America's Best Tailgating Cities
Green Bay, WI
NFL: Green Bay Packers, Lambeau Field
There are numerous stories of how tailgating came to be, but assistant public relations director Aaron Popkey says there's some evidence that it was invented by Packers fans in the 1920s. Today, the team's enthusiastic tailgaters eat beer brats, a Midwestern staple of store-bought bratwurst cooked with beer and onions. "Most people prepare them at home and bring them in, but I have seen big kettles of boiling beer here," says Popkey.
