America's Best Tailgating Cities

Slide 14 of 32

Cincinnati, OH

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals, Paul Brown Stadium

"I don't know if it was invented here, but Cincinnati seems to be the cornhole capital of the world," says team official P.J. Combs, referring to the ubiquitous beanbag-tossing tailgate game. The city's eponymous chili, flavored with cinnamon and unsweetened chocolate, is always available—often as a "three-way," which includes spaghetti and cheese (add onions and/or beans to make a four- or five-way).
