bengals/packer game transportation/parking info

We are going to see the Packers game the 22nd, staying at the Drury Inn north cincinnati. Are there any places to get a shuttle/bus from that area to the stadium (maybe a bar), or other transportation ideas to the game? We are driving down, but is it a hassle to get to the game and park, or not too bad? We would like to not have to worry about driving after a few beers!

I don't think that you will find any options from Sharonville (where you are staying) to downtown on Sunday other than a cab. If you split costs it shouldn't be too outrageous but you might check with some calls to cabs co.'s first. If you do decide to drive just be sure to leave early. There are multiple places/garages to park and then walk to the stadium as long as you don't try to get too close. You might also try parking at Horseshoe Casino and then walking (15-20 minutes)/getting a bus or a cab to/from the stadium.

Yes, called there first. They had no suggestions. In Green Bay shuttles are abundant. We like our parties!

It sounds like a cab ride is about $40, not too bad, but sounds like cabs are not that available.

You can arrange ahead of time for a taxi pick-up at your hotel. Taxis will be abundant after the game around the stadium and in other places downtown (other than along 5th St., Fountain Square and environs as they will be shut down for Oktoberfest.

If we do drive, will parking be scarce due to Oktoberfest?

Yes as the event will draws in the 500,000 range each day (and probably more in nice weather). Still, there are several garages just north of Fountain Square (and a good and cheap garage directly underneath it) that will have spaces if you arrive early. I would say 9:30 or so if you are able. From almost anywhere downtown it is a relatively easy walk down to the riverfront and to the stadium. If I were going to the game and to Oktoberfest I would either get there early enough to park under Fountain Square or take the sage advice of the person above who suggested parking at the casino, pop in for a Bloody Mary and relax until you decide to head towards the game (about noon for a 1pm kickoff) and/or get a taste of Oktoberfest before the big crowds arrive (it starts at 11:00). And even if neither of the above work out under "game conditions" (the casino might charge an hourly rate because of the expected crowd although I have never had to pay anything) there are multiple garages and surface lots: so, you will find parking if you arrive early enough.

Thanks for all of the great info. As of now looks as if weather will be good. I like the casino idea if we drive. That's always another fun option .
