    It used to be 1st come - 1st served as far as parking in the Lambeau lot. Is this till the case or do you now need a permit or some kind of ticket?

    Other good places to park / tailgate:
    1) Boyscouts / cubscouts usually have parking for $15 (cheapest I've seen / found) near BWW's
    2) BWW's will give u coupons for wings if u park there and dont have your own grill set up....
    3) K-Mart Parking lot is usually where we go... I think thats still first come first serve... lots of ppl show up the night before there and get the prime spots and camp though.... (ie vikes / bears fans) so beware...
    4) Locals have parking BEHIND KMart for around 15-20
    5) The Bar..... Cause its... THE BAR

    You need a permit. The place I tailgate for everygame is a vacant lot directly south of the stadium, and still in the shadow of Lambeau. This is the best place to get a parking lot type experience if you can't get in the lot. If you are going north on Oneida, take the last left you can before the stadium....its called Stadium Dr. Tailgating starts as early as you want. I wouldn't recommend getting there any later than 8AM. After tailgating is done I always like to hang out at one of the many Leinie's Lodges inside the stadium before making my way to my seat. Enjoy your first game!

    I tell ya, the whole Oneida/Lombardi/Ridge traffic thing is the toughest to deal with. I just resign myself to biking everywhere on game day.

    If you can't get into Lambeau to park, try crossing Lombardi. Shadow down to Biemeret has free street parking/cheap(er) lawn parking and some residents include tailgating.

    Have fun! There's nothing like GB on game day.

    Very true. The area around the stadium is easy getting into...but if you park around the stadium, expect to sit in your car for a few hours. This is why I always continue tailgating for a few hours after the game!

    There ya go!
    And I bet they have bike racks and it's free too.

    That's one of the things I love about bicycling to events. Parking is never a hassle.

    Although if he wants to tailgate its gonna be pretty difficult to bring a grill, food, and a cooler on a bike.

    For parking, I always go down St Agnes Drive. Just 2 or 3 blocks from the atrium you can park for $10 or less, especially for a "gold" game. Easy to get out after the game, too, because of fewer cars around there. Is this a local secret?
