With the anticipation of over 80,000 fans filling Lambeau Field this fall, it’s expected that some will be coming to the game from their Door County vacation hub. Destination Sturgeon Bay Executive Director, Pam Seiler, noted that whatever travelers Door County missed by the Packers not allowing fan attendance in 2020, they made up for with outdoor recreation visitors.
Seiler also urges fans who want to double-dip their vacation into Door County and Lambeau Field to make lodging reservations immediately. She adds that people are booking hotel rooms fast for this fall as the demand for travel is very high.
Destination Door County Communications Director Jon Jarosh says that while they don’t numerically track how Packer games affect Door County, there is anecdotal evidence to show that Sundays had a different feel in 2020. One change he highlights from fall Sundays in 2020 was the traffic headed out of Door County. Last year, there weren't cars full of passengers in green and gold making their way south. He says DDC will field calls as the season approaches from fans coming for the game but also wanting to see what Door County is about. Jarosh thinks that Door County will see a boost beyond economics related to a returning game-day atmosphere.
Green Bay will begin holding pre-season games in August.
