Be In Touch with Nature Near Green Bay

Green Bay ParksSummer time means more time to be outdoors. It’s also a great time for us to get in touch with nature. Along the east shore of the Bay of Green Bay, Bay Shore bluff allows visitors to see dramatic cliffs and rock formations. On the west shore, near the small community of Suamico, you will find several unique places worthy of exploration. The Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve has over 900 acres of forest, meadows and wetlands where native tribes once roamed. Thanks to local conservation efforts, this area is now a refuge for a wide variety of waterfowl, wildlife, and plant species. If you like animals, you can visit the NEW Zoo or the Sensiba Wildlife Area. There are also many local and delicious eateries in Suamico.  One of our favorite things to do is to grab a bottle of wine, a little bread and cheese and other culinary trasures, and pack a simple picnic. Barb at Astor House would gladly help you plan. Book a room at the Astor House Bed and Breakfast, and begin planning your summer vacation.
