(BPT) - Some travel trends come and go, but others have staying power. Sports-themed travel is gaining momentum in 2018, and experts predict that it's only going to get bigger. If you like the thrill of competition, the history of the game and the joy of being a fan, consider sports-themed destinations for your next vacation.
A prime example for sports-themed travel is Green Bay, Wisconsin. Whether you are a Packers fan or a football fanatic, this distinctive area is ideal for couples, families or guy-and-girlfriend getaways - particularly the new Titletown development, which offers travelers an array of sports-themed activities to explore, with something to tempt all of the senses.
A 45-acre development adjacent to Lambeau Field, Titletown is the place to be, boasting a variety of amenities, a big brewery and an impressive outdoor park experience with year-round programming. Check out a concert or start a pickup game of football on the artificial turf. Everyone feels welcome here.
Located just yards from Lambeau Field, LODGE KOHLER gives you a home field advantage in the heart of the action. The hotel design is rugged yet refined, and it commemorates the game with historic Biever family photos of the Green Bay Packers throughout the timeless brick building.
Revel in the convenience and comfort of boutique-style hotel offerings, featuring warm and spirited accommodations, on-site dining, encapsulating spa, family pool and a fitness center featuring yoga classes from the resident yoga instructor. The authentic Midwestern hospitality will make you feel at home no matter how far you've traveled.
Of course the time-honored draw of Green Bay has been and always will be Lambeau Field - one of the most storied and hallowed stadiums in the United States. At the Packers Hall of Fame in the Lambeau Field Atrium, visitors can discover interactive displays, guided tours and the seasonal Packers Training Camp.
Explore more of the sports team's past on the Oneida Nation Walk of Legends or the Packers Heritage Trail, which pays homage to the buildings, businesses and people that have historical significance to the team. Team history abounds around every corner of Green Bay's scenic and extensive urban trail and may be traveled by foot, Segway or trolley.
There's even more worth celebrating this year in Green Bay: The Packers have spent a century on the gridiron. The 100 Seasons celebration will feature numerous events in Titletown and throughout Green Bay, culminating with an epic 100th birthday party on Aug. 11, 2019.
Want more than football? Neighboring Lambeau Field, the Resch Center - home of the Green Bay Phoenix men's college basketball team and USHL Green Bay Gamblers hockey team - offers year-round entertainment, as it hosts an onslaught of spectacular national touring artists and family entertainment on and off the ice.
