Take a football road trip! NFL travel ideas for the 2023 season

View from behind the end zone at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati

Now that the NFL schedule for 2023 has dropped, we can start with one of our favorite rites around here: planning out NFL travel and road trip ideas for the upcoming season.

Yes, we love breaking down schedules to find road trip ideas in which you can see multiple games while sticking to a budget. And while we do road trip idea posts for the other four “major” sports leagues – MLB, the NBA and NHL – the NFL is a different beast in that most games every week are on Sundays.

So most NFL travel ideas – that is, road trips in which you see multiple NFL games – will have to rely on the Sunday-Monday schedule, or Thursday-Sunday if you have more time on your hands. we’re including these ideas this year, because let’s face it: more games = more fun.

Beyond that, an added criteria for these NFL travel ideas is that the games must be in cities within a reasonable one-day driving distance of one another (maximum 400 miles).

I realize you can go to just about any game you want on Sunday and then fly to the Monday-night home city, for example, but convenience is a major factor in formulating these itineraries. These are “NFL road trip” ideas, after all.

Whether you’re looking to check stadiums off your list or you just want travel to check out some of the best NFL games live, I hope these road trip ideas will inspire you to get out there and see more sports this fall! Check out the possible itineraries below.

Note: You can look for tickets via Ticketmaster by clicking on the links for each game listed.

View from the upper deck at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts

Sunday, Sept. 10: Eagles at Patriots , 4:25 p.m. ET Monday, Sept. 11: Bills at Jets , 8:15 p.m. ET

Let’s face it, the most intriguing matchup of the 2023 Week 1 schedule is the Monday-nighter: Aaron Rodgers makes his Jets debut at MetLife Stadium against a Bills team trying to get over the hump and become a true Super Bowl contender. That will be the main course for any NFL travel idea in the first week.

There are a few nearby options to form an NFL road trip, but to us the best Sunday option is happening at Gillette Stadium , where the defending NFC champion Eagles go on the road to face the Patriots. (You could also make it an all-New York trip and see Cowboys-Giants on Sunday night, but to us it’s not as much fun to see two games at the same stadium.)

Distance between stadiums: 207 miles

Sunday, Sept. 17: Ravens at Bengals , 1 p.m. ET Monday, Sept. 18: Browns at Steelers , 8:15 p.m. ET

Sunday, Sept. 17: Packers at Falcons , 1 p.m. ET Monday, Sept. 18: Saints at Panthers , 7:15 p.m. ET

There’s a Monday night doubleheader in Week 2 for the second straight season, and it creates opportunities for two NFL travel ideas.

You could choose an AFC North road trip, beginning at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati and finishing at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh. Or tour the NFC South instead, watching the Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium (against the Rodgers-less Packers, no less) before catching No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young and the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

Distance between stadiums:  289 miles (Cincinnati-Pittsburgh); 242 miles (Baltimore-Philadelphia)

Sunday, Sept. 24: Texans at Jaguars , 1 p.m. ET Monday, Sept. 25: Eagles at Buccaneers , 7:15 p.m. ET

Sunday, Sept. 24: Titans at Browns , 1 p.m. ET Monday, Sept. 25: Rams at Bengals , 8:15 p.m. ET

Yes, there are two Monday-night doubleheaders in 2023, and just like in Week 2, there are two strong NFL travel options.

The first will take you to Florida, where you can see the Jaguars host the Texans at TIAA Bank Field and then the Tom Brady-less Bucs take on the Eagles at Raymond James Stadium . Or, how about an all-Ohio trip with the Browns and Titans at Cleveland Browns Stadium , followed by a Super Bowl LVI rematch between the Rams and Bengals at Paycor Stadium ?

Distance between stadiums:  204 miles (Jacksonville-Tampa); 252 miles (Cleveland-Cincinnati)

Sunday, Oct. 1: Commanders at Eagles , 1 p.m. ET Monday, Oct. 2: Seahawks at Giants , 8:15 p.m. ET

Start off October by traveling to the East Coast for this NFL road trip, which begins with a visit to Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field and concludes at MetLife Stadium for a Monday-night clash between NFC contenders.

Like with many East-based trips, you have more than one option for Sunday, including a prime-time game between the Chiefs and Jets, which promises to be the best game of the week. But as we’ve said before, why see two games at the same venue when you can maximize your travel and check two stadiums off your NFL list?

