First off, I wasn't sure where to post this. Apologies if it needs to be moved.

Anyway, I am trying to pull the trigger on driving to Green Bay for the final game of the season (1/1/12). Does anyone have suggestion on purchasing tickets (or have a connection)? I can go the StubHub route, but I wasn't sure whether there's a smarter way to do it. My girlfriend and I (and our dog) will be coming back from XMas break and will be staying there Saturday and Sunday. All we need left are the tickets.

Any suggestions? In general we are looking to save money any way we can, so "good" seats aren't in our budget -- though any seat in Lambeau Field is a good one. Also, if anyone wanted to meet up and throw back a few I'm sure that can be arranged.

My dad used to get tickets from a liquor store on Velp called Grzecks. They are nice folks.

See this is what I'm talking about, because I can get some booze and kill two birds with one football.

Dad and family, we used to live nearly right across the street from it at 941. I'd give him a call and inquire. It's been a few years since we got tickets from him, but I'm sure he'll be able help you.

A buddy of mine (who is a Saints fan) have agreed that we're going to Lambeau for the NFC Championship Game should it be between the Packers and Saints. We're both fairly confident this game will happen and since we're buying tickets on refundable airline miles anyway, we think we're going to book our flights in the next week.

I don't have a specific focus, so I was just looking for general tips from locals and people who have traveled to Green Bay for a game before. We have to fly Southwest, so we can't do direct to GB (looking to fly in on Friday night to MIL or CHI and spend a night there before heading to GB on Saturday).

What are the best travel options for getting between those cities? What are the "must-do's" once we get to GB? Any advice on the best way to go about securing tickets for the Championship Game? We've already booked a room at Super 8 in GB for $180/night, but we can stay in Appleton for about $80/night. Do the hotels in Appleton have transportation to GB or would our cost savings basically be eaten up by cab fare? Any other general tips or advice you'd give to someone visiting the city for his first time? (What advice would you have to keep two born and raised Houston and Southern Louisiana boys from freezing to death in frigid, late-January GB weather?)

Any tips you guys have would be much obliged.

Thanks,
Matt

If you fly in to Milwaukee and don't want to rent a car, you can take a bus to Green Bay. It takes 2,5h and about $25 one way. But please be aware, that it goes only once a day. I don't know the schedule Milwaukee-Green Bay, but Green Bay-Milwaukee is at 6.15 am every day. If you decide to Fly in to Chicago, it takes you additionally 1,5h and $20 one way by train. Just visit www.amtrak.com for further information on the schedule.
In Green Bay you have to pay gameday price for cabs on gameday and the night before. That means you pay $25 one way, doesn't matter if you have to go 1 mile or 5. Of course you have to do the Stadium tour and the Hall of Fame tour at Lambeau Field. Combination of both is $25. From bars perspective, I think Stadium View and Curly's Pub is a must see, but there are several other nice bars to stay around the Stadium (Anduzzi's, The Bar .....).

I heard there's a bus from Appelton to Green Bay at gamedays, but I'm not sure about the price and schedule. I only heard it leave right after the game which will cost you the option of attending after game parties.

Enjoy your stay in Titletown, you'll love it.

Thanks for the info. We booked our flights this morning. We decided to fly in and out of Milwaukee and rent a car. Booked a room at the Super 8 by the stadium in GB. We'll check out the places you mentioned. Now all that's left is the Pack making it to the NFC Championship Game.

Our trip is booked with the exception of a hotel in Milwaukee on Friday the 20th. Heading up with two friends, both in their late 20's to early 30's, so we're looking for a hotel within walking distance to several bars that the young professional crowd might frequent. Any suggestions on what part of town we'd be best off staying in?

Me and my bro reeally want to go to a game in GB this year or next.

The plan would be to fly in on a Friday/Saturday, and leave Sunday night.

Where should we land? I don't imagine GB has an airport, We'll be flying from Seattle and am clueless about Wisconsin.

Where should we stay?

Where should we eat? (Important)

Stadium tour? Is it worth the $10?
