We are currently in the early stages of planning a trip to the US for this September / October, and as my husband is a life long Green Bay Packers fan (no idea why the Packers by the way, we're both from the UK!) we are thinking of including a few days in Wisconsin before continuing on to Chicago then possibly up to Toronto to visit family there.
We haven't yet confirmed dates but would be looking at some time in late September / early October, to include a Sunday as if possible he would love to actually get to a Packers game. Depending on what else we decide to do during our trip, we would probably have 3-5 days to spend in the area.
We would most likely be flying into Chicago and picking up a hire car at O'Hare. As a rough circular route I was thinking of something along the lines of Chicago - Milwaukee - Green Bay - Madison then back to Chicago, or the same route in reverse depending on what day we choose to fly in . I don't however know much about what else there is to do in the area that might be worth a visit. I've read bits about Wisconsin Dells and Lake Geneva - would either or both of these also be worth including on the route &/or as an additonal stop for a night or two?
Any suggestions as to what we could do / where we could think about staying around this area of Wisconsin would be much appreciated. Hubbie will I'm sure be wanting to drag me on a tour of Lambeau Field and to the Packers Hall of Fame as well as going to a game so something not football related would be good!
Also before he gets too excited about going - would game tickets be easy to get hold of or are we talking impossible?
