Today is National Tourism Day.
We’ve mentioned it before, but it’s pretty easy to act like a tourist in Green Bay or your neighboring community and take advantage of the many things we forget about because we’re exposed to them on a daily basis.
Your local Visitor and Convention Bureau is a great place to start. They usually have a tourist guide that features many local businesses as well as events.
- Greater Green Bay Visitor & Convention Bureau 1901 S. Oneida Street
- Fox Cities Visitor & Convention Bureau 3433 W. College Avenue
Take plenty of photos or videos, but don’t go overboard. I luuuv taking photos of the kids, but I also don’t want to be stuck behind the camera the whole time, either. I want to enjoy the activities, too! I usually find myself taking a lot of photos at the beginning of one of our adventures, then sticking the camera away and taking part in the event.
With the help of our Kids Eat Free/Cheap posts and half-off deals from Groupon and Deal Chicken, you can eat out and at places you haven’t tried before. I know our kids really enjoyed these treats instead of going to all our “regular” haunts.
Create a passport for your “travels”. Click here to check out Green Bay-based blog Life As a Field Trip for more information and the opportunity to print Green Bay-based passport or a generic one. This gives the kiddos a souvenir of all the places you’ve explored. (Check out this long list of things our family did this summer with our “staycation” and summer passports).
