downtown De Pere When you stroll the streets of De Pere, you'll be surrounded by 19th Century buildings that line the city's main street, and bustling storefronts filled with boutique shops, cafés, galleries and other wonderful curiosities. This small town is nestled on both sides of the Fox River, linked by an award-winning bridge above the oldest dock lock on the 150 year-old river system. Take a relaxing stroll on the newly-created Riverwalk and Wildlife Viewing Area path that begins inside Voyageur Park. In the heart of the community is St. Norbert College, a 2,200-student campus recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top 10 "Best National Liberal Arts Colleges" in 2013. In addition to its academics, the college's sports teams have reached national acclaim, including its National Champion NCAA Division III men's hockey team.

Trendy boutiques like Azure Contemporary Fashion & Accessories and The Puddle Duck/ Suite 116 Gifts will satisfy the clothes shopper. Don't forget to stop at Seroogy's Chocolates for delectable gifts of chocolate, coffee, nuts and candies. 30 | Guys, don't worry, there's plenty of recreation for you too. De Pere has three boat launches on the Fox River. Whether you're jet skiing, kayaking or headed out to the Bay of Green Bay, you will find ample parking and well-maintained docks. Back on shore, grab a burger at Legend's Brewhouse, or pick up the ladies from their shopping excursion and head over to Café Chanson for some of the best French cuisine you'll ever eat. Community events take place throughout the year. With warm weather comes the seasonal kick start at Voyageur Park when the Celebrate De Pere music stage is set.