Distance between stadiums:  96 miles

View from behind the end zone at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas

Sunday, Oct. 8: Eagles at Rams , 4:05 p.m. ET Monday, Oct. 9: Packers at Raiders , 8:15 p.m. ET

Finally, a chance to travel to see NFL games on the West Coast. Start in the Los Angeles area, where the Rams will welcome the Eagles to SoFi Stadium , before making the jaunt to Las Vegas for Packers-Raiders at Allegiant Stadium , as Davante Adams will go up against his old team.

Distance between stadiums:  277 miles

Thursday, Oct. 12: Broncos at Chiefs , 8:15 p.m. ET Sunday, Oct. 15: Vikings at Bears , 1 p.m. ET

Sunday, Oct. 15: Patriots at Raiders , 4:05 p.m. ET Monday, Oct. 16: Cowboys at Chargers , 8:15 p.m. ET

Two NFL road trips worth considering in Week 6 – including a chance to see the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on a Thursday night, before taking time to head to Chicago for Vikings-Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday.

Or, do a version of the Week 5 NFL travel idea, but in reverse: Allegiant Stadium on Sunday for Patriots-Raiders, then SoFi Stadium on Monday for Cowboys-Chargers.

Distance between stadiums:  501 miles (Kansas City-Chicago); 277 miles (Las Vegas-Inglewood)

Sunday, Oct. 22: Raiders at Bears , 1 p.m. ET Monday, Oct. 23: 49ers at Vikings , 8:15 p.m. ET

Check off two NFC North stadiums on this NFL road trip through the Midwest. It starts at Chicago’s Soldier Field , where the Bears face the Raiders on Sunday afternoon. Then trek through Wisconsin on your way to Minneapolis for a Monday-night clash between the 49ers and Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium .

Distance between stadiums:  416 miles

Thursday, Oct. 26: Buccaneers at Bills , 8:15 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29: Jaguars at Steelers , 1 p.m. ET Monday, Oct. 30: Raiders at Lions , 8:15 p.m. ET

Want to travel to three different cities on one NFL weekend? A glorious chance presents itself in Week 8.

Watch the Thursday-night game between the Bills and Buccaneers at Highmark Stadium before working your way to Pittsburgh, where the Steelers will take on the Jaguars at Acrisure Stadium on Sunday. From there, head to Detroit to catch the Lions and Raiders on Monday night at Ford Field .

Distance between stadiums:  210 miles (Buffalo-Pittsburgh); 285 miles (Pittsburgh-Detroit)

View of the field at Highmark Stadium, home of the Buffalo Bills

Sunday, Nov. 5: Cowboys at Eagles , 4:25 p.m. ET Monday, Nov. 6: Chargers at Jets , 8:15 p.m. ET

Another Philly-New York double in the works here, but the quality of matchups might be too good to pass up. Start at Lincoln Financial Field for an NFC East showdown between the Cowboys and Eagles. Then on Monday night, check out a generational QB battle between Justin Herbert and Aaron Rodgers when the Chargers meet the Jets at MetLife Stadium .

Distance between stadiums: 96 miles

Sunday, Nov. 12: Packers at Steelers , 1 p.m. ET Monday, Nov. 13: Broncos at Bills , 8:15 p.m. ET

You might not realize how close Pittsburgh and Buffalo are to each other – at least until you take this NFL road trip. See the Steelers take on the Packers at Acrisure Stadium , then head north to Buffalo and watch the Bills host the Broncos at Highmark Stadium on Monday night.

Distance between stadiums: 208 miles

Thursday, Nov. 16: Bengals at Ravens , 8:15 p.m. ET Sunday, Nov. 19: Giants at Commanders , 1 p.m. ET

Having two off days between games played such a short distance from one another goes against the ethos of these NFL travel ideas in some ways. But look at it this way: There are far worse places to spend a four-day weekend than the Baltimore-Washington area.

Your Beltway NFL weekend will begin on Thursday night, when the Ravens welcome the Bengals to M&T Bank Stadium for an AFC North showdown. Then on Sunday, the Commanders host the division-rival Giants at FedEx Field . In between, I’m sure you can find plenty to do in the vibrant Baltimore and Washington areas.

Distance between stadiums:  33 miles

Friday, Nov. 24: Dolphins at Jets , 3 p.m. ET Sunday, Nov. 26: Bills at Eagles , 4:25 p.m. ET

Want to be part of NFL history? Then travel to the NYC metro area for the NFL’s first-ever Black Friday game, between the Dolphins at Jets at MetLife Stadium . Then you’ll have a free day before catching the Bills and Eagles in a big interconference tilt at Lincoln Financial Field .

