Where to Stay in Green Bay
Whether you want to sail on the waters of the bay, hike through state parks or enjoy a Packers game, Green Bay can accommodate. Business travelers will want to search for affordable hotel rooms near the city's downtown business district. A number of national chains have locations throughout the downtown area along the Fox River. These same hotels also provide family vacationers with convenient access to the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary, an urban nature preserve that houses an assortment of plants and animals. If you want to be close to the water, consider staying in Sturgeon Bay, just an hour northeast of Green Bay. The popular bayside city is home to a number of discount resorts and inns. For a more secluded vacation, head even farther up the Door Peninsula to the coastal cities of Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Sister Bay, Ellison Bay and Northport. Not only do these charming lakeside towns offer easy access to the water, but they're also within driving distance of five state parks. Finally, if you have tickets to a Packers game or plan to take a tour of Lambeau Field, compare rates at the handful of mid-range hotels located along Lombard Avenue.
Green Bay Hotel Tips
The Green Bay region is a great destination throughout the year. If you want to take advantage of Door County's beautiful lakeside resorts and the clear waters of the bay, plan your visit for the summer. Temperatures during this season make it prime time for fishing, swimming and boating. However, be prepared to spend more on your hotel. Resorts across the Door Peninsula raise their rates as tourist demand increases. If you want to find the best resort and hotel deals in the Door County area, book reservations before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. Crowds are smaller, and many hotels reduce their rates to attract out-of-towners.
Although late fall and winter temperatures can dip well below freezing, it is one of the best times to travel to Green Bay on a budget. The city's hotels and attractions frequently lower their prices. You can also search for Green Bay flight deals to further reduce your costs. Plus, this period is the height of football season, making it a great time to see a Packers game.

Green Bay Transportation
Green Bay operates the Green Bay Metro bus system, which provides transportation throughout the city. However, with ample parking and four major highways, most residents of the city rely on cars. Many major rental agencies have outlets in the city. Taxis are also available by phone. Those looking to explore the many sights of Door County can head northeast along Highway 42, which runs along the entire northern coast of the peninsula. A number of private shuttle services provide transportation between Green Bay and Door County as well.
