First of all, congrats on your first trip to the Frozen Tundra. I will be attending this game as well. I had planned on going back this year if we made the playoffs, but since that seems unlikely, and I found a cheap ticket for the Lions game, I decided on that game instead.

That is really good advice from Cheesey. Also, get to Lambeau a little early, because they have sold out of the clip on seats before.

When are you getting there? If you can stay a few nights, check out the Larry McCarren show the Monday after the game. It is free on a first come, first served basis. They start seating people at 5:45 and the show starts at 6:30. Just show up to the Lambeau Field Atrium around 4:30 pm, get a bite to eat and a cold one at Curley's Pub, and head up to the Club Level(4th floor) to the Legends Room.

Also, if you are interested, Fuzzy Thurston's Titletown Tickets has a tailgate party that starts 3 hours prior to kick off, which includes all the beer, soda, coffee, hot chocolate, brats, cheeseburgers, and other goodies for $25. The food is inside the Resch Center, near Lambeau. There will be tables set up inside and out(no seating or restrooms inside. they do have portable restrooms outside)

For $45, you can get the VIP tailgate party, which has indoor restrooms and seating(second floor of the Resch Center), and an upgraded menu which includes grilled chicken and ribs, bloody marys, screwdrivers, as well as everything thats included in the standard tailgate.

As for bars around Lambeau, there are several. I like Champions Sports Bar. Its a newer sports bar, they have lots of tvs, and the food is really good and reasonably priced.

One last thing, do the stadium tour. They do not do tours on gamedays, but if you are going to stay a few nights, definitely take the opportunity to do the tour. The coolest part is walking through the players tunnel onto the field. It gives me goosebumps just talking about it.

Nice man. Enjoy it. Hope for your sake the Pack beat the Lions like they did on Sept. 14th.

Ok, maybe not. =P

CONGRATS Akamp!
You will LOVE it!
There are a few things.......one of the most important is: DRESS FOR THE WEATHER! If it's cold (which it usually is that time of year) it can be a miserable 3 hours if you don't wear the right clothes.
Also.......the seats are just metal bleacher seats. So spend the $5 each and rent the cushoned clip on seats that they rent to people on the way into Lambeau Field. WELL worth the 5 bucks.
If you have time, check out the Packer Hall of Fame, which is in the Lambeau Field Atrium.
Bring LOTS of money to buy souvineers if you can.
Parking on the stadium grounds is only for those with the parking permits, so give yourself time to find a place to park before the game if you are driving.
HAVE FUN!!!!!!!! :thumbleft:


Lambeau has bleacher seats?!

You'd think with the recent renovations they did to that thing they would've put real seats in there... Eh, I guess, it IS outdoors.

I know.........honestly, i HATE the seats. It's not too bad in the fall when the weather is still nice, but come the cold, it's terrible. The amount they give you for your seat is maybe 18 inches. Now put everyone in heavy winter wear and see what happens. The Seattle playoff game last year, i had an aisle seat (which i like, in case i have to go to the bathroom i don't have to fught through 20 people to get to the aisle). Anyway.......i had one of the clipon seats, and STILL couldn't sit decently. The seat kept getting pushed half off. And i was next to a young REAL pretty woman. So i couldn't push her over to get more room.
Anyway......i wish they would have put in REAL seats too. Thats the ONLY thing i would change.

Have a great time Sean. I went to my first game last year, vs. the Raiders, and loved every second of it. I even got to meet the owner of this very website. :D

For those of you who dont know me around here, I am a Northern California resident. So I have never seen Lambeau. This up coming season the Niners play a game in GB and I am trying to talk a few friends into traveling to hallowed Lambeau. They of course in there Niners gear and me of course wearing number 12 in Green and Gold.
So,... my questions are for you locals. Where do we stay? Do we stay in GB? Somewhere outside the city? I dont want to sound like money is no option, but we are old enough to pass on the $60 motels.
How easy, or difficult is it to get tickets (I think it will be 3 of us). Anybody know anyone who sells tickets. Good seats bad seats? Where to sit? Any advice tips or other suggestions would be keen. TIA - gijoe82

If you are planning on buying tickets out on the sidewalk before the game it is going to be a bit tougher if you are buying 3. They don't like to split up pairs and will charge you extra in order to do so.

