Day Trip – Bay Beach Amusement Park

My family has been spending the summer visiting friends and relatives throughout the state, so I thought I’d write up a few “day trip” posts! We’d love to hear about trips your family has taken this summer as well.

In early June, we visited Jess’ parents and spent a day with them at Bay Beach in Green Bay. Neither Jess nor I had been to Bay Beach since we were young – and nothing seems to have changed during that time! The rides are all the same – lots for kiddos Milena’s age (hooray!), plus a Scrambler, Scat and Tilt-a-Whirl. New this year is the Zipper Pippin roller coaster.

And the best part? There is no admission charge and parking is free. Ride tickets are $.25 each, with the rides requiring one or two tickets per rider. (Zippin Pippin requires four tickets.) That’s right: Most rides are $.25 or $.50!

Pony rides are $2 (no tickets), but well worth it!

Hours:

Open 7 days a week, 10 am – 9 pm. (hours change starting Aug. 22)

Right next door is the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary, a beautiful 700 acre urban wildlife refuge. This park is free and open to the public all year! (hours)
