Going into fall and winter, a favorite Wisconsin activity is watching football and our very own Green Bay Packers.
The Green Bay Packers are the third-oldest NFL franchise, established in 1919. The Green Bay Packers are the only non-profit, professional major league team in the United States, and are owned by the community. The team was founded by Earl "Curly" Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun. We've had dozens of guests already this year stay at the hostel coming from nearby states and even other countries!
Hotels start at $200 per night if you want to stay in Green Bay. Consider staying a night in Milwaukee starting at $28 per night at Cream City Hostel and check out Milwaukee for a day or two. With local shuttles near the hostel at affordable prices- you can get up to Lambeau Field and back and save money.
There are some easy transportation options to get yourself up to Green Bay from Cream City Hostel in Milwaukee...
Check out the The Packer Shuttle. With four pick-ups from park & rides- easy to access by car and avoid parking up at Lambeau Field. The Downtown Park & Ride is on 5th Street and St. Paul Avenue right by the Amtrak/Greyhound station. Take the number 15 bus, which picks up right across the street from Cream City Hostel and get off on St. Paul Avenue by the Public Market. You can walk or take the Hop streetcar to the parking lot for the bus, which is five blocks away. Round trip tickets are only $49!
If you want to grab a bite to eat or a drink before the game- check out these nine bars in Milwaukee that offer shuttle services to and from the game.
Here are two of our favorite bars with shuttle options:
Directions from the hostel: Take the number 15 bus to Water Street & State Street and walk two blocks
Includes: Coach Bus transportation with restroom, drink coolers on-board, complimentary food and drink, live DJ, tailgate games, tailgate party house with bar and televisions.
