Default Congrats on Moving to Frozen Tundra!

Congratulations on your retirement! Green Bay is a wonderful place to live. A small-town atmosphere, but something for everyone.

As for apartments, there are many options! If you're interested in being near shopping centers, restaurants, and the movie theatre I would look at Ashwaubenon (which is technically Green Bay with a different name). I used to live on Pilgrim Way and absolutely loved it. I could walk to the Bay Park Square Mall and it took 2 mins to get the cinema or to any of the restaurants along Oneida Street. There are also some nice senior apartments in this area.

The only area I'd recommend staying away from is the East side. It tends to have rougher neighborhoods - for example, anything near University Ave, Winter St., and Day St.

Creekwood Apartments in Ashwaubenon are very reasonably priced, if that's a priority. According to Rent.com they still have 1 bedroom apartments for $400/month. If you're looking for the opposite end of town (the nice area of the east side) The Shores on Nicolet Drive are nice, they're close to the University of Green Bay and the rent is about $600/month.

If you prefer to be away from the hustle and bustle, consider De Pere, WI. It's a five minute drive south of Green Bay. The east-side of De Pere is particularly lovely, but the rents tend to be higher. Any of the Murphy Development apartments in De Pere are very well cared for and reasonably priced.

Hope this helps & Good luck with your move!
