I saw this article about Aaron Rodgers having to stay in Green Bay during bye week per NFL COVID protocols, and to say the least, he didn't seem too happy:

I haven't been to Green Bay, though I would like to go to a game there sometime. Outside of a gameday atmosphere, how is the town? Is Rodgers just upset about not being able to get away on a vacation, or is the combination of weather an city leave a lot to be desired?

Never been on game day, but it's a bit of a sleepy town otherwise.
100k in population mostly off by itself, that the NFL exists there is a product a bygone era.
I personally like Green Bay as a town. Blue-collar, low-key. Weather doesn't bother me, but not ideal for a lot of people.
Doesn't seem like the kind of place a bajillionaire would hang out for long unless necessary, and bye week is probably a nice time for a little getaway that those guys usually get to look forward to.
I'm not sure what to make of Rogers, but I don't follow the Packers at all.

He's fine with living in Green Bay & has said so countless times before. Read the article. He said "I look forward to the bye weeks. I look forward to a reset, recharge the batteries." He was simply looking to get away from football & business for a week.

If you've listened to Rodgers this season he's talked a lot about self-care & taking care of yourself by setting time apart to disconnect, be silent, journal, contemplate etc. That's not going to be as easy to do when you're still in Green Bay & blocks away from work. He has 2 homes. His home here is affiliated with working.

I'm about an hour from Green Bay. It's a nice place. Blue collar but decent places to shop. The river flows through town and there are some nice restaurants along there. We never mind going there. It is a safe place to live.

The old time Packers in the 60's used to go hunting and fishing on Mondays. I guess he's not into that. Too bad, as Wis is great for that kind of stuff.

I think he just wants to get away for awhile sorta like being cooped up in your house for 7 months with little to do. Don't think it has anything to do with Green Bay as such. He does have a 25 mill house in Malibu he cant use now not that I would want to visit California anytime soon but just saying. The old time Packers were great but a lot poorer than Rodgers and I'll bet his salary would have paid for the entire team back then.

I read this and I don't think he's trying to insinuate that Green Bay itself is horrible; my impression is that he wishes he he had more freedom to travel and do other things that he would normally do on bye weeks.

Ok, that was my first read, wanting to get out of town, but I could see how others might take it the wrong way as a slight to Green Bay. Still, I would imagine, even with a nice place in Malibu, he probably has a fairly nice home in Green Bay. With a lot of stuff being closed due to COVID anyway, he should just enjoy a relaxing week off at home.

I live in Door County, which consists of many small tourist towns surrounded by farms and orchards. It is gorgeous, but for any major chain stores, with about three exceptions, one must go to Green Bay, about 60 miles away., Green Bay is what I consider to be a very working class town (with the exception of one district of absolutely beautiful old mansions). The average home appears to have been built in the 1950's and most of them are small but are very well kept. (Before moving to Door County, I lived in two states where most of the homes that are more than than 50 years old and less than 1,500 square feet look run-down and in need of some serious repair/maintenance, in my opinion.)

However, there is not much to do in Green Bay, imo, although there are many lovely parks. We stayed there for two weeks while our home in Door County was being completed. There was only one restaurant we found that we would describe as "nice", and even there, the people were dressed very casually. I have found most people in Wisconsin to be not at all pretentious but are just good, friendly, hardworking people, which I appreciate very much.

Anyway, that is only my opinion. Here is a link that gives other opinions:

From June-September it’s nice. Rest of the time weather is too cold. Also there are not enough level 2 chargers for plug in cars, making electromobility a bit challenging. Hopefully that will change with the sale of Electric F150’s.
