    I live in Erie, PA and have been a lifelong Packer fan. Going to be making my first trip up to Green Bay for the opener against Buffalo. Just curious to see if any of you guys had any inside tips on traffic/parking things to do at the stadium, etc. I appreciate all your help and Go Pack GO!

    NFL Ticket Exchange or you can try StubHub as well...I had to pay 100 bucks a ticket but I figured well worth it

    Lambeau Field is an experience. Eat at Curly's Pub, take the stadium tour and visit the GB Packers HOF in the basement. Have fun!

    Are you going the day of the game? Or the day before?
    If you're going the day before, then I strongly advise you do the stadium tour and the Packers hall of fame. It's fantastic, and also fascinating! Also, you should most def. tailgate before the game.

    Yeah you deffinatly want to bar hop a little best bars to go to is Stadium View and Anduzzi's, if they win the game I strongly suggest that you go to those bars after the game because they will be Packed and they will have live bands and all that fun stuff. Before the game deffinatly tailgate in Lambeaus parking lot. People at the tailgate parties very rarely care on who comes to there party just give em a tip and they will serve you food and beer, and if you want you should stop by my tailgate spot. We are in a big bus and its called Titletown SWAT, you are more than welcome to stop by and have a couple of drinks with us.

    ztro: Be sure to come back and let us know how it was for ya.
    Cause all too often we see these posts of "Coming to Green Bay. What do I do?" and the fans will give all sorts of tips. But then we don't ever read from that person again!
    So it would be appreciated if you come back and let us know of how it was for ya.

    I'm going to that game too... I'm so excited. It's a 12:00 game so we are going for brunch first ~ not quite the same thing as tailgating but I'm still excited. :)

    Save money on parking, park on 14th, 12th or 11th street (neighborhood).....Its an extra 5 minute walk, but it'll be nice out...

    I should clarify, its free parking there...but, now that I think, its more like a 10 minute walk at least

    If the JS still publishes Cliff Christl's food & drink recs it helps. Buit you can't miss having a good time at Lambeau.

    If you see Pope Vince when you are wandering around the parking lot, stop and take a pic with him. It's good karma.

    Pope Vince

    You got that right it is. I usually see him around the main front of the building 1 to 2 hours before game time :)
