Are you fully onboard with the NFL (Taylor’s Version) right now? We totally get it. Although we have been die-hard football fans ever since our 1919 era, the romance between Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce has “enchanted” the world, including us. We love all of the attention the games are getting from new fans, even though we think they’re rooting for the wrong team. 😉
Now, we can’t say for *certain* whether Taylor will be at the Packers vs Chiefs game on December 3, but we do know that she doesn’t have any concerts scheduled that day. Think about it this way… even if she doesn’t show up, you’ll still get a chance to visit Green Bay and see a game at Lambeau Field and honestly, that’s still an experience of a lifetime!
And before we go any further, we know the Swifties will be cheering for Future Mr. Swift and the Chiefs instead of the Packers. And that’s totally okay with us. We still want to welcome all of the Swifties with that amazing hometown hospitality we’re known for throughout the NFL – and beyond. You might say we have a big reputation for kindness around here.
Okay, so here is our list of all the things we think Swifties need to see and do while they’re in Green Bay cheering for Taylor’s boyfriend!
Friday: In Your Lover Era 🌸💗🎀
If you’re coming to Green Bay with your significant other, why not pre-game with a romantic day or night out on the town? We think nothing is more romantic than ice skating at Titletown or Howard Commons — and both offer refreshments and affordable skate rentals on-site.
After that, warm up with a visit to Aardvark Wine Lounge, located in the Downtown District. We love this place because you can sample as much or as little as you want using their self-serve taps. Plus, their charcuterie boards are AMAZING.
Then, you can wrap up your date night with a leisurely stroll along the CityDeck to see the river at night, the holiday lights, and the ornament igloos on the Hagemeister Park patio. The moments you share here will have you going back to December all the time.
Saturday: Toast to Your Real Friends🐍🖤⛓️
Saturdays are all about having a good time with your favorite people and we have the perfect day planned for you to do just that. As you might know, Green Bay is a little bit obsessed with good beer… and we have a few fun and tasty recommendations for you!
Sparks will fly when you try the Prickly in Pink fruited sour from Cocoon Brewing. It’s made with loads of pineapple, orange, and prickly pear with a refreshing and light sour base. Nice!
If sours aren’t your thing, try one of Green Bay’s most beloved brews, Johnny Blood Red from Titletown Brewing. This Irish Style Red Ale is perfect for… you guessed it… the “Red” girlies.
Finally, we want to include The Grand Cru 22, for obvious reasons. This Kettle Sour Barrel Aged Cherry Belgian Ale is Hinterland’s 22nd anniversary beer and it’s perfect for game day!
If you’re not a beer drinker, that’s okay! There are so many cute coffee and tea shops around town that are perfect for hanging out with your besties. We’re Starbucks lovers just like everyone else, but we think you should check out Coffee Wizardz, Luna Cafe, or Boba Bae for something even more special.
Sunday: It Was Rare, I Was There (Taylor's Version)🧣🍷👠
The game doesn’t start until 7:20 pm which gives you plenty of time for brunch and sightseeing! The Downtown District has a few really great brunch spots, like The Creamery Downtown, Delilah’s, and White Dog. We recommend reservations because gameday weekends always mean bigger crowds, especially at these popular downtown spots.
After brunch, why not take a short drive north to see Lake Michigan… the water is SO peaceful in the fall and winter. Sunset Beach Park is a great place to go and see the sights. It overlooks the rocky shores of the bay and honestly, the view there just hits different.
If hiking is more your thing, we suggest Fonferek's Glen County Park. It’s not a difficult trail, and you will get to see magnificent views, including a 30-foot waterfall, dolomite cliffs, and a stone archway that is part of the larger Niagara Escarpment.
After that, it’ll probably be time to grab your squad and head on over to Lambeau! Get there early so you can do some good old-fashioned tailgating. The entire Stadium District will be buzzing with fans which means great people watching. You never know who you might see!
See You Soon, Swifties!
We’ve thrown a lot at you, but long story short, we hope you have the time of your life here with us in Green Bay. If you want more trip inspo, check out our digital destination guide here!