AT&T Stadium Dallas Cowboys events tickets parking hotels seating food

Thursday, Nov. 30: Seahawks at Cowboys , 8:15 p.m. ET Sunday, Dec. 3: Broncos at Texans , 4:05 p.m. ET

Travel to the NFL’s two Texas venues on this four-day road trip. A week after Thanksgiving, the Cowboys get a Thursday game for the second straight week as they host the Seahawks at AT&T Stadium . From there, cruise southward (and find some BBQ along the way!) to Houston, where C.J. Stroud and the Texans will take on the Broncos at NRG Stadium .

Distance between stadiums:  265 miles

Thursday, Dec. 7: Patriots at Steelers , 8:15 p.m. ET Sunday, Dec. 10: Rams at Ravens , 1 p.m. ET Monday, Dec. 11: Packers at Giants , 8:15 p.m. ET

Here’s another three-stadium NFL road trip idea, with stops at Pittsburgh’s Acrisure Stadium on Thursday, Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday and, finally, MetLife Stadium on Monday. By the way, it sure seems like there are a ton of prime-time games at MetLife between the Giants and Jets in 2023, huh?

Distance between stadiums:  248 miles (Pittsburgh-Baltimore); 189 miles (Baltimore-East Rutherford)

Thursday, Dec. 14: Chargers at Raiders , 8:15 p.m. ET Sunday, Dec. 17: Commanders at Rams , 4:05 p.m. ET

See both of L.A.’s NFL teams – as well as the club some would consider L.A.’s honorary NFL team – in one trip, traveling between two stadiums. The Thursday night game is in Las Vegas, as the Raiders host the Chargers at Allegiant Stadium . Then, split your off days between Vegas and L.A. before taking in the Rams and Commanders at SoFi Stadium .

Also, note that there are five games in Week 15 that are designated as TBD. Three will eventually be moved to Saturday, which could create opportunities for Saturday-Sunday road trips depending on the locations. Four of the TBD games are hosted by Midwest teams: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit and Indianapolis.

Distance between stadiums:  278 miles

Thursday, Dec. 21: Saints at Rams , 8:15 p.m. ET Saturday, Dec. 23: Bills at Chargers , 8 p.m. ET Monday, Dec. 25: Ravens at 49ers , 8:15 p.m. ET

Spend your Christmas traveling to watch three NFL games on the West Coast. And yes, two are at the same stadium, but that’s OK because you’ll be hitting the road anyway.

Catch two games at SoFi Stadium two days apart: First, the Rams host the Saints on Thursday night, then the Chargers take on the Bills on Saturday night. Then, get up to the Bay Area in time for a Christmas night showdown between the Ravens and 49ers at Levi’s Stadium – one of three games the NFL is staging on Christmas Day.

Distance between stadiums:  351 miles

Thursday, Dec. 28: Jets at Browns , 8:15 p.m. ET Sunday, Dec. 31: Patriots at Bills , 1 p.m. ET

AFC playoff positioning will potentially be at stake in these two Week 17 matchups, so why not be there? First, the Browns host the Jets at Cleveland Browns Stadium , followed by a New Year’s Eve tilt between the Bills and Patriots at Highmark Stadium .

Distance between stadiums:  183 miles

Buffalo Bills Travel Package

It may be hard to admit for fans of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, but it has been 25 years since their last playoff win, one that occurred in December of 1995 against the Miami Dolphins. A quarter-century is a long time to wait, but for Bills fans, it’s not so much about the destination as the journey. With one of the best tailgating reputations in the NFL, it’s always a good time when you visit New York, and if you’re intent on joining the party, Bookseats.com can get you there.No matter the size of your group, Bookseats.com will take care of the details so you don’t have to, booking the right flights at the right price, or finding you and your group the perfect hotel for your style and budget. Bookseats.com can even get you tickets when they’re hard to come by. Even if this period sees the Bills clearly in the middle of a rebuilding stage, visiting the Bills to see them play at home (or traveling to see them play on the road) will be an amazing experience. If you want to know more, contact us today and Bookseats.com will help you plan it out.

Buffalo Bills FAQ

Where do the buffalo bills play.

You may be mistaken for thinking that the Buffalo Bills are only one of three total New York NFL teams (the others being the Giants and the Jets), however, the Bills are actually the only team that physically plays in the state! With both the Giants and Jets hosting games just over the state line in New Jersey, the Bills have the honor of being the only NFL franchise with a stadium in the Empire State, up in Orchard Park. Opened in 1973, it is located in a suburb just south of Buffalo itself, and the present name of the Bills stadium is New Era Field , although it was officially called Ralph Wilson Stadium from 1998 until the naming rights were sold in 2015.

When did the Buffalo Bills join the NFL?

The Buffalo Bills joined the NFL in 1970 when the American Football League (AFL) and the NFL merged. Prior to their inclusion in the NFL, the Bills first started in the AFL in 1960 as a new franchise.

