Make a day of it
As I mentioned in the opening, there is a lot to do in and around the stadium. Making it an entire day is the best way to take it all in. There are many hotels surrounding the stadium. If you book a room at one of these establishments, after you check in, you won’t need your vehicle. Everything is nearby and centrally located.
There are two hotels located directly across the street from Ray Nitschke Field, and a few more a block or two away. Check in, walk to the field, take in practice, then walk the block down to the stadium and partake in everything the Atrium has to offer.
The Packers Hall of Fame, 1919 Kitchen and Tap, and the Packers Pro Shop are located inside the Atrium. While there, take in a stadium tour. Tickets for stadium tours can be bought in advance through the Packers website. I would suggest this option.
There are also different types of tours you can take depending on your budget. But they all lead you down the players tunnel to close out the tour. You can walk on the bricks Packers legends have and view the field. As a Packers fan you will be in awe when you walk through and look up and around the bowl from field level.
On the western side of the stadium is the Packers News District. There is a full-length football field open to the public, as well as games and other activities along the park. There are also football-themed playgrounds for children.
There are restaurants in the District with great food and beer on tap. On Friday and Saturday there will also be free live music. Or if you just want a great view of the stadium, you can grab a blanket and sit on Ariens Hill.
