Are you and your family looking to take a vacation this summer, that won't break the bank?
With $4 a gallon gas, many of us are.
That's the idea behind our special series, Trips on a Tank.
Today, why not visit the home of the World Champion Green Bay Packers?
Some call it the 'mecca of the NFL.'
"It's just a fun place to be," says Kristen Broderick, educational coordinator.
Every Packers game day draws nearly 73,000 people to Lambeau Field.
But you don't have to go to a game to experience all it has to offer.
That's because of stadium tours offered on a daily basis.
"On the tour we always have them get a little bit of the history out in Harlem Plaza, they come in, we tell them about the renovations we've had here at Lambeau. 2003 was our first year that we opened up our Atrium and stadium as you see it today. Then we go up to a private suite, they get to sit in the luxury box a little bit, they come down to the lowest level, probably the highlight," says Broderick.
As part of the stadium tour you'll get to walk through the same tunnel your favorite football players like Aaron Rodgers and Donald Driver do every game day at Lambeau.
"The uniqueness of this place are these three slabs right here, of cement encased with the red brick, and those are three slabs that were brought from the old tunnel at the end of the renovation in 2003, so that we can tell our people, hey Ray Nitchke stood here, Bart Starr, of course Brett Favre and all of our players now," she says.
Once you're out of the tunnel, you're down on the field.
But walk to the lowest level of Lambeau Field and you'll come across 25,000 square feet of Packers history.
At the Hall of Fame you won't just see years of Packers history, but see the Super Bowl Trophy too.
And when you visit Lambeu, chances are you won't only see people from Wisconsin.
They may not even be all Packer fans, because the history and experience of Lambeau Field is one of a kind.
"We're one of the unique franchises that has a history just rich in so many things that unfortunately other football teams do not have," says Krissy Zegers, Hall of Fame Manager.
"I just think you need to come here once in your lifetime, if you can, the old saying is 'Go Pack Go," says Broderick.
