Howdy. I know this question has been asked before on these forums, but the most recent one was a few years ago, so hopefully it's ok to raise it again.
I'm from Sydney, Australia and will be heading over to the States next week for 3 months (more pleasure than business). I've always been a big college foorball fan, and have been a big Badgers and Packers fan since I had the pleasure of working with some great Wisconsin people in 2002 (actually interned for Congresswoman Baldwin in DC).
Finally I get the chance to head to Camp Randall and I can't wait, but I don't really have any good bearings on where I should be looking to stay. From my limited research it looks like the area around State Street ??
Ideally I'd like to be close to the action to make sure I get to experience the much talked about gameday atmosphere, but paying $500 a night at the DoubleTree is not really feasable !!
Any thoughts would be great and GO BADGERS !!!
p.s. Will also be watching the Badgers in their season opener in Las Vegas. Should be a big weekend as I've heard lots of UW students / supporters make the trip down for that one !!
