    Thanks for asking. It was awesome. Went to lambeau at 3 pm so I had a great parking spot. Walked around Lambeau a bit, drank a few beer with different guys. Feel like part of the Packer family now. :)
    I like it that the people around me were staying most of the time and being noisy. I know that from soccer in Germany. It’s usual to have a standing places in the stadium and support your club. So it was pretty amazing. Is it usual that Pack fans are standing or was it because of the cold weather?
    The game couldn’t be better. ARod made it a perfect day. :)

    Thanks again for your help. I’ll now stay my last days in Chicago and will laugh at bears fans. ;)

    It wasn't cold so no it wasn't the weather. Exciting games people stand. Preseason games is when people sit mostly. Or the blowouts.

    You have kids?

    Only 2 places I know about. Tundra lodge. It has an indoor water park. Northern theme is nice.

    There is also a marriot that is nice.

    Pretty sure you need to book 10 .minutes after the football schedule comes out.

    If you don't have time to tailgate which I would encourage people to do, a great place that serves brunch before the game is White Dog Black Cat restaurant. It is close to the stadium and the food is great.

    Hello,

    I hope this is the right place to post. Feel free to delete if not. I’m a Packers fan from Australia. My wife and I were hoping to experience tailgating and we’re hoping some locals could help us out. However, we have tricky dietary issues, as I can’t have dairy, onion or garlic (yes, I’m a cheesehead who can’t have dairy) and my wife is a coeliac (she’s gluten free). Does anybody have any ideas for me or are we likely to struggle to have the tailgating experience?

    Thanks for any information in advance,
    Stewart

    Hey guys,
    I'm from southern Indiana and am planning a trip to the Green Bay area this summer. What are some of the off the main road places that are worth visiting?

    Yes. I'll take about a week to just drive wherever I'd like in Wisconsin, especially the northeast.

    Yessir, should be hitting Chicago, Milwaukee, and then on up to Green Bay. May go a bit further North and West from there. Pretty much wherever the wind takes me.

    Hi guys,

    I am planning a trip to Green Bay for Panthers match. Looking at doing a stadium tour and the hall of fame the next day before my flight. Problem is, I'd need to bring a large backpack with me for the stadium tour as time will at best be reasonably tight for getting to the airport, and I won't have a car. Is this going to stop me doing the stadium tour? Or entering the stadium at all? Or is there somewhere I can store it nearby on non-matchdays? Bear in mind this will be November 11th, which is Vet's Day and so a public holiday meaning I can't be sure if local businesses who may normally be willing to offer luggage storage will be open.

    I will find a way to do the tour no matter what, but this seemingly small problem could trip me up in a big way if I haven't worked out a solution before I book up. As it stands I am unable to find a concrete solution that isn't silly expensive, time consuming (and I'll be short on time as it is), or both.

    This is the final piece (literally, I'm going home to Britain that evening) in the jigsaw of a trip I am very much looking forward to. Any insider knowledge or suggestions welcome.

    Scott.

    Just rang the hall of fame. For anyone with the same problem out there, backpacks are allowed on stadium tours! Problem solved!
