Running into Packers... what to expect?

Hello...

Looks like we're going to be flying in to GRB the day before a Packers Game at Lambeau Field. What should we expect as far as traffic, crowds and car rental choices etc.? Is it really crazy? Should we go to Appleton to rent a car?? (We'll be staying there a couple of days before heading off on a road trip for a week)

Thanks!

Wouldn't it be easier to check some online car rental sites for rates and availability?

Green Bay does not have the traffic and congestion of a big city, except of course right around Lambeau Field on game day.

The Green Bay airport is small, so if you can get a car rental it will probably be easier than a slow day at O'Hare or any large airport.

Do you need a hotel in the area? I would be more worried about where to sleep than a car.

Well said.

Green Bay is small with few traffic hangups. The only place you will find "extra" congestion is around the stadium, and really only 3 hours before the game and 2 hours after. Your biggest concern, however, is if you don't already have your hotel rooms booked, you probably aren't staying in GB. Those fill up within days of the Packer schedule coming out. As far as rental cars, they are a standard counter. This isn't an "Emerald Isle" (National) counter, where you just get off the bus and pick one. Whatever you have rented, they will have, though. Check their individual web sites. There are 4 choices on-site at the airport: National, Avis, Hertz, and Budget if I remember right. I am sure Enterprise is in town but I cannot remember where.

Thanks for the replies... I haven't a clue about Green Bay, except for the Packers being there.

This gives me a better picture.

Cheers!