If you need a fourth, I'll bite the bullet and ... I suppose I'll go with. Geez.


haha


I'd hit up the hotel's around the GB area because the GB hotels are normally booked solid.

Might be cheaper to stay in Appleton and drive up. Dunno. Here are some old usenet posts about what to do in Green Bay for first timers.

the bar is cool. never actually been to curley's.
restaurants: maria's: on broadway. authentic mexican. cafe espresso, on
washington. the loveliest waitresses around. angelina's. not sure what
street, right downtown. theyre only open some of the time. the wellington
is all right if youre kind of stuck up. there's some taverns on bay
settlement road that have great fish fries. you can try victoria's too, on
bay settlement. kind of a nice place to bring a first date.
kavarna is cool if you want to hook up with young, fashionable homosexual
boys. (sorry wailin, they dont have vending machines.) whats that place on
bellevue that has really good pizza?
i usually party at peoples houses and shit like that, when i do. im not
much of a taverngoer, per se. there's a lot of places on main street on the
east side where the young 'uns tend to congregate.
try the hinterland brewery, although it's pricey. whats that old railroad
station down on the river? never been there, but they tell me it's nice.
ill ask around for new years' party locales. is za's still around? heh.
take your girlfriend to SASS, on broadway. heheheh.

go to KROLLS across the street from the stadium on ridge road. also go to
BRETT FAVRES STEAK HOUSE. there are some things to do in the green bay area with kids, such as the NEW ZOO, NEVILLE MUSEUM, WIEDNER CENTER (they usually have shows.) PACKER HALL OF FAME.
one big thing in the area now are dinner theatres. you go to eat and see a
play. (the pitcher show movie theatre has turned into a gay bar.)
go to CAFE ESPRESSO on washington street on the east side for the hottest waitresses. go to kavarna on broadway if you want the daintiest young gay men. oh yeah, BAY BEACH AMUSEMENT PARK will be open soon. tickets for rides are like 10-20 cents. oh yeah and near that is the WILDLIFE SANCTUARY. and now they have all those go cart and miniature golf things across the street from bay beach, but those arent part of bay beach itself and are more expensive.

the last time i went to lambeau field i stayed at the green bay aloft. great hotel and around $80, very cheap for gamedays. they also offer a 24h shuttle service to lambeau field. i'll be back there for sure.

you can order tickets at packerfantours.com, unfortunately not at face value.

I usually stay down in Appleton and drive up for the game. Park on the street and wander around town before the game.

If you want a hotel room right near Lambeau, you have to order the day the shedule comes out. I think a room within a couple blocks goes for a couple hundred or so, and I think there's a two night minimum for most/all of them near the stadium.

Tickets for a SF game shouldn't be TOO bad on the resale market, since they aren't a rival, unless it's the home opener. You can usually get decent seats for $100-150 for most games.

If it's your first time at lambeau a trip thru the hall of fame and dinner at curly's pub is more than worth it, both really add to the experience. It gets expensive though so once is probably all you will need.

The stadium tour is worth it too. It's not too much money ($11) and you get to enter the field through the players' tunnel. It runs the day before and after games.

Where are you flying into? If Central Wisconsin Airport.. the traffic is lighter on Hwy 29.. making getting back out of Green Bay quicker..

Wausau is only a hour and a half away on 29 these days and you could get a ton more room for your money..

Thanks guys for all of your help and advice. Nothing (obviously with the schedule not even being out) is set in stone for us. I work agriculture so if its an earlier season game it might be a no go. I am hoping its in the month of October. Good month for me and the weather. If the weather is good, I am thinking of flying myself out there!
I will keep everyone updated. I expect to meet some of you if we do make it! And Zero, I owe you at least a beer for hosting this site and the games every week!

Wausau also has skiing, if there's snow.

I usually stay at the Bay Motel and Restaurant when I go to Green Bay. Its the best value I have found. Its $100 a night for the first two nights, and $45 for each night after that. It is also only one mile from Lambeau. (15 minute walk).
As for tickets, I would only use the local ticket brokers like Titletown Tickets, Packer Fan Tours, and the Ticket King. They won't rip you off. Stubhub is also safe, as they have a "fan protection" ticket guarantee.

Hi guys. My brother and I are planning a trip to the states. Right now we are planning on going sometime in September or October. The thing is that I could sure use some help with the planning. We are bringing our pops by the way, so its going to be a really manly vacation hopefully.

