Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin

  Home of the Super Bowl 45 champion Packers

 

Now that the Super Bowl is over, the real party begins in Green Bay, Wisconsin; home of the winners the Green Bay Packers. Even if Green Bay is the smallest market with an NFL team, fans avidly support the team throughout the state. Though it is a somewhat small industrial city, it is also home to other fascinating places worth visiting if you're heading to celebrate with the Super Bowl Champions.

 

City streets of Green Bay: The history of a city can easily be found in its foundation; the city streets. Pay special attention to some of the street names. Some include: Lombardi Avenue and Reggie White Way; named after famous NFL team players.

 

Green Bay Football Statue: Located in downtown Green Bay, the Football statue is the iconic symbol of the love for American football. The 22 foot tall fiberglass statue leaps to catch a pass during the day and is lit up at night.

 

Lambeau Field: The number one attraction of the All American city is of course the home of the Green Bay Packers. Lambeau Field has turned into a year-round destination since its makeover in 2003. Apparently, it is worth the trip to Green Bay.

 

Stadium View: If you're unable to score tickets to a game while you're in Green Bay, you'll be somewhat forgiven if you visit Stadium View. As the name suggests, it is a huge sports bar in view of the stadium. Make sure to try the fried cheese curds, which is a famous Wisconsin delicacy.

 

Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame: A walk down the Hall of Fame is a dream for Green Bay Packer fans. They're able to relive over 90 years of a riveting football history. 80 exhibits feature three Super Bowl trophies and a re-creation of Vince Lombardi's office.

 

Title Town Brewing Company: Taking a trip to the Title Town Brewing Company is also a walk into the past. The current brewery was once part of the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Depot. The brewery itself opened years later in 1996. Their claim to fame is the tradition of local craft brewing. After taking a look at the beer menu, it might be worth the trip just to see the factory with ales like Kurty's Hop Monster, Hopasauraus Rex and Johnny "Blood" Red.

 

Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary: Did you know think the state of Wisconsin is home to plenty of wildlife? Open to the public year round with no admission fee, the 700-acre urban wildlife refuge is also Green Bay's largest city park. Not only are there live animal exhibits, there is also miles of hiking, skiing and walking trails available.

 

Bay Beach Amusement Park: As the name suggests, Bay Beach Amusement Park was once a beach area. A public beach was available, but pollution of the bay ruined this idea. Instead there is now a family friendly amusement park where even former President Franklin D. Roosevelt visited to celebrate Green Gay's tercentennial. Admission is free, but customers pay per ride, which costs as little as 25 cents.

 

Green Bay Botanical Garden: If all the excitement of the NFL is too much, unwind at the Green Bay Botanical Garden. It is a great example of the natural beauty of Northeastern Wisconsin through 47 acres of gardens and natural areas. The land itself is also historic; originally once known as an Oneida Indian Reservation Land.

 

Walk of Legends: Before you leave Green Bay, take the walk of Legends; a free one-mile public art walkway. Located east of Lambeau Field, 24 statues commemorate the prestigious honor of the football legends. They also face the famous streets named after many football legends; starting on Lombardi Avenue. The walk roughly goes through 11 eras in football history dating back to 1895.
