We decided to kick off our first day in Green Bay with a banger! Those of my sports freaks might have already guessed it by now. But, we are still going to do an introduction!

Are you passionate about NFL Football? Do you catch all the games? Then, we will be taking you to a spot that will be consuming your first day here in Green Bay!

Did you know Green Bay is home to the iconic Green Bay Packers? And, the more interesting part is that the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame is also placed in this city.

Imagine a huge space of almost 15,000 square feet filled with the things you are passionate about!

This building has two floors and both of those floors are filled with things that tell how awesome the Green Bay Packers are!

Are you still with us? Of course, you will be! We have got one more thing to cover after the immensely pleasurable Hall of Fame, and that is none other than the home turf of the team- Lambeau Field.

Lambeau Field is like a dream for all fans, and today we will be showing you around to fulfill that dream of yours. It opened its doors to the public back in 1957. And, there are very few turfs who get as much crowd as this field.

However, it is not the original building you will see today for it has gone through a lot of changes. What you will be seeing on your trip is a more defined beautiful version that draws thousands of people during the matches!

Some tour operators start with the field and move to the Hall of Fame. We’d suggest booking one of those trips if you want to know about the history more.