Nothing is set in stone, but me being a huge Packfan, we are definitely coming to Green Bay either in the beginning of our vacation or in the end. Right now Im kinda hoping that we will be around for the Minnesota game. Anyways, how do I go about getting tickets for the game? At which point in time should I buy them and what is the usual going rate for tickets - in other words, when are they usually cheap or fairly priced? Any recommendations as to where to stay would be awesome. Restaurants, bars and alike would be great as well. Tailgaiting ditto. No minors on the trip by the way, so thats not a thing to consider on the barfront. ;)

If theres any "must sees" I would love to know about those as well.

I know Im not the most active poster or lurker for that matter (I used to be a bigtime lurker though), but I really hope you dont mind helping a brother out anyway. Its my first trip to Green Bay and its my first NFL game and I cant wait!

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance bigtime!

Welcome to the forum!!

Tickets, as you know, are sold out on a season ticket basis. You would be purchasing your tickets from a season ticket holder, through websites like Titletown Tickets, Packer Fan Tours, or Stubhub.

Those are the three I would recommend. Packer Fan Tours, and Titletown Tickets are both locally owned in Green Bay, and reputable. And Stubhub is another safe option as well.

As for pricing, tickets usually range anywhere from $85-$200 or more. The marquee match ups (Packers/Vikings, Packers/Cowboys, Packers/Bears, will always be more expensive; while home games against the Bills, Lions, and Niners, will be the cheapest.

As for when they tend to be cheapest, you will just have to check often, as the prices can and will fluctuate.

If you purchase any tickets, you will not receive them until after August 1st, as that is when they are mailed out to the season ticket holders.

Websites I do NOT recommend, are Ebay, and Craigslist. With Ebay, people tend to over bid on the tickets and you end up paying way more than they are worth. And with craigslist, you just never know what you are going to get. The websites I suggested, are safe, reputable, and they will NOT rip you off. I have used Titletown tickets the most, as they tend to have the cheapest prices.

As for hotels, I have tried a few different ones and have usually went with the Bay Motel, as they give you the best deal, as far as price and quality. All the hotels in Green bay will have a two night minimum on Packer weekends. Usually the first two nights will be $100 or more, with any additional night being around $50+. One hotel I would not recommend would be the Road Starr Inn right across from Lambeau. It is over priced, and not very nice.

Or if you don't mind a 20 minute drive, you can stay in Appleton, which is about 25 miles from Green Bay, and the hotels are cheaper. I always stay in Green Bay because I like being close to everything.

Another thing you could try, is booking a hotel, and flight through websites like www.orbitz.com. Sometimes you can get a good deal if you book both at the same time.

As for places to go in Green Bay (bars, restaurants, etc) you can't go wrong anywhere you go really. The burgers at Bentley's are absolutely outstanding, I will say that.

One thing you will want to do is the Lambeau Field Stadium tour. They do tours everyday except for game days, and you get to walk through the players tunnel, and onto the Frozen Tundra, as well as tour the luxury suites.

Sorry for the long winded response. I am sure there will be others that will have suggestions as well. Feel free to ask an other questions you may have. I hope you get to make the trip, and I am sure if you do, you will have a blast!

A friend/former coworker who lives down this way is a season ticket holder, and some family are coming in for New Years. So my son and I are going to get the opportunity to go to the game (thanks to a VERY understanding wife).

This will be my first game watched in Lambeau (I've seen them play as visitors, with the game at KC being the most memorable as it looked like there was more green/gold in the stadium than red).

Anyway, figured this was the best group to ask on where to go/what to do. We'll probably fly in on 1 Jan. Any suggestions for places to stay, things to do (Packers-wise) Sat and/or before the game on Sun, keeping in mind, I'll have a 14 yr old with me?

And speaking of the 14 yr old--until a couple of years ago, Favre was the only QB for the Packers he had known for his entire life. He still wears his Favre jersey while watching Packer games (including the Minnesota game a couple of weeks ago). I've been thinking he might not ever get over the trade when going into the game, he was saying he hoped Minn lost, but that Favre played well.

Well, I think he might finally be over it. During the game, Brett was hit by one of the linebackers and planted in the ground. My son jumped up, raised his hand over his head, and shouted "Take that, Favre!"

I think it's time to get him an Aaron Rodgers jersey.
