NEIGHBORHOODS



Living in and around Green Bay

Green bay is essentially quiet, small-town living. Opinions of Downtown living are varied. Despite some gritty areas, the city has a reputation for being generally clean and pleasant—not to mention completely dominated by Packer fever in season. The East Side’s Astor Historic District offers all the big, old historic homes you’d imagine. It’s a well-maintained neighborhood that’s near the river and has good shopping. Suburban Green Bay living has to start with mention of De Pere. Its quaint downtown spans both sides of the Fox River. Interestingly, De Pere has two school districts with separate tax rates, one for the eastside and one on the west side. Suamico is starting to get some traction as a desirable suburb. A community that was originally known for its farmlands is beginning to see some nice shops, homes and restaurants.