When did New Era Field first open?

While the Buffalo Bills don’t have the oldest stadium in the league, they’re close! Having first opened its doors in 1973, only three other teams have older stadiums. Those are the Chicago Bears (with Soldier Field opening in 1924), the Green Bay Packers (with Lambeau Field opening in 1957) and the Kansas City Chiefs (with Soldier Field opening in 1972).

What is the capacity for New Era Field?

The total capacity of New Era Field is 71,780. However, for concerts and special events, the capacity can be extended to accommodate more than 80,000 attendees.

Where should I stay when visiting Buffalo to see the Bills play?

With Bookseats.com, finding a hotel is as easy as it gets. Not only will Bookseats.com arrange flights and hotels for you and your group, providing you with the best prices available, they can help you find one that’s perfect for your group’s budget and schedule. But don’t be fooled - just because you’re in New York State doesn’t mean you can take a quick little trip to see New York City! At the absolute western edge of the state, Buffalo is more than a six hour drive away. If you’re looking for things to do outside of football and tailgating, New Era Field is much closer to Niagara Falls, just 40 minutes northeast of the stadium.

Top College Football Road Trip Destinations

football road trip packages

It’s no secret that any football fan, let alone any college student, would pounce on the opportunity to travel to see their favorite team take the field. While taking a trip and dawning your team’s colors is enjoyable no matter what stadium or school you plan on visiting, some stand out with their traditions, tailgates, stadiums, and atmosphere and culture surrounding the university and college town. With college football returning in a matter of weeks, we’re here to break these down along with the must-hit spots in each location to get you set for kickoff.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide

It’s hard to argue any better football atmosphere than in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The Crimson Tide annually boasts one of the best college football in the country, along with a fan base that sure knows how to make noise and cheer on their beloved team. With a capacity of over 100,000 fans and a hard to match mystique, Bryant-Denny stadium is as coveted across the country as the team itself. Located on the University of Alabama campus in Tuscaloosa, it has no shortage of history either, having been open since September 28, 1929.

As far as traditions go, ‘Bama fans have a long history of great traditions starting with classic songs … don’t be surprised if you hear the roar of  “Sweet Home Alabama” or the cheer of “Dixieland Delight” during the game. Crimson and white “shakers” (pom poms) will be rocking before kickoff and after a big play. Head Coach Nick Saban leads the Crimson Tide during the Walk of Champions, a parade to the stadium two hours before every home game. Tailgates are well known amongst all fans, especially fraternities, and are loaded with great southern food and beverages. An Alabama specialty, the “Yellow Hammer,” is a cocktail sold at a local bar called Galletes. Fans enjoy the drink to the chants of “Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer” as they celebrate rolling over opponents. But what truly sets Alabama apart: the world-class football team with a head coach with more national championships to his name than the other 129 active FBS coaches combined.

While in Tuscaloosa, we recommend taking a Mercedes Benz factory tour, famous in the nearby area and a must see while in town. Also worth visiting is the famous Jemison-Van de Graaf mansion and Lake Tuscaloosa. As for eats, be sure to check out the smoked ribs at Archibald’s BBQ, the simple yet extravagantly delicious Five Bar, and on game-day morning, try Rama Jama’s. You won’t regret it!

2. Michigan Wolverines

The “Big House, “holding 107,600 fans and counting” is the largest stadium in the United States and Western Hemisphere and the third-largest on the planet. Shall we continue? The stadium broke ground on September 12, 1926, at the cost of over $11.5 million dollars in today’s money. Behind its massive walls and vast field is a team and Wolverines fan base full of blue and maize pride that creates an electric atmosphere.

The football atmosphere in Ann Arbor is virtually unmatched, and with a big fanbase comes significant traditions. One of the most unique is the goal post toss, where the drum major takes the stage at the north end zone before the game start and throws the mace over the goal post crossbar. Tradition has it that if the mace is dropped, the Wolverines will lose the game. The Michigan players explode out of the tunnel and touch the “M Club” banner before every home game to honor team members that have received the prestigious “M” award over the years. Tailgates are no light affair, with over 200,000 fans showing up for food and games before kickoff. Expect to hear plenty of “Let’s Go Blue!” chants during your stay at the historic Big House, watching the team with the most NCAA wins in all of college football history take the stage.

During your stay in Ann Arbor, we recommend taking a trip to the historic district of Kerrytown, where you can shop and taste some of the top local foods. We recommend trying the Cuban burger at Frida Batidos, the tapas at Aventura, and the kimchi fries found at Hola-Seoul. You better bring a postgame appetite!

