January is a time when people around the world set new goals for the coming year. This year, make self-care a priority. We all know we can do everything better, if you just make the time to take care of yourself first. Easier said than done! If you are looking for solitude or quiet time with your significant other after the holidays, Green Bay has much to offer. Come and explore the thousands of miles of trails, many situated along the Fox River or in the Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve, along with a variety of other places. Green Bay has excellent conditions for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing this winter as well, so the cold weather isn’t an excuse to keep away. If you want an activity that can get your adrenaline going, try skijoring or ice climbing. Or, head down to Packer’s Titletown District, new to Green Bay this year. Their tubing hill and skating rink have quickly become a favorite for locals and visitors.
We know how important it is to make time for self-care, and also how hard it is to make yourself a priority! Take advantage our many winter specials, including the mid-week discounts at Astor House, and book your getaway to our Green Bay Bed and Breakfast today. (more…)

From the stunning fall foliage to the Packers playing in the Lambeau Field, nothing beats autumn in Green Bay!
