    ok so I viewed the schedule and I circled a some of the possibilities of the games I would like to try and make! I need your help to try and make this the cheapest trip as possible for me! I live in Houston and I understand that making a packers home game would be a long shot since it would unfortunately be the most expensive. but anyhow here goes my list!

    ROAD

    Tampa Bay

    Tennessee

    jacksonville

    minnesota


    Home

    atlanta falcons

    Colts - just because my fiance is a colts fan


    and YES I know we play the saints in the superdome, but I really do not like that city and the saints fans are rude

    I'm not saying we will blow out the Falcons, but I'd say that's probably the best chance to see a win, especially at Lambeau. I'm going to try extremely hard to get to a game at Lambeau next season, and that'll probably be the one I try to go to.

    No Josh....your not dumb.......Green Bay is small compared to every other NFL city, but they still are pretty good sized. How did you think the other NFL teams got there? "Horse and buggy?"LOLOLOL!!! :lol:
    The Colts game will have more demand, cause of the Peyton/ Favre match up.....IF Favre comes back that is. The Atlanta one SHOULD be lower priced.

    lol man that would be a dream to go to that colts game, but I have to be reasonable and settle for the lower price. I am really considering the tampa bay or tennessee trip though so far above all else. but ya hopefully somebody here knows about those cities a little bit. Which ever one I decide I would like to get a hotel right by the stadium!

    If you are going to spend the moeny to travel and see the Packers, travel to the Mecca. Go to the Packer Hall of Fame, old Hagermiester stadium etc. It is worth the few extra bucks. Hit the Falcon game or a honme game late in the season (many season ticket holders are older and usually give up their tickets for the winter home games as long as the game is not important.

    Look into Flying into Milwaukee or Chicago O'hare or Midway (south Chicago) The flights to Chicago are usually cheeper. Then you need to rent a car for the trip to GB (you'll need on anyway) it is a 90min drive from Milwaukee, 2:45 from O'hare and 3:30 from Midway.

    But, if you are going to a GB home game here is an important tip: Make your hotel reservations within HOURS ofthe schedule being released. The hotels fill up that fast.

    If you need more help, let me know.

    You will need to have it picked out by late March/Early April, as thats when the schedule comes out. And as Tripp said, you will need to book your hotel within hours of the schedule being released.

    If you DO get to Green Bay, make sure to let this site know! There are alot of people on here that have lots of info to help you! I read Trippsters comments, and he;s right on about it. (He's a smart cookie!)
    If you can't make it here for a game, a second option would be to make a trip up for training camp! You get to be up close to the Packer players, as many of them ride bikes or walk from the stadium to the practice field. Plus, the hotel rates are "normal", and not the price you have to pay on home game weekends. Then, you can see the stadium tour and Paker hall of fame too.
    Just an idea for you to kick around!

    hmm that is a GREAT idea cheesey! if I was to do that would you hit up training camp too? be fun to go with other people I know. those would make for some great pictures and I could load up on packers gear while in GB.

    Hmm....being as you are from Houston, wouldn't Tennessee be the closest one for you? (I don't have a map handy, so i'm not sure) That might help you decide which one to try for.
