We are looking into a couple of jobs in Green Bay but are looking to live in a small, rural, picturesque, safe town with good schools within about 20 minutes driving time. Any ideas?

DePere comes to mind immediately.

I don't know how far Shawano is from Green Bay? Maybe check that out.

We were in DePere on Saturday. I can't believe how it is growing. It would be a great family place.
There are some great small towns around GB. You might want to come up and check some out.

I live in Wisconsin, went to college in Green Bay. Depending where you are coming from "every town in Wisconsin is rural". The area around UWGB would feel like a small rural community in itself, and still be in the city limuts. If you actually want to be out of Green Bay:

Onieda ( if you have a Native American Heritage)
Black Creek , Symore, New London (very small, just like Mayberry ...including Gomer, Opie, and Aunt Bee)
De Pere (Difficult to tell when you are out of Green Bay and entering De Pere)

Hope you like snow and very, very cold. I am moving away this summer.

Default Wrightstown

20 minutes from Green Bay and Appleton-- with easy freeway access to Highway 41.
Great schools (newer HS), growing town along the Fox River-- but still small and quiet.

What are you looking for as far as living arrangements? I have a loft condo that I'm selling-- that faces right out onto the water.
Let me know if you want more information.

Wrightstown is a great suggestion. De Pere is lovely too. The Howard/Suamico area is worth a look as well. I live in Green Bay (in the UWGB area mentioned earlier) and it doesn't feel like city living at all. We are just off the road that goes up to Door County (vacation area). My house is for sale. Feel free to PM me with questions about the area or my home.

Default De Pere, Wrightstown

YEs, Depere is probably the nicest....East Depere, but it is more expensive. Ashwaubenon is the only place with foreign language in elementary schools.
Stay away from Howard/Suamico. Very clicky, conservative and non-progressive.

I would recommend Seymour. We moved here with 3 kids a year ago. It's 18 minutes to Green Bay and about 20 to Appleton. The school has been just excellent. We have kids with some difficulties and the teachers and staff have been nothing short of incredible. It's a town you can feel safe letting your kids ride a bike in and a great community too.
