You are so right about neighbors and getting out and discover Wisconsin, I have yet to attend a game at Lambeau but it is my hope that one day soon I can. We love our country and our community. They are health conscious and genuinely just love the high of crossing the finish line.

We all love and value what we have built and what we want to pass on to our kids and grandkids. Tabatha — Sconnie is kind of a newer slang term. I believe it started with a t-shirt company in Madison, and spread into the Wisconsin cultural-zeitgeist from there. Check this out — http: I just moved to GB 7 short months ago and find myself relating to this more and more.
Thank you so much for writing this… now if I could just put some of it to practice. Mary — it can be so overwhelming to move. Just pick ONE thing from the list and do it well, instead of trying to do all of it.
See where it takes you! My family and I are transplants as well. Fitting is has presented its challenges. The friends we have made have been the most genuine.
We miss Chicagoland and visit often. As we approach DePEEEERE we are refreshed and thankful we do not have to endure the traffic issues at least until our next roadtrip south of the border. I hear you regarding traffic issues. Every time we travel back to Indiana we have to plan around it. Jamie, I am also a Non-sconnie I have lived here now for 12 years, I am originally from Ohio a die hard Buckeye fan, my wife is a native from New London I love it here now.
I used to be a Redskins fan but have switched allegiances to the Pack, that and former Buckeye A. Hawk plays for them. You are so right about neighbors and getting out and discover Wisconsin, I have yet to attend a game at Lambeau but it is my hope that one day soon I can.
I have been to see the Buckeyes play in Madison. Thanks for the Article. There is no substitute for real beauty in nature. Not everyone has that luxury. New London is a great town — I know some wonderful people there. How fitting that you used to be a Buckeye fan.
One of the best fan bases around! I hope you get to Lambeau someday. Jamie — thanks for this article. My husband and I are moving to GB in October. Do you know of any resources to help us determine where to be? Variety of ages,architecture,convienient location, great schools,Target,Costco within a 10 minute drive!!!
Mature trees, home prices in all ranges. My husband is in the Army and trying to become a recruiter. Is winter really as bad as everyone keeps telling me? Or will I be ok with the right clothes? To be honest, Alex. Winters do get pretty long. Some are more mild than others. Last year it was a rough one! Thank you so much for this article! This is great to hear — my husband and I are moving to the Green Bay area in a month and have no idea where the best place to live is?
I want to be near a mall, lots of restaurants but also in a very good school district for my 11 and 12 yr old. My husband will be working near Bellevue. Thanks for checking us out!
A lot of the answers to your questions are pretty subjective. It depends on who you ask, what kind of restaurants you like, what is important to you in a school etc. I can tell you that Bellevue is a growing community and people who live there tend to really enjoy it.
Nearby De Pere is known for its school system. Ashwaubenon is where Bay Park Square mall is located, as well as many recognizable restaurants chains and franchises. KC is correct, anywhere you choose to live in GB will be somewhat close to the Bay Park Square Mall as it only takes you about 10 minutes to get there if you take the highway.
If you like shopping, I would also encourage you to check out the Broadway District downtown — very cool, locally owned shops and GREAT restaurants worth trying I speak from experience. Thanks for the write up Jamie and keeping up with the comments.
I am looking at living decently close to downtown minutes. I have lived in a few different places but am currently living in Baton Rouge, LA so I am sure there will be some major differences between here and Green Bay.
Any must dos to get acclimated would be appreciated as well. Thanks Kasey and Jamie!! That helps a lot! Is it close to the Bay Park Sq Mall you were talking about? Thanks for any input!! Green Bay Wisconsin is one of the worst places I have ever had to deal with, and I am only taking that from third party friends that actually lived there.
Attend a Packer Game at Lambeau Field? Those games are mostly sold to season ticket holders and getting tickets is very costly. They play around 8 games a year, other than that, Lambeau Field is a parking lot with a stadium in the middle and a bunch of infrastructure that takes up space.
Not only that, if you are not a Green Bay Packers fan, that is not for you…. I like the Vikings and the Bears, skip the Packers.
There is absolutely nothing to do downtown, and as usual, parking is a hassle. It is a difficult city to navigate. The surrounding areas have work, but most of the large, good paying factories, paper processing plants, and offices have gone out. Green Bay has the hidden nightmare…. So if you are at work or out of town and you forget about your garbage can, they act like the mafia! The City of Green Bay has no respect for the constitution and property rights. I know of a couple that went on vacation for two weeks and returned to find that the City had trespassed on their property and completely cut all of their decorative flowers and plants.
They claimed that they violated a city ordinance. They moved out of the city and filed suit against the City of Green Bay for damages for the value of their home, which they state is basically worthless as they have no protection from the city. The city has some of the worse codes and ordinances and makes the Chinese government look like saints. I had friend that came home to find his car missing from his driveway. He thought it was stolen. They never had a warrant to seize property and trespass on his land, and caused him financial harm as he could hardly afford to pay his utility bills because of paying the ransom to the City.
Further, he was harassed by the city after that many times. Wal-Mart, which is obviously a well known store chain, attempted to purchase and build a store in Downtown Green Bay, an area which is zoned for such types of businesses. The location that Wal Mart attempted to build on was previously a department store, and was a perfect match for zoning for a large retailer. Such activity caused Wal Mart financial harm, which invested millions in the design and development of the store.
There are a few nice areas around the lake, but why not just drive north on either side of the Peninsula?
Overall, I would describe Green Bay as a living hell, only from people that I met that actually lived there or tried to live there or do business there! The surrounding areas and nearby towns can be nice.
Probably the only positive thing I can think of about Green Bay is the city water is not as costly as Appleton. Oshkosh Wisconsin is an old city, much like Racine, but Oshkosh, at least so far, is a much nicer place to live with lower crime, and the city seems to be more friendly to business and citizens alike.
Other than a parking ticket over parking with windsheild side out in a public lot backing into stall which was relatively inexpensive, I have had NO bad experiences in Oshkosh Wisconsin. Appleton looks nice, but has high crime…there are alot of burglaries, thefts and robberies in Appleton.
There are way too many cops, and citizens walking in public are often harassed by police in Appleton. The city mounted cameras on every major intersection, and Appleton now feels like living in a prison, you have cops following you walking to the grocery store. I have been harassed at least 4 times, and I am a white guy, I cannot imagine what is like for black people in Appleton.
By the way, Appleton has no night parking…. I lived in Appleton for 5 years and became paranoid and had to carry surveillance equipment and install cameras in my house due to burglars. My vehicle was vandalized, sugar in the gas tank. But Green Bay is worse!! I would highly recommend that you stay out of major cities in Wisconsin.
Country is the best deal in the state. Property taxes are huge in the city, and in comparison to other states, Wisconsin has higher taxes overall.
But the burden of fines, fees, ordinances, and all the riff-raff that happens in the city, makes Green Bay the worst of all of them. Green Bay has nothing to do and between the crime and the city enforcing its rules and ordinances, I would recommend everybody avoid it. Go to a nicer place like Oshkosh or live in a suburb like DePere.
But I would avoid Green Bay at all costs. I keep seeing my comment dissappear by the moderator. I knew I had some work to do if I was going to make it. I thought there would be more to do. Get to know your neighbors to understand the culture My first examples of what life would be like here were from our neighbors. I wore my orange handkerchief and Bears shirt proudly, in a sea of green and gold.
