How to Plan the Best Tailgate for Nashville Sports

If you are making a drive out to Nashville for a game, taking your RV is a great option. RVs provide indoor space where you can relax and prepare incredible food for your tailgate. If you plan to travel and tailgate in Nashville, here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Plan: Look up directions beforehand, pick a menu and ensure you check a Nashville sports guide or team schedules for college or professional footballbaseball or hockey to confirm where they are playing and when the game starts.
  • Scope out your site: Figure out where to park your RV. Consider tailgating at a local campground for a comfortable and convenient place to relax.
  • Loop in your group: If you come to the game with buddies, ensure you are all on the same page.
  • Remember team gear: Support your team with T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and more.
  • Prepare for cleanup: Bring supplies like trash bags to make cleaning up easier.

Plan a Cookout Menu

No tailgating guide for Nashville is complete without a menu. Be sure to plan your menu based on what is allowed at your tailgating spot. For instance, some spots do not allow open fires or charcoal grills. Here are some food ideas:

  • Main dish: Classic choices include burgers, brats, hotdogs and sausages. 
  • Drinks: Bring your favorite beverages along.
  • Sides: Pack some additional snacks like chips, potato or pasta salad, chile and queso.
  • Ice/cooler: While this is not a menu item, it is crucial for keeping drinks and other food chilled.

Pack for Fun

To ensure your tailgate party is the best it can be, make sure you pack items such as:

  • Seating: Plan according to the size of your group.
  • Decor: Bring flags, streamers, window paint and more to cheer on your team.
  • Bug spray and sunscreen: Make your trip more enjoyable by protecting yourself against the sun and pests.
  • Yard games: Games like Jenga and cornhole can help to pass the time before the game starts.
