I would maybe try Appleton, which is like 20 min from GB. I've lived here all my life and even though I would love to move somewhere south because I can't stand the long winters anymore..... I love summers here and it's not such a bad town.

Hardly any crime, everyone is basically white, downtown can be fun although it gets old after a while. Not sure if you're a big drinker but I would definately wait until your 21 before moving here because all anyone really does is go to the bars and any activities around here all involve alcohol, so if your under 21 you're going to be bored.

Hey now, not everyone on the roster is white. What about Ryan Grant?

packers4life, you haven't mentioned what kind of work you could do. GB has been based on manufacturing, but now that has been fading and there is not much left. There's a lot of food production, a large trucking company, paper mills. If you are into software and programming there is not much for you.
You seem to like the outdoors which will help as there are places for snowboarding and skating. Drinking is a big sport as there are more bars than most places, but you have to be 21 in Wi.

I don't think this post is for real...

In fact, I'd be willing to bet money on the fact that it's not.

The OP just screams troll.

Oh, and on the off chance that this is for real, I'll agree with what everyone else has said:

1. Green Bay doesn't have a whole lot to do. Unless you have a fake ID and want to spend all your time in bars.

2. It gets much colder than 20 degrees. And the cold, dreariness usually lasts at least 6 months of the year.

3. There aren't a whole lot of job opportunities.

Have you ever been to Wisconsin? Do you have any family here? I wouldn't recommend moving across the country to a state you've never been to where you don't know anyone...especially at such a young age.
