America's Best Tailgating Cities

Slide 23 of 32

Auburn, AL

College: Auburn Tigers, Jordan-Hare Stadium

"On game day, any available space becomes a parking lot," says Cassie Arner, a director in Auburn University's athletic department. "If you get a spot a mile away, you're considered close." Three hours before the game, revelers abandon elaborate setups (flat-screen TVs, satellite dishes and motorhomes that arrive days before the game are not uncommon) to watch the "tiger walk," the team's march into the stadium.