3. Georgia Bulldogs

We head back to the SEC (Southeastern Conference) with this historic powerhouse found in Athens, Georgia. Holding the fifth-largest capacity in football, Sanford stadium is one of the world’s largest and most unique football stadiums . In addition to hosting one of the college football’s marquee teams, the stadium also played host during the 1996 Olympic Games, with over three billion fans watching the event around the world. The stadium’s historic hedges complemented by their real-life bulldog mascot, UGA, are as sacred as this successful franchise.

Photo Jul 19, 12 54 23 PM

Traditions run deep in Athens , and you don’t want to miss out on taking part! The chapel bell is rung after every athletic victory and academic accomplishment. Might want to pack an extra set of earplugs with a team as mighty as the Bulldogs. Similar to the Walk of Champions in Alabama, UGA has its own “Dawg Walk,” with the football team marching to the stadium across the Tate Center two hours before kickoff. As for photo-ops, don’t forget to check out the Arch, the priceless symbol of the University. Additionally, the “Calling the Dawgs” chant unifies the crowd during games and consists of a distinctive Go Dawgs, Sic them… followed by several Woof calls. In the fourth quarter, fans light up Sanford stadium with cell phone lights, a Georgia football tradition and staple. If you plan on tailgating, head towards UGA’s historic North Campus and Herty Field or Downtown Athens for some of the best pregame entertainment. One of the winningest college football programs is back for a total capacity in 2021.

Photo Apr 17, 2 07 58 PM

While in Athens, be sure to visit the state botanical garden of Georgia and bring your little ones to Bear Hollow Zoo. Head over to the famous Arch that connects campus and downtown after the game. Worked up an appetite cheering on the Dawgs? Head over to Home. Made, a mouth-watering southern staple with a world-class avocado toast, or Last Resort Grill for the potato onion pancakes.

4. Texas Longhorns

Everythings bigger in Texas. Well, how about a capacity exceeding 100,000 at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, the largest stadium in the Big 12 Conference and the ninth-largest in the world. Even the scoreboard, after its creation, was deemed the giant HD video screen in the world.

Fans take football very seriously in Texas , and it would come as a surprise if you haven’t heard a “Hook em Horns” yell in your lifetime or seen someone wearing burnt orange and white. Oh yeah, and how about the real-life Longhorn steer, Bevo, that takes the field at every home game to a Texan roar. “The Eyes of Texas” song along with “Texas Fight” are played at special marks, including for touchdowns and extra points while fans hold up the horns sign, with their fists held high in the air. One of the most intriguing and long-standing Texas traditions is Big Bertha, a massive bass drum that stands over 10 feet tall (over 90 years old) and is a marching band staple. A favorite UT tradition: Smokey the cannon. This replica Civil War cannon is fired off at the kickoff of every home game and is sure to get you fired up for Texas football too.

football road trip packages

Austin is one of the best up-and-coming cities globally, and be sure to take advantage of the surrounding area when visiting. Popular bars include Maggie Mae’s and Aquarium. Nearby the stadium, dine at Arturo’s Underground Cafe for southwestern surprises, Hoover’s Cooking for soul food classics, or Aster’s if you’re looking to try some of the top exotic food from Ethiopia. You can’t miss out on Texas BBQ either, and Franklin barbecue is a must-eat.

5. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

The Fighting Irish boast one of the most historic stadiums and franchises in the world. With names like Knute Rockne, Lou Holtz, Rudy Ruettiger, Joe Montana, and George Gipp (The Gipper), there is no shortage of excitement in South Bend. Head Coach Knute Rockne primarily designed Notre Dame Stadium, and its historic roots took place on October 4, 1930. The stadium view is as unique as any, with the classic “Touchdown Jesus” mosaic wall hovering over the north end zone inside the stadium.

You can’t talk about Notre Dame football traditions without talking about the fans. Fans across the globe love and hate the Fighting Irish with a passion for several reasons. First, Notre Dame has garnered all kinds of recognition and has been featured in the Associated Press poll over 750 times. What’s more, the team has refused to join a conference and remains independent in the sport of football.

The Fighting Irish also boast some of the world’s most remarkable and most recognizable practices. The pep rallies held before football games are a treat for any fan, with well-known guest speakers pumping up crowds. The players slap a prideful sign labeled “Play like a champion today” as they take the field before home games. The fight song, “The Notre Dame Victory March,” is one of the most well-established countries and is undoubtedly worth staying for. With the luck of a leprechaun, you might get the chance to take part in Fighting Irish history.

