In today’s NFL, where billion dollar stadiums with the latest technology are all the rage, there’s one stadium still holding on to tradition. Opened in 1957, Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is old-school football at its best. Sellout crowds pack the stadium, even in sub-zero temperatures, to cheer on the four-time champion Packers. The atmosphere alone is worth a trip to the NFL’s smallest city. Just don’t forget your cheesehead hat.
