From the stunning fall foliage to the Packers playing in the Lambeau Field, nothing beats autumn in Green Bay! Whether a drive along country roads or a stroll in the city’s park, you can see fall foliage everywhere. If you wish to see more nature, we recommend taking a short drive. Head north towards Sumaico and look for Butler Rock. You will find the best views at the Mountain Fire Lookout Tower. Also, be sure to take Rustic Road 8 between Flintville and Suamico. It wanders between stands of hardwood and coniferous trees, and is truly beautiful during Autumn. Alternatively, go south past Appleton to Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin’s largest inland lake. You will find breathtaking views from the High Cliff State Park and Ledge View Nature Center observation towers. The best drive is east on the ‘quiet side of the lake’.
