Hello -

My husband is interviewing for a job in Marinette. We have researched a little on line and there is not much up in Marinette, specifically housing. We want to rent a home (3 bdr, 2 ba) the first year, get to know different areas, and then buy. There is nothing really to rent that way. Green Bay is a little too far a drive to Marinette every day so can anyone recommend an areas between these two or maybe even north Green Bay. We want to be around usual amenities, restaurants, shopping (not necessarily a mall), Walmart, etc. Thank you so much in advance.

Peshtigo is known to have better schools than Marinette and it's closer to Green Bay (the closest major shopping area).

We are going to be moving to that are next year so I've done tons of research.

Peshtigo has better schools. Only about 10 minutes to Marinette, which has Super Walmart, a couple grocery stores, Shopko, and restaurants etc.

From Peshtigo to the north side of Green Bay is about 40 minutes.

Oconto is in between Peshtigo and Green Bay. There's a grocery store and a smaller sized Shopko. Schools were so-so. I think Oconto to Marinette is about 15 minutes.

The local newspapers are The Eagle Herald (Marinette), Peshtigo Times, and Oconto County Times Herald . I think they have classifieds online if you're looking for a rental.

If there's something you want to know more specifically I can try to answer even though we don't live there yet.