While in South Bend for a Notre Dame game , check out the Potawatomi Zoo, Indiana’s oldest animal park. History, art, or nature fan? You can’t go wrong with the Studebaker National Museum, the Snite Museum of Art, or the St. Patrick’s County Park. For a postgame meal, grab a pizza at Barnaby’s or celebrate a Fighting Irish victory at Legends of Notre Dame. 

6. Florida Gators

Welcome to “The Swamp, “home of Florida’s Gators. Found in Gainesville, Florida, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is where upwards of 90,000 passionate fans cheer on their college gridiron team. Entering as the largest football stadium in Florida, no easy feat, the Swamp offers valuable home-field advantage at every game. In addition, the atmosphere surrounding the Gators is insurmountable and lively; fans travel far and wide to watch the team take on some of the most challenging teams within the SEC.

Traditions begin before the game even starts, with an official “Gator Walk,” where thousands of fans line up to greet the team as they first enter the stadium and as they make their way to the locker room. Gator Growl is another beautiful and unique tradition that involves a show and concert during homecoming week. Formally started in 1932, the event featured dads visiting their sons-as the school was all-boys at the time- to evolve into what it is today. Big names such as Kevin Hart and Jay Leno tend to visit, definitely worth a trip. One of the most admirable home game day traditions is “We are the Boys.” The Florida faithful lock arms and sway to the tunes of the song after every third quarter. The most unique and well-known Florida Gator tradition: the Gator chomp. The band opens with the chomp during a pregame rendition of the Jaws theme song and follows it up during big plays and after a win. No doubt a staple that you have recognized or will soon see during your visit to the University of Florida.

football road trip packages

There is no shortage of must-hit spots within the surrounding Gainesville area, including some of the best tailgating in all of football. Florida fans know how to do it right, so correct that their annual rivalry game with Georgia has been deemed the World’s Largest Cocktail Party. Expect to see plenty of Orange and Blue while all sorts of party games are played to set the mood along with plenty of food (all kinds of BBQ) and drinks are served. The tailgates generally take place several hours before the game start, just south of the stadium on Reitz Union Lawn. As for activities and adventures during your stay at Gainesville, check out the Butterfly Rainforest and the Florida Museum of Natural History. Looking for restaurants and bars for a postgame meal or drink, be sure to stop by Miller’s Gainesville Ale House and Burrito Brothers Taco Co.

7. Ole Miss Rebels

Another SEC giant, Ole Miss, sure knows how to take football seriously. Though it has a minor stadium in comparison to others on this list, Vaught Hemingway Stadium is the largest in the state of Mississippi, and fans sure know how to pack a punch. The stadium, which opened in 1915, recently underwent renovations in 2016 that cost upwards of 25 million dollars!

football road trip packages

The Grove, the site of the Ole Miss tailgating before home games on Saturdays, is one of the premier tailgating destinations in all sports. Since the 1950s, the spot has served as more than just the culture and pride of Ole Miss fans but has brought together an entire community of Red and Blue. Fans gather under areas full of chandeliers, tents, and candelabras, waiting for the Walk of Champions to take place. This formal “walk” is formed under a famous arch put together in honor of the 1962 Ole Miss football team, which miraculously completed a perfect season. Talk about formal; Ole Miss fans show up on game day dawning their fanciest apparel, a tradition first formed to replicate women and children dressing up before the Civil War and sending their boys to battle. Crazy cool, right?! Expect to hear the phrase “ Hotty Toddy ,” it’s so much more than just a scrambling of southern words to these dedicated fans. It has served as a greeting and a unique cheer for these fans since 1926, where it was strung together in the Mississippi student newspaper. It evokes a sense of pride, glory, and cumulative success among some of the most passionate sports fans in all of the game.

Many can’t miss museums, restaurants, and bars that are full of history within the Oxford area. This is all a bonus from the consistently named one of the most beautiful campuses in all of the country, in the University of Mississippi. One of the most incredible places worth visiting is Rowan Oak. It was home to William Faulkner, a native Mississippian writer, and built in the 1840s. It features the Pulitzer prize penciled in graphite in his study, a site undoubtedly worth a peek. The Burns-Belfry museum and Multicultural center (home of profound African-American history) and the L.Q.C. Lamar House Museum contains some of the most influential moments in the history of the United States. As for top bars and restaurants , these southern folks surely don’t mess around. Head to the classic Blind Pig Pub or Funky’s (can’t go wrong with a pizza to share) to celebrate a Rebels win. Are you looking for a place full of passion, history, and traditions? This may be your premier destination to visit.

