going on faith [ august | september 2016 ] [ DESTINATION GREEN BAY] H I G H L I G H T | T I T L E T O W N Coming back down the Door County peninsula, travelers will pass through the city of Green Bay, located on the Lake Michigan bay of the same name. Green Bay will be forever linked to the Packers, its pro football team that is deeply intertwined with community life and culture. The team's stadium at Lambeau Field is the most recognizable landmark in town and, after extensive renovations and expansions that were com- pleted this year, offers a variety of visitor experiences. Groups can start their football-themed visits with a stop at the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, where they will learn about the famed team's history, including their winning the first Super Bowl, and see artifacts from famous players. After that, an official tour of the stadium takes them onto the field and into restricted areas such as locker rooms and luxury suites. WHILE YOU'RE THERE: Faith-based groups will enjoy visiting a number of special churches and shrines around the Green Bay area. These include St. Francis Xavier Cathedral and Museum, St. Norbert Abbey and Our Lady of Good Help Shrine, the only official Marian shrine in the country. M O R E I N F O | W W W . G R E E N B A Y .

But Madison sits between two small lakes — Mendota and Monona — that offer a number of exciting experiences for visitors. On Lake Mendota, the waterfront area is known as Mendota Terrace and features a number of attractions. The terrace is known for its many shops and restaurants, as well as a popular summer concert series at the lakeside bandstand. Outfitters at the terrace offer a num- ber of ways to get out on the water and enjoy the lake, including kayak and paddleboard rentals. Another kind of experience awaits on the shore of Lake Monona. Monona Terrace, the city's convention center, was designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and many groups stop by for tours that highlight the unique art, architecture and history of the building. W HILE YOU'RE THERE: As a famously progressive college town located near fertile agricultural areas, Madison enjoys a burgeoning food scene that rivals many bigger cities around the country. Foodies can dine at any of the many local farm-to-table restaurants around town or take sample dishes from several with Madison Food Explorers or Madison Eats food tours. M O R E I N F O | W W W .
