Green Bay Packers (Only NFL team owned by the Public)

We're not huge football fans, but mostly fans of Chicago Bears, not their rivals the Green Bay Packers. In the area though, so decided to tour 'behind enemy lines' lol. Very impressive new atrium facility that hosts many events besides football. 3 weddings were there that day. The stadium capacity has doubled, but demand is still high. They've sold out every game since 1960, & 115k names are on waiting list for season tickets.

After Apostle Islands, decided to visit the 'World Snowmobile Headquarters' in Eagle River, WI. From town's, website: 'Welcome to the Snowmobile Capital of the World®. We're proud to host the Amsoil World Championship Snowmobile Derby, the World Snowmobile Headquarters and the Eagle River “500”, over 500 miles of the best groomed trails you can find.'

September has few tourists. But in January, there are thousands. The owner gave us a tour & history of the sport. We learned snowmobiles were created only 30 miles away in WI. May be fun to visit in Winter! Also saw ATVs at the Gas Station. Very cool.

Apostle Islands, Wisconsin

Took a ferry from Bayfield, WI to Madeline Island. It's part of the Apostle Island National Seashore. Visited in 2006, but that time was in a cabin. This time, we stayed in State Park campground, and hike in park. Took short drive around island and saw an Eagle in a tree. very majestic to see.
