4 Fun Football Towns that Score Big on Fun

There’s a big football game in February that draws, on average, 115 million viewers. A 30-second ad run during the game can cost upwards of $7 million. A ticket to attend the event live can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $53,000. Crazy, but America does love its football. If you like football as much as you like camping, check out these cities that have ties to the sport and will keep you in the game all year long.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame: Located in Canton, Ohio, this is a great place for a football fan or someone who is just getting interested in the sport as it provides plenty of football history as well as rare artifacts from the game. “Insider Tours” are available and are led by a highly-knowledgeable docent who has all the background on the sport. Visitors can also opt to tour the galleries on their own and see all the history, including the amazing Hall of Fame that contains the bronze busts of all the inductees through the years.

Lambeau Field: Legendary coach Vince Lombardi spent the majority of his coaching career at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, leading the Packers to five championships and an amazing 89-29-4 record during his nine-year tenure. So, of course Packer fans (and most football fans) will consider a trip to Lambeau worthy of their time. And the variety of tours, like a winning playbook, offers several options for a successful visit. As you make your way to the stadium, don’t miss the opportunity to take a picture with the giant bronze statues of Lombardi as well as Curly Lambeau, for whom the field is named. For details, go to

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum: On January 15, 1967, the L.A. Memorial Coliseum hosted the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game that featured the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs (spoiler alert: Packers won 35-10). Completed in 1923, the Coliseum has also hosted many events through the years including the 1932 Summer Olympics, the 1960 Democratic National Convention, plenty of sporting events, and is now currently the home field for the USC Trojans. Visitors can take a 75-minute walking tour of the facility that includes the locker room and the Player’s Tunnel. Visit for details.

College Football Hall of Fame: For most NFL players, the route to the pros most likely begins with a youth football league, high school play, and then a college career before moving on to play in the NFL. So, the College Football Hall of Fame may be of interest. Located in Atlanta, Georgia, the College Football Hall Of Fame not only houses the Hall Of Fame, but has several exhibits dedicated to the world of American college football. There’s the wall of helmets representing more than 750 colleges, an interactive Skills Zone, and a giant indoor playing field. For more information, visit
