America's Best Tailgating Cities

Slide 22 of 32

Chapel Hill, NC

College: North Carolina Tar Heels, Kenan Memorial Stadium

"I have a vintage 1950s recipe book called Carolina Cooking," says Rick Davis of the school's alumni association. "It was written as a tailgate guide in 1953 by the Jr. Service League of Chapel Hill." Classic southern recipes, like egg salad and baked fish, are still popular here. Flanked by pine trees, this team's 1920s-era stadium regularly ranks as one of the most beautiful in the country.
