Top Three Beaches in Green Bay Area for Summer Fun

Enjoy a Beautiful summer day and picnic at the beach in Green Bay, WisconsinAs far as sandy beaches, there are few that can compete with Kohler-Andrae State Park. Its stunning sand dunes, miles of golden sandy beach, and clear blue water make this beach a popular destination for both locals and visitors. It also has unique wetlands with many rare plants, some of which are only found along the shores of the Great Lakes. This park is south east of Green Bay near Sheboygan. If you’re looking for more places to visit, Cave Point and Whitefish Bay Dunes in Door County is another gem worth the drive. The rocky cliffs of the shoreline have underwater caves that are said to have ancient drawings. This is not only a popular beach but also known for scuba diving and kayaking. It’s a fantastic day trip from the City of Green Bay.  If you’re pressed for time, check out Crescent Beach in Algoma and Bay Beach Amusement Park in Green Bay.
