Hey guys, I'm thinking about making the pilgrimage for our honeymoon. We're thinking about going to the opener. How's stadium parking? Expensive but available? Is Sheboygan a decent town to stay if we can't find anything closer?

Appleton is the place to stay. there's loads of parking, and it's not expensive. i think most (or all) of the Lambeau parking lot is contracted out, but there are plenty of parking spots.


p.s. if your wife is excited to go to a Packer game for your honeymoon, i think she's a keeper. Good luck to you.

Call the Packers. Ever since the renovation parking policies have varied year to year. Last year you could not park at Lambeau unless you had a pass.

My web site has other options for parking, you can park for free just a few blocks from the stadium:

LOL. I'm doing the same thing for my honeymoon. Going out to Green Bay when the Bears come to town. We've been to Green Bay before; last year we went to the Lions game, but this will be the first game we attend as man and wife.

Crazy, I wonder how many other people make Green Bay their honeymoon destination :icon_smile:

We went to a preseason game for our 2nd year anniversary.

The day we were married, that evening i and my best man went to my motel room and watched the Packers beat Dallas 21-17, while my new wife sat and talked with the maid of honor.

A lot of times Appleton motels are booked by this time of the year. I usually stay at Oshkosh. It is only about 40 minutes or so depending on the traffic. (3 lanes each direction around the Appleton area and 2 lanes each direction the rest of the trip.)

I always park for free in the streets and walk in 10-15 blocks. Go to Stadium View's outdoor party and grab a brat and then head in.
If this is your 1st trip or you want to get more of the tailgate ambiance then I don't see why you couldn't park in one of the parking lots that are just a little closer to the stadium.
I can not imgaine any of the tailgaters both those in the Stadium parking lot and those who are doing their own thing at other locations not inviting you to join them esp since you are from across the county AND honeymooning it.

I have looked at the Sheboygan motels in the past. They are about the same as the ones in Appleton thru Oshkosh just a few less.

Congrats.

Hey Veg you deserve some appreciation for your game day info.

You too F4E for making your honeymoon trip to Mecca! Well done. My wife and I went to St Louis but we knew the team was going to open the season in Houston. that was alright. We caught the game on the tv and the venues weren't too crowded with the other fans.

I let everyone at work know I was going to be on vacation. I said I would be making my inaugural pilgrimage to the Holy Land of Green Bay, WI.

They all rolled their eyes.
