Green Bay
Lambeau Field is the home of the Packers in Green Bay, Wisconsin and like many Wisconsinites, it is a travel destination and semi-religious experience in of itself for my father. In fact one my favorite memories growing up is a road trip we took to Green Bay to visit the stadium where he walked up to an obscure green wall of the stadium and got the chills just by touching it. He is a crazy man but I love him dearly.

The stadium opened in 1957 replacing a stadium near Green Bay’s East High School after the NFL threatened to force the Packers to move to a new larger stadium near Milwaukee. At first the sports complex was known as City Stadium however, it was renamed Lambeau Field in 1965 in honor of longtime head coach Curly Lambeau. Today the stadium is the oldest in the NFL and thanks to recent renovations and expansions it is the fourth largest.
