I'm glad others suggested the HOF. If you have any appreciation for the history of the Packers and the NFL it is a must. Another suggestion would be to fly into Madison or drive from GB and take in a Badger game on Saturday if that's possible, have a good full weekend of football. Both are two of the best game day experiences in the nation, yet quite different. By the way, unless it's a real big game you can pick up 2 tickets for the Badgers outside Camp Randall the day of the game at about face value or less. If it were me I would take a 3 day weekend, fly into GB or close by, take in the HOF and GB on Fri, go to Madison on Sat, and GB game on Sun. You may need Mon. to recuperate but it will be worth it!LOL

if your looking for a hotel check out the little town North of Green Bay called Oconto, they have 2 hotels and its only a 20 minute drive. Now for the airport I would suggest flying into Milwaukee via Southwest or check into flying into Appleton on an airline called Allegiant, I flew my mom from Las Vegas for $119 each way

Appleton sounds to me like the best place to fly in. It's really only about a 20-30 minute drive, depending. Traffic can get congested on gameday though. Traffic to the south can be a bitch.

Lots of of cool bars in Appleton. It's a college town. Check out college avenue.

Wausau also would be a cool idea. Lots of outdoors type stuff to do there. Longer drive than Appleton, but it would very likely be less congested.

If you're college kids, see if you can network a place to crash for the weekend. And shit man, you might wanna really check out Appleton. LOL

Went to Kroll's East for lunch yesterday. Bacon cheeseburger with fries. It wasn't that bad, but when you order, make sure to tell them you do not want butter added ... unless you like'em super greasy! I think that Five Guys Burgers and Fries is better.

Why do you HATE the Green Bay Packers and their traditions?

I'm telling you, if you want to experience a great college enviorment get to Madison for a Badger game. ESPN, USA Today and Sports Illustrated all voted it the best college town in America. Being a student you may be able to hook up at each place,GB or Appleton and Madison, and lodge with other students. Badger Scout Forum would be on place to start.

I have taken a little time before responding to this post.

Is it just me or does anyone else find it a little strange that someone orders a hamburger, sticks cheese on it, has them toss on some bacon then gets an order of fries as well then has the audacity to complain that his meal is greasy?

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?



Raji--my son and I will be attending the 15 Sep game against the Redskins, our first trip to Lambeau. I searched this site for advice, and here's some of the links I found:

Exactly! Bacon, Cheese and Beef ... you get enough grease, why add a quarter stick of butter? Geesh!!
