Green Bay is a city with a true love – the Packers. The team’s rich history is woven into the fabric of the town, and it shows – from monuments to restaurants, historical landmarks to new developments – everywhere you turn, Packers pride is on display.
Packers fans will be delighted to find that a trip to Green Bay offers so much more than just a seat at Sunday’s game. If you’re looking to experience all things green and gold, check out these stops around the city!
Experience the highlights of Packers history with a trip along the Packers Heritage Trail. Learn the fascinating story of how the Green Bay Packers came to be, and follow the trail around Green Bay to explore the birthplace of the Packers, City Stadium, and more. The trail can be walked as a self-guided tour, or taken by trolley for an extra treat.
For an even deeper look at Packers history, visit the Oneida Nation Walk of Legends. A walking tour of 24 monuments honors the players and moments fundamental to the Green Bay Packers program. For the full Walk of Legends experience, begin at the unofficial starting point, at the corner of Lombardi Avenue and Oneida Street.
A must-visit for every true Packers fan, Lambeau Field lives and breathes Packers pride all year long. Pay a visit to the new Packers Hall of Fame, packed with exhibits, memorabilia and trophies (including four Lombardi trophies!) to please fans of all ages, or stop by the Packers Pro Shop for an official Green Bay Packers Cheesehead.
Take a stadium tour and go behind the scenes like never before. Explore the ins and outs of Lambeau Field, and experience the thrill of walking through the players’ tunnel and out onto the field itself. A truly once in a lifetime experience!
The Packers excitement doesn’t stop at dinnertime! Housed inside a 1800s-era railway station, Titletown Brewing serves brewpub fare and craft beer in a fun, casual environment. Sample a flight on their rooftop deck, or enjoy their specialty Spicy Elk Burger inside the depot.
Immerse yourself in all things #4 at the Hall of Fame Chophouse. Committed to showcasing Brett Favre’s career, the steakhouse is packed with memorabilia, trophies and displays on the life of this Packers legend. The perfect spot for a post-game meal, the restaurant is located within walking distance from Lambeau Field.
And if you just can’t get yourself to leave the historic stadium, dine at 1919 Kitchen & Tap, located off the first floor atrium at Lambeau!
For even more Green Bay fun, check out the brand new Titletown District coming in Fall 2017. This exciting development is set to expand the Packer’s empire beyond the field – spanning 34-acres right next door to Lambeau, the Titletown District will be home to community events, festivals, game day activities, and year-round fun.
The Titletown District will offer lodging and dining options, and house a sledding hill with tubing lanes, ice skating rink, sports field, yard games, and more. The public park will feature a plaza, and will be the ultimate spot for fans to gather, relax, and cheer on their green and gold for years to come. Go Pack Go!
While at Lambeau, be sure to check out the Travel Wisconsin Supper Club concession stand!
