Green Bay and its surrounding region provide ample opportunity. Long known as a manufacturing, papermaking and food-processing center and the home of the Packers, Green Bay has experienced growth in the healthcare, insurance and tourism sectors of its economy. While the metropolitan population is about 250,000, the city serves as the trade, transportation and cultural heart of an increasingly diverse region of nearly one million residents extending across much of northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Green Bay is home to excellent museums, parks, theatres and sports-related facilities. It is the gateway to popular Midwest vacation destinations in the scenic Door Peninsula and Wisconsin’s northern forests.
