Away Game Vacations: Best NFL Stadiums for Tailgating
When you want to make the most of a day of football with friends and family, tailgating parties are the way to go. You can bring your own food to grill out of the back of your car, mingling with other sports fans and soaking up the festive atmosphere. If you stay in a vacation rental within walking distance of the stadium - you'll be able to really kick off the big day among the thousands of fans enjoying an epic tailgate.
Come rain or shine, you can be sure that the locals of Chicago and those from further afield will be having a tailgating party. Chicago is famous for its indulgent foods and grilled Krispy Kreme donuts are just one of the irresistible delights traditionally eaten here.
Philadelphia is known for its cheese steak sandwich, something you have just got to try when tailgating here. The city is famous for being a particularly passionate sports town and is perfect when you are looking for a busy, vibrant atmosphere.
In Foxborough, Massachusetts, you will be tempted by the smell of New England seafood being grilled at tailgating parties. It is close to Boston, and the ambiance is always celebratory, which is sure to get you in the mood for the game.
This Kansas City stadium is often considered the best for tailgating parties. The grilling often starts up to two days before a big game, giving you plenty of opportunity to enjoy the pre-match excitement with friends and fellow fans.

Which NFL Stadiums Have the Best Food?
If you're looking for a weekend getaway to see your favorite NFL team play, but you're not willing to compromise on the food, you're in luck. America's stadiums are known for their unique gourmet experiences. If you are not interested in grilling your own meals check out the NFL stadiums that are the most famous for their delicious food at the concession stands. Skip the hot dog and choose from less common bites at these stadiums:
In Green Bay, Wisconsin, you will find a superb range of foods to keep your appetite at bay before and during the game. The local specialty is mac and cheese made with Wisconsin cheddar. Buffalo-style chicken is another top pick.
In East Rutherford, New Jersey, you will find a local twist on the famous stadium hot dog. New Jersey loves Italian-style dogs served with potatoes and peppers, with a vinegar topping that makes it truly irresistible.
In Seattle, enjoy Pacific seafood in the form of a special type of lobster roll at the games. This one is actually made with crab and is known as the Dungeness Crab Roll, served in a brioche bun for a very different but supremely satisfying alternative to the hot dog.
This Tampa, Florida stadium is well known for its Cajun and Cuban treats. The Pirate Dog switches sausage for mojo pork with banana peppers. It's the perfect marriage of island and Southern cuisine.
