Ole Miss Tailgate

Fall is here, and if you’re a college football fan, you probably have one thing on your mind: Kickoff. College football is more than a beloved pastime, it’s a lifestyle. But when it comes down to it, the party doesn’t start when the team walks out, it starts at the tailgate. So, we have compiled a list of the Top 5 college football tailgates, all of which warrant a fall road trip.

1. Ole Miss 

A tailgate at the Grove is a remarkable experience of gourmet food, spirited students, and raving fans. The Grove provides a tailgating atmosphere unlike anywhere else in the country.

2. LSU

In Louisiana, good food and family are synonymous, and nowhere does this ring true more than a tailgate. The bigger the tailgate, the bigger the party, so we like to go big with luxury accommodations. A tailgate with a Prevost Marathon provides the perfect setting to try incredible Cajun dishes and experience the joy that only college football provides.

3. Wisconsin

Camp Randall Stadium tailgates are downright decadent. With never ending supplies of beer, brats, and badgers fans, it’s hard not to have a good time. With a RV park dedicated to tailgates and an incredible college town a mile from the stadium, it’s easily one of the best tailgate destinations.

4. Washington University

At the University of Washington, tailgates are a weekend-long event. Get there Friday morning for a great spot and discover the incredible seafood the city has to offer. Saturday, rise early and get the party started with a luxury motorhome tailgate! Just a half mile from the ocean, you can also check out boating tailgates, or “sailgates.” Yes, they’re as awesome as they sound.

5. Texas A&M

Known for its laid-back atmosphere and family friendly events, this is the perfect weekend getaway for your family. The party starts on Friday with yell practice for the kids. Attend the Midnight yell and then become a part of the 12th man during the contest. A tailgate in College Station is a tailgate you’ll never forget.

Whether or not these top 5 include your favorite team, you’ll definitely have a great time. Fall is the best time of year because college football is back! You don’t want to miss it.