8. Penn State Nittany Lions

Beaver Stadium ranks as the second-largest college football stadium in the world, nicknamed the “White House” for its illustrious size and beauty, behind only Michigan, as mentioned earlier. It’s also known as “Happy Valley,” a term given out following the Great Depression when Penn State was not hit hard financially as the rest of the nation was. No doubt any fan of the White and Blue is happy with their team with only one winless season in their school’s history, back in 1888. What’s more, in its 128-year existence, Penn State boasts one of the nation’s best all-time home records, advancing to 50 bowl games and appearing in the prestigious AP poll 654 weeks total. The Nittany Lions have also sent several top players into the National Football League, including four-time super bowl champion Jack Ham, Hall of Famers Mike Munchak and Franco Harris, and star running back, Lenny Moore.

football road trip packages

With a team as long-tenured and high-caliber as Penn State, indeed, several traditions and rituals are as good as any in the sport of college football. Picture a stadium full of over 107,000 people all decked out in white and unified in singing “Zombie Nation.” Scary, right? With an undeniably booming atmosphere, Penn State scares opponents off the field before the first snap begins. One of the most dated traditions is the full uniform worn by the Nittany Lions. First, the helmet is solid white with a simple blue stripe down the middle, while the team has stuck to tradition and worn blue jerseys at home and white on the road since the beginning of time. Pants and cleats must be worn a particular way, and stickers are limited to the simple Penn State on the top of the helmet. Far off from the ever-changing uniforms like Oregon, Penn State has no problem being traditional and straightforward. Fans and students camp out for more than six days, and thus the nickname “Paternoville” was given, and rightfully so. One thing is for sure: when you head to Happy Valley, you will be immersed in a football culture that bleeds blue; you better be prepared.

State College in Pennsylvania is the place to be for Penn State football, but it is home to several other beautiful landmarks and premier destinations. During your football road trip, be sure to check out the hotspots fun for all ages, which include a hike through the Rothrock State Forest, collections of ancient ceramics at the Palmer Museum of Art, and the famous Discovery Space children’s science museum. For adults, be sure to check out local bars, including Zeno’s and Local Whiskey. Following a Nittany Lions win, celebrate at the Champ’s Sports Grill, which houses scrumptious food named after Penn State football legends.

9. Texas A&M Aggies

Housing the largest stadium in Texas by regular seating capacity, Texas A&M doesn’t mess around when it comes to football. Nearly 110,000 Aggie faithful form in Kyle Field, which has been around since 1904 and is the biggest stadium in the SEC as well. Recently, a 425 million dollar renovation boosted the stadium’s size and further exemplified the “12th man” mentality.

football road trip packages

Traditions run big for the Aggies , and it all begins with a “gig em” and a simple “howdy.” The two slogans are familiar all around Texas, but their origin traces back to Texas A&M. The Aggies “War Hymn” is the official fight song, and the stadium begins to erupt as they sway and “saw” with their hands in the stands. Another amusing tradition only native to the Aggies is scoring both on and off the field. Tracing back to when A&M brought their dates to the games on trains, fans would kiss their lovers when the team scored on the area. Sure, it is hard to beat this two-way score, and I must say, students must have been thrilled to keep this tradition alive. As high scoring as the Aggies can be, there is sure to be plenty of action in the end zone and bleachers.

Not far from Aggie town is Austin, which we covered for you already in our section about the Texas Longhorns (sorry, A&M fans). However, there are plenty of sites, restaurants, and bars that are native to College Station . Dixie Chicken is rated one of America’s top bars and features mouth-watering burgers to go along with its diverse beer selection. Looking for a food you can only get here, go to MAD Taco, where everything is made from scratch, including the to-die-for tamale bread. Aside from seeing the Aggies play while in College Station, be sure to stop by the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, Bonfire Memorial, and Santa’s Wonderland! I’m sure you didn’t expect to hear the word “snow” used with Texas, but you can see it firsthand on your trip.

10. Oregon Ducks

Our only Pac-12 team featured on this list, the Oregon Ducks, are a proud part of football faithful without question. With a capacity of 54,000, one would think that the stadium would be relatively normal; they couldn’t be more wrong. The stadium was built to replicate a double-sided theater , and as a result, the noise echoes without getting broken up by nearby stadium structures. Autzen Stadium is truly one of a kind, and the renovation cost was north of 270 million dollars. Yeah, you heard it right. The Nike-backed stadium is truly state of the art, and with high-class facilities comes valued traditions.

