I am super happy, I am getting ready to purchase tickets for the Dolphins vs. Packers game in Green Bay. This is my first ever away game that I am going to witness. I would really appreciate any advice you guys can give me.

Ill be there! Section 109 row 30.

My advise. There are houses to south of the stadium. Lots of parties, lots parking. Hangout in that area. If you get there early enough there are a ton of bars within walking distance behind the Don Hudson Center. I prefer Tom Dick and Harrys, Stadium View has some huge parties also. I cant wait!!

Where are you flying into? Where are you staying? How long?

Id stay in Appleton. More to do, its about 20 min drive to the stadium. There are plenty of decent hotels. The Dolphins stay at the Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton. Probably the nicest one. Otherwise there is a decent Super 8 ive stayed in while parting there.

Thanks for the insight the more you can give me the better. Found tickets in section 109 , hows the view from there? Also can you wear your jersey to a game or are fans as stupid as in Buffalo, N.E. or NY.

I'm going to this game also. I live about an hour south of Green Bay. My girlfriend's dad got us tickets, but I'm sitting in the endzone seats, which is season ticket holder territory. Hopefully it doesn't get too ugly when I show up in my Phins gear!

One of the guys I work with is a season ticket holder, and his advice is to cheer for your team, but be respectful. You'll be amazed at how nice people are in this part of the world. Just don't be a jerk and you should be fine.

More to do? I overnight at the Cambria Suites right by Lambau and there are a ton of bars. I was there during camp and preseason game and it was awesome. I can't wait till my over night there during the season.

Can someone recommend where they buy away ticket games. I don't know if to do it through the Dolphins or if I should buy the tickets at Stub Hub or on NFL ticket exchange.

Use caution with stubhub they are a second party consignment service. They don't actually have the tickets. My mom bought skybox tickets to thr USF vs WVU game they were fake. She got to box and was escorted out by police, in tears mind you. Stubhub told her piss off, thankgod she paid on American Express and their fraud department handled everything including having the their prosecuted.

I'll be there, my wife's a packers fan and the game is the day before our 2 year anniversary. Us fin fans should arrange a fins tailgate before the game somewhere. From what I hear the fans up there are real respectful so no worries about rocking out with the Phins out.

I would agree. Appleton is a much more fun town than Green Bay.

If you didnt buy these tickets yet, I recommend being up higher. At Lambeu you are extremely low to the ground and close to the players. It makes it hard to see at times. I recommend being up at least 15-20 rows, plus than your right at the bottom of the tunnel. Easier to take a piss and get a beer. My Grandpa's season tickets are section 123 row 30 and I think they are some of the best seats in the house.

I was just stationed in Sturgeon Bay, WI in the Coast Guard for the last 4 years....its about 40 minutes north of GB. (I just moved this past summer to MD) I'm a huge Dolphins fan but I'm also a football fan at heart and I had the pleasure of attending 5 games while I was stationed there. You will not find a more awesome home game experience anywhere in the league. Lambeau field is awesome and there isn't a bad seat in the place. I'm going this year with my fiancee, to the Fins-Packers game (who I met while I was stationed there, yes I'm going to marry a cheesehead) and I can't wait.

For the most part people are really nice.....from what I've seen if you're a fan of the away team you're just gonna be given some junk. But its playful for the most part......they'll say the "Fins are Garbage!" or something like that.... then buy you a beer. Nicest fans in pro football from what I've seen, can't speak for everyone but thats what I've seen. (When the Vikes and Bears come to GB=Different story) Nothing like going to a Jets game or anything (Which I did for a MNF game once and almost didn't make it out alive)


Also, how accurate is that info on where the Dolphins are staying in Appleton? Anyone ever tried to watch them board the bus in the morning? That would be really cool if a person could do that?

lol. I live about 15 miles away from you in Ripon. I know my location still says Illinois, which is where I'm originally from, but I've lived in Ripon for 4 years. I usually go to The Bar in Oshkosh to watch the Fins play on Sundays, unless they're nationally televised, then I watch them from the comforts of home!

I'm looking forward to going to this game. We have about 14 people going this year.

We bought our tix from Title Town Tickets:
http://tickets.titletowntickets.com/LiveTicketDetail.asp?EventID=965176

They were able to seat us together. It is costing us $175 a ticket. There is another company that is charging $149 and that includes a tailgate party of unlimited food and drink (alcohol included) but they could only seat us together in 4's. Given a choice the group opted to sit together. Were in Sec 104 Row 18.

A friend of ours up there recommended flying and staying in Milwaukee. Hotels and airfare were a lot cheaper. He said when it's not game day there's not a whole lot to do in Green Bay so we'll make the two hour trek on game day.

Crazy. I used to go to football camps at Ripon College all the time. I was acctually just at "The Bar" in Oshkosh Friday for some drinks. Really nice bar. And very small world.
