From football greats to innovative artists and masters of illusion, Wisconsin is a land of legends.

Travelers may know Wisconsin for its breathtaking outdoors and savory cheese products, but there is much more to discover in “America’s Dairyland.” When groups visit some of the state’s unique historic sites, they will begin to uncover the fascinating stories that have shaped Wisconsin’s character and culture over the years, making it the rich destination it is today.

The following itinerary takes groups to five dynamic cities across the state, beginning in Green Bay and concluding in Milwaukee. Groups can complete the trip in five days, with less than two hours of driving between each destination.

Lambeau Field, Green Bay

No trip to “Packer Town” would be complete without a visit to Lambeau Field, the historic home of the Green Bay Packers.

Founded in 1919, the Green Bay Packers has been in continuous operation with the same name in the same location longer than any other NFL franchise. It is also the only publicly owned, not-for-profit professional football team in the country, boasting over 360,000 shareholders.

Groups can experience the prestige and history of Lambeau Field during one of the daily stadium tours that take visitors through exclusive areas such as the players tunnel and premium seating sections. In 2003, the stadium completed a stunning six-level atrium, transforming the facility into a year-round tourist destination. Visitors there can pick up a Packers jersey or a foam cheese hat in the Green Bay Packers Pro Shop, walk through the Packers Hall of Fame or grab a bite to eat at the 1919 Kitchen and Tap restaurant.

While you’re there: Title Town is a beautiful new 45-acre development just across the street from Lambeau Field. It encompasses the AAA four-diamond Lodge Kohler, the Hinterland Restaurant and Brewery and the 46 Below bistro, along with a full-scale football field, a winter skating rink, a tubing hill and a public playground.
