Football season is just around the corner and to many people that means only one thing: tailgating. There is nothing better than sharing some great food with friends and family before your home team takes the field. Tailgating is also a way to make some new friends.
Below are five of the top tailgating cities in the country. This is by no way a complete list but each of these cities offers something unique as far as food and overall experience. Load up the RV and set your GPS coordinates for each of these stadiums and be prepared for an experience of a lifetime.
Buffalo, NY – Ralph Wilson Stadium
When you think of Buffalo, you think of buffalo wings and the parking lot of Ralph Wilson Stadium is one of the best places in the world to experience them. The stadium also offers ample parking for RVs and busses. Feel free to bring all the creature comforts that will make your tailgating party the envy of your neighbors.
While buffalo wings are the dish of choice, you can also experience some amazing kummelweck and excellent chili.
Miami, FL – Sun Life Stadium
Miami is a great place to catch a football game. First of all, the weather is great. There are only a few places where you can wear shorts in December. Secondly, there are so many transplants from around the country that the food scene in the parking lot is as diverse as the population. The main focus, however, will be Cuban food. Follow your nose to some of the best food outside of Havana.
Sun Life Stadium also offers one of the largest parking lots in the league so there will be room for everyone in your party.
Houston, TX – NRG Stadium
The Houston Texans management has encouraged fans to tailgate and the fans have taken to it like fish to water. Texas-style barbeque is always on the menu but Tex-Mex is very popular in Houston. You can never go wrong with fajitas and enchiladas. Nowhere else on earth is it done better than in Texas.
They say everything is bigger in Texas and that definitely applies to the NRG Stadium parking lot. There is plenty of room for RVs and busses so you can link up with friends and create your own party area.
Kansas City, MO – Arrowhead Stadium
Kansas City barbeque is possibly the best in the world. And specifically known for their ribs. When you mix barbecue with football, you have the makings of a great day. Everything here will be off the charts delicious and Chiefs fans are some of the friendliest in the league.
Kansas City can get extremely cold in November and December so pack accordingly. Arrowhead Stadium is an open roof venue.
Green Bay, WI – Lambeau Field
Watching a game at Lambeau Field is at the top of many sports fans’ bucket list for very good reasons – great football, great food and great people. Tailgating is a city-wide activity with residents gathering in their driveways and front lawns.
The parking lot at Lambeau Field is home to some of the best bratwurst this side of the Atlantic. Everyone is friendly and willing to share so bring your appetite.
Traveling to these stadiums and tailgating will not only allow you to meet some terrific people and eat some great food but you will also see some of the best parts of this country. Stay safe with Coach-Net’s RV Protection Programs.
