Best College Tailgating Spots, PT. 3 Posted by: Hedi Hemenway | 0 Comments

Here's Part 3 of our Best College Tailgating Spots, featuring Mizzou, Vanderbilt, and the University of Texas. Game on!



While tailgating is allowed anywhere on campus, the big action happens at Hearnes Center Fieldhouse, where large groups obtain permits to serve alcohol, and the brand new Tiger Town, located at Faurot Field, which is free. BBQ, libations, and kid-friendly activities make it a go-to for the whole family.




Not one to be outdone by other schools, Vanderbilt takes its tailgating seriously. Vandyville, designated by the school as the official tailgating area, is for Vanderbilt fans only (sorry, opposing teams, you'll have to find your own place to party), and fans must reserve their spot early. Tailgating happens at street and lot parking, too, but again, you must plan ahead and come early. Spots go quick!



University of Texas

Par for the course, Texas does it bigger and better than everyone else, and tailgating at UT is no exception. From tents and grills, to full-size trailers (bigger is better here), street and lot parking around the stadium is your best bet, so come early and get ready to party.


Where's your favorite tailgating spot?
