The Green Bay Packers are known around the world for having a special bond with their fans and with the community. Local history-makers, Curly Lambeau and George Calhoun brought together athletes and organized a sandlot football team. Today, Packers fans can be found around the world. Lambeau Field is one of the most storied and hallowed stadiums in the United States, and the Green Bay Packers are the only team in the National Football League to be owned by the fans. Consistently ranked No.1 for the "fan experience," Lambeau seats 80,000 fans. Curiously enough, we could fill another stadium with the number of fans that are on the ticket waiting list. The team has season ticket holders in all 50 states! Public tours of the stadium are available year-round, except on game days. If you're visiting during the month of August, the team practices are open to the public during Packers Training Camp. Don't miss the player riding bikes to the practice field. This is a time-honored tradition that is appreciated by both the players and the kids who bring their bikes. For information on practice times and activities visit www.packers.com. Two self-guided walking tours are available for Packers history buffs. The Oneida Nation Walk of Legends is near Lambeau Field and features stories and photos on large granite-engraved monuments. The Packers Heritage Trail pays homage to the buildings/ businesses in downtown Green Bay that have historical significance for the team and the community. The Trail starts at the Neville Public Museum. Each location displays large bronze plaques. The Packers Hall of Fame is located inside the Lambeau Field Atrium. Interactive displays will have you exploring teams of the past and the present. When you're in downtown Green Bay, look for the famous receiver statue, painted in the likeness of Packers great #80 Donald Driver. A perfect location to snap a few pictures. Finally, your Titletown, USA experience wouldn't be complete without grabbing a few souvenirs at the Green Bay Packers Pro Shop. If you can imagine any item in green and gold, you'll find it. #LeGB
