It may be the offseason, but Green Bay Packer fans and area businesses have a lot of excitement building around the newly released NFL schedule and the draft that is currently being held. The announcement of the scheduled games last week, has Door County hospitality businesses taking note. Rick Hess, general manager at the White Birch Inn in Sturgeon Bay, says he is surprised at where the majority of the bookings are coming from.
Hess adds that the Sunday night prime-time games are ideal for visitors to extend their weekend stays in Door County. The Packers will play three Sunday night games this fall with one being the home opener on September 9 against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field.
