One of the things Packers fans know how to do is travel well.  They come out and support their team on the road, so it's no surprise people are already coming up with a gameplan to get to Atlanta for the playoffs.

Whether it's by plane or car, Packers fans are getting ready to head to Atlanta.

"We were pretty busy this morning with a lot of calls coming in with people looking for a package, looking for hotel accommodations, flights, all of those," said Jenny Cagle, vice president of Elm Grove Travel.

Elm Grove Travel offers a package that gets people two nights at a Atlanta hotel, a pregame party, and tickets to the game for around $750 per person. But you still need to figure out how to get there.

Atlanta is just over 800 miles away, so there are a lot of options. Depending on the day you want to travel, the cheapest flight out of Mitchell International is running right around $430.

If you want to take a road trip, it will cost about $140 in gas. Snacks and meals are not included.
However, spending the night in Atlanta is already getting tight.

"One of the hotels that was available this morning they already sold out of their inventory there and they moved onto the second hotel," said Cagle.

But even more important, you need to get into the game.

"Prices are starting out at about $325 for an upper level end zone and can approach $1,000 for something between the 40 and 50 yard line in the lower level," said John Lamoreaux, president of Ticket King.

Lamoreaux said so far there are still a lot of seats available, and it's the last affordable game considering where they would go next.

"The momentum and excitement has been building game by game by game and you couldn't have had a more exciting game in Dallas. So I don't know how they will top it in Atlanta, but a win to go to the Super Bowl would do that," said Lamoreaux.

According to Lamoreaux, a Super Bowl ticket will cost you more than $3,000.
