    I expect the game vs. South Florida to be an afternoon game. BTW if you´re in Madison on Sept. 27 for the Badgers game you should try to make it to the Bears game at Soldier Field on Sunday.

    I have no idea if you have to be a student to get tickets there.

    If you don´t act like a jerk you should be fine.

    You need to be a student in order to buy season tickets from the university. You can, however, get student tickets from students via craigslist, Stubhub, or any other place people sell tickets.

    Just for the student section you have to be a student in order to buy tickets.

    You can buy student tickets from vividtickets, just can't buy student tickets from the university.

    I am a student. You could message me also and I could get you student tickets.

    Wpg GP#1 fan " Im coming for my FIRST ever Packers game October 2 vs Vikings. It costed me 1,091.00 for 3 tickets section 107, row 36. Are these good seats? I also got VIP all u can drink and eat, thru title own. It's expensive...But I need to be at Lambeau!!! I hope its as good as I'm anticipating which I believe it will.

    I can't wait to be part of it live with best fans hands down and see city of Green Bay. I'll be in city Sept 29 and leave Friday Oct. 3rd.

    So what's some things to do in GB or around. What should I check out?

    Let's Go Packers!!! New to board, I'm from Winnipeg Canada :)"

    I would suggest using the official website of Packers to get all the game day Lambeau Field information, including a diagram of the stadium.

    You will be able to find the location of section 107 on the diagram of the stadium in this website

    Here is the Website:

    http://www.packers.com/gameday/gameday-information.html

    Attractions to see in Green Bay:

    The National Rail Railroad museum which is locate about 2 miles east of Lambeau Field . All kinds of old Railroad engines and rail road cars and RR equipment are located there..

    Heritage Hill State Park located just few miles from Lambeau Field just off Wi. State highway 172 Webster Ave exit.

    A living history of Green Bay, which is. the oldest settlement in State of Wisconsin founded in 1633,. Some oldest Buildings from Green Bay history, which have been restored and relocated to Heritage Hill State Park. One of the building is Tank Cottage, which is oldest building in State of Wisconsin

    Bay Beach Amusement park and Wild life Sanctuary located on the shore of Bay of Green bay

    The amusement park is closed for winter, but The Wild life Sanctuary is open And there is not admission charged.
    There are Ducks and Geese swimming in the very large pond of water and they walking around grounds of the grounds of the Sanctuary . Many Species of birds like Eagles, Hawks etc. and other birds found in Wisconsin are displayed in Large cages at Sanctuary . Also There are some species animals found in State of Wisconsin in displays at Sanctuary.

    Green Bay /Brown County has a nice Medium size Zoo called NEW Zoo. It is located about 15 miles out side of Green Bay, Take State hwy41 north to the Suamico Exit and make left turn onto the County Hwy. follow the hwy signs directing you to NEW Zoo.

    Miami fans are trying to make a quick buck out of you because unless we (Jets) or Patriots come down their stadium is at best 50% full. When GB, Dallas, etc. come in, they can make some $ for the $ they lose when they play 25 of the 31 other NFL teams.

    No, I'm a Jets fan. Booked it with 5 other friends.

    Nevermind. Missed the Packer Fan Tours part in your original post.

    I"ll wave to the players, haha.

    I´m surprised you were able to book the Tundra Lodge without doing it over PFT. They normally block all dates for Packers home games there. You can still join the players autograph session for an extra charge.

    The indoor water parks are open year round at Wisconsin Dells. It´s approximately an one hour drive from Madison.

    I booked it at 7:45pm EDT, about 15 minutes before the schedule officially came out, after the Jets leaked out our schedule on their website. By 8:30pm EDT it was sold out. I will say that even by 7:45 the hotel only had 5 rooms remaining. Crazy how quickly it went. I laugh at ppl I see on Twitter and such saying they're thinking about going. They'll have to wind up staying in Chicago.

    It´s not that bad. But you would have to book a package with Packers Fan Tours for the Tundra Lodge to be able to stay there, which of course would cost more money than just booking the hotel (it does include the player autograph session, admission to a tailgate party and some other stuff though).

    Great job booking the hotel before the schedule came out. :tup:

    Yeah, I exaggerated a bit - but according to a buddy of mine who just booked, the nearest hotel he could find was 5 miles away. Saved more $ than I did, but I really didn't want to drive after I parked the car on Friday after a 14 hour drive until Monday AM.

    You're driving from New York to Green Bay??? Wow, that's dedication. :tup:

    I know that it's tough to get hotel rooms in Green Bay without having to book it through one of the numerous agencies once the schedule has been released. The Tundra Lodge is in walking distance of the stadium and actually one of the nicer places. Just don't drink the coffee there. ;)

    Tundra Lodge is ok if you got kids that want to play in a water park, otherwise I was not impressed.
    For my money the top floor of the Hilton Garden Inn is the best room in Green Bay.
    PLUS it's right next to the Stadium View.
