes De Pere, a city just to the south. The Green Bay metro area is in Brown County in northeastern Wisconsin.
The area was first explored by Jean Nicolet in the 1600s. In the 1800s, settlements developed in earnest. The waterways were instrumental to commerce long before the railroad arrived. Many early settlers were of Polish, Scandinavian, or Belgian descent.
Of course, those that invest in metro Green Bay real estate will live in a community that is home to the Green Bay Packers. The success of the team over the years has caused Green Bay to be nicknamed "Titletown USA." It is the only publicly held team in the NFL, and it is located in the smallest city of the 32 that have NFL teams.
Lambeau Field is the home of the Packers. It has been expanded time and again to the point that it can now seat about 73,000 fans. The Packer Hall of Fame is located at Lambeau Field. Kids love the children's area where a radar gun will display the speed with which they can toss a football. There's also a re-creation of the office of legendary coach Vince Lombardi. One can even sit in the coach's gold vinyl office chair and imagine the conversations he once had on the dial phone sitting on the desk.
The waters of Green Bay have developed into a world-class fishery the past couple of decades. One can enlist the services of a fishing guide, if desired, to scout out the hot spots where lunker smallmouth bass and big fat walleyes can be found. The Bay was also stocked with muskies years ago. In 2013, a Green Bay angler pulled a 64-inch muskellunge from Green Bay. Although it was close to a record fish, the true sportsman photographed and then released this giant fish so that someone else might have the thrill that he did.
Along the west shore of the Fox River there is the National Railroad Museum that is open year-round.

Those that appreciate WWII history will be excited to see the very sleeper car that General Dwight D. Eisenhower used in the European Theater during the War. The museum operates an old coal-fired locomotive that pulls rail cars filled with excited visitors around a rail loop on the grounds.
