Now more than 150 years old, the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is the only official Marian shrine in the United States. Along with that designation has come new developments to accommodate visitors, including wheelchair access and a special reception area for groups. Visitors can take tours of the small church led by representatives of the local diocese and are often greeted by a friendly dog that lives on the farm next door. WWW.SHRINEOFOURLADYOFGOODHELP.COM TROLLEY TOURS AND MORE The Packers tradition in Green Bay extends far beyond Lambeau Field; several Packers-related sites around town have been designated with bronze historic markers and organized as the Packers Heritage Trail. A local tour company, C&M Presents, offers tours of these sites by trolley that are popular with groups. More active groups can opt to take the tour via Segway vehicles. The company also offers food and brewery tours, performing arts and day trips into the surrounding area. WWW.CANDMPRESENTS.COM ONEIDA NATION Long before Green Bay was known for cheese and football, the area was home to the Oneida Nation, a Native American group that continues to thrive in southeast Wisconsin. Groups can take a tour of Oneida tribal sites around the area to learn about their history and see elements of their culture in person. Highlights include the tribal headquarters, a traditional organic farm, the Oneida Nation Elementary School and the Oneida Nation Museum. The Oneida Nation also created the Walk of Legends, which is a series of monuments along Lombardi Avenue that pay tribute to Oneida members who have played a significant role in Green Bay football. WWW.EXPLOREONEIDA.COM AUTOMOBILE GALLERY In the heart of Green Bay's revitalized downtown, the Automobile Gallery is a hybrid museum and event center that showcases an impressive collection of classic and contemporary cars. The gallery was opened in early 2016 by a local businessman and car aficionado inside an old Cadillac dealer- ship that had sat empty for many years. Visitors can see a variety of rare and vintage automobiles, including a DeLorean and a 1969 Cobra, as well as brand-new, high-end autos. The event space and catering kitchen also make the gallery a popular lunch stop for tour groups.
