We went for the WPS Garden of Lights the weekend before Christmas. It was a beautiful experience in the snow. It's a nice walk through the gardens, or you can take a carriage ride. I've gone twice and it is a must for anyone who loves creative Christmas light displays.

Thanks to the many corporate sponsors to make this place so nice to visit over the holidays. You can walk or take the carriage and either way you can't help but be in the Christmas spirit.

The Botanical Garden is a great place to visit at any time, but it is best to avoid on very hot days because most of the best things to look at are not in the shade. Visited one afternoon in the summer, they had activities for the children and seemed to be a very family friendly place.

Found the Christmas light display on the Green Bay chamber website. Saturday night arrived about 20 minutes prior to the start of the tour and horse drawn carriage ride. Many people came early. Bought our tickets and it was recommended to get on the carriage ride first before the line grew. Great advise. There were 2 carriages at first and... More

We've lived roughly 1 hour from the GBBG for about 22 yrs now. We have been attending the Green Bay Botanical Gardens Festival of Lights for many years- When we began, it was a very small affair, but every year they add more lights and displays, and its gotten to be quite large & breathtaking ! My favorite time to... More

If you are in the GB area you must go to this botanical garden to experience the holiday light show. Truly impressive. Come early to park in the parking lot otherwise you will need to park off-site and be shuttled back and forth. You can either walk the grounds or (for a fee) ride a horse drawn wagon. I would...

My fiance and I had our first date here at the Garden of Lights 5 years ago. Last year at the Garden of Lights he proposed! This is a very magical place :) Would highly recommend!

Need to get away from anything or anyone, this is the place. Peaceful, butterflies to enjoy, birds to watch, benches to sit on, beautiful plants. And if that wasn't enough, the staff is friendly and helpful. Get yourself an annual pass and take time for all the different landscapes nature has to offer.

The gardens have many interesting plants and flowers local to the area. They also display a lot of lights at Christmas time.
