Anybody going...?

Has anybody ever been? We have a group of 10 making our 8th consecutive road trip (Tampa, St. Louis, Denver, Boston, Dallas, Washington, San Diego)...

We have our game tickets in hand, hotel booked, and are starting to search for flights (these are not cheap).

We decided to stay in Milwaukee and have a party bus bring us to/from Lambeau on game day.

Any insight on this trip for those who've been???

I went to GB for the season opener in 2011 (Ingram stuffed at goal line on final play down 8). Imagine Laplace with a football stadium right in the middle of the town, that's Green Bay, WI.

I was there in 2012; a high school buddy of mine lives in the Milwaukee area and his rugby team's sponsor had a suite at Lambeau. A great experience, minus the loss.

Green Bay itself is rather small relative to other NFL cities. And unlike downtown stadiums, Lambeau is smack dabb in the middle of what appears to be a cosy/quiet residential neighbourhood.

Parking can be challenging in the surrounding area - I liked how the various schools/churches rented out their driveway space for fan parking as a fundraiser for the various charities/sports teams.

Certainly a place any die-hard football fan should visit, given the history, etc. Just don't wait too long into the season to visit. :D

I will be heading down with my cousin for the game. We are way up in Section 678. Any plans for meetup? I have never been to Lambeau let alone a road game.

I went in 2011 - the people are as friendly as Saints fans. We stayed in Appleton, and the bar next to our hotel did shuttles for like 20-25 bucks.

Abita was there giving out stuff, oddly enough.

It's a great environment though, so enjoy!
