Over the next few days, I am going to provide a few sports-related posts on the blog for you. The first of which highlights a trip we took to northern Wisconsin this summer, as you have seen from several previous posts. I had never been to Green Bay, WI prior to the trip to Door County this summer and I had always wanted to see where Lambeau Field was. Lambeau, of course, is home to the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.
It is simply amazing that a town the size of Green Bay can successfully field an NFL team. I must admit, I am really not a Packers fan. Being born and raised in Kansas City, my allegiances for an NFL team still reside there. However, Lambeau was very cool. I could easily become a Packer backer. I took a guided tour of the stadium and saw everything from the fabulous concourse area, to a luxury suite, to the tunnel the players walk through, and even walked around the field. The tour was a whopping 10 bucks, I think, and lasted approximately 40 minutes. I learned a lot and I would recommend it to anyone, fan or not. Here are some shots I took that give you a glimpse of this fantastic facility.
Again, if you are ever in the neighborhood of Green bay, this stop should be on your bucket list. Most people will never experience a game seen inside Lambeau, so this tour is the next best thing.
