De Pere – City on the Fox River

6-26-16

Downtown De Pere

De Pere is a city of over 23,000 located in Brown County and is a suburb of Green Bay.

We enjoyed lunch here with our friend Melinda who writes the blog, Wisconsin Historical Markers. We help with content for each other’s blogs with information and photos and it was great to finally met in person.  She is gracious and we had a good visit. Our lunch was at Chateau De Pere, a beautiful restaurant on the bank of the Fox River. The food was great too.

Loved the view at the waterfront too. People were out enjoying the beautiful weather of the beginning of summer.

Also docked here is the Fox River Tours boat, looks like fun! Maybe on our next visit.

After lunch we went around the corner to Voyageur Park to enjoy the view.
