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.

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..
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

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.