You can’t look into Oregon Ducks traditions without pulling out one of the most well-known mascots in sports: the duck. This is not just any ordinary duck, and Donald is fully capable of riding a motorcycle and doing push-ups to impress the massive fanbase wearing green and yellow. The swagger of the Ducks can be attributed to the unique uniform combinations, which include bright and colorful looks that “WOW” any sports fan. Don’t forget to throw the “O” as you cheer on alongside the Oregon faithful. Tailgates are another major commodity in Eugene, and they come in many shapes and sizes. Most notably, fans crowd at the “Mo” to pregame before the Ducks take the field.

While in Eugene, it is worth watching magnificent birds take flight at the Cascades Raptor Center and taking a stroll along the Willamette River bike trail. Adults will want to stop by the King Estate Winery, which uses local ingredients in their food and beverages. You can’t go wrong on game day with the chicken and waffles at Buck Buck or the brewery found at Agrarian Ales.

Planning Your Trip

No question taking any trip to watch a college football game is an exciting venue that any sports fan will enjoy. However, those aware of these ten schools know that they do things a little differently. No matter what colors you put on come Saturday morning, what chant and fight song you memorize by heart, or where your Alma Mater is located, the atmosphere found at these schools is unlike any other. To stay up to date on all things college football, as well as for updates on college towns and finding the best place to stay this fall on game day, visit College Weekends . The site connects alumni, fans, parents of students, and other travelers with short-term lodging and vacation rentals in college towns across the nation. Fans have never been more eager to attend a college football game this Fall … so don’t miss out on your chance to visit the most popular destinations in the country, and make sure to book your college trip before it’s too late!

Follow up from my previous review. Now it is nearing the time of the final payment(next month), we are still owed thousands we have received emails basically telling us to remove online reviews as they are not the same company. They are saying this should somehow slow down the payments. Unfortunately we shouldn’t have had to go down this route as it should have been paid by now, however the comments are all fair. This company is terrible to deal with and simply can’t honour their word.

This scam company is now operating under the name "The European Football Experience" and trying their scam again. The company owner has changed his surname to try and restart this scam over again. Don't fall for it. Also if you try to add any review to the new Facebook group, they'll just remove your comment and block you.

Date of experience : October 01, 2023

Scam of a company

Supposed to have gone to the last games of the season, Dortmund and Feyenoord. Had no contact from the company running up to the trip. Finally got told it had been cancelled due to Covid/Staffing issues/ rising costs/Rail strikes, Delete as applicable. Agreed to receive 70% of what we'd paid, up to now we have received 2 payments of £890. Last payment was June. Still owed four payments of this. No communication since. Company has now magically found a new name, The European Football Experience, although the same guy is behind the scenes again. Anyone that has been robbed by their last venture get blocked from the new page when raising any questions. Absolute scam of a company and fraud of a bloke.

An amazing experience

Went away with frt this weekend and honestly had one of the best weekends of my life. We went to Borussia dortmund v Leipzig and fc twenty v heereveen (due to fixture changes). Being in the yellow wall was incredible with a brilliant atmosphere and something off the bucket list but the best times we’re on the coach and out in the cities. Our guide nick was brilliant and a great guy and the rest of the boys on the bus were a great laugh too. Going to take a while to recover but already thinking about booking another.

Just got back from a quality weekend…

Just got back from a quality weekend with FRT . Our guides Craig & Ben were great in supplying the knowledge for the nights out & organisation in getting us all from A to B to C to D Highlight had to be the yellow wall at Dortmund , best atmosphere I’ve ever experienced & we were slap bang in the middle. Nights out in Düsseldorf & Amsterdam were great. Decent hotels though not central. Would definitely book again.

Just got back from Brussels

Just got back from Brussels, dortmund and Amsterdam and I'm a shadow of my former self. Boss sent me home early from work today I've been that useless, constantly shiiting/shivering Can't wait to go again!! Rich the tour guy was sound as, keeping us all topped up with ale and getting us everywhere on time despite the wheels literally coming of the bus(story for another time). FRT could be better with communication and the vans were ok but far from luxurious A company propped up by its tour guides. All in all a really great trip

Excellent Weekend

Excellent weekend away, guides were good especially Ben, always stopped when we asked them too, 3 great nights in Brussels, Dusseldorf and Amsterdam, hotels could have been closer but Ben saw us right in which pubs to go to Dortmund yellow wall was amazing, atmosphere was just indescribable, sittard wasn’t bad but not as good as Dortmund Would highly recommend

Do not participate in this trip.

Do not participate in this trip. It’s a massive Con and ridiculously expensive considering 3/4 of your holiday you will be sat on a tight fitting bus. The whole trip was not organised at all and was a waste of time. False advertisement of Glamorous luxury sprinters and your unlimited drinks was absolutely wrong. The drinks were stocked at the beginning and only that, the guides had no clue what they were doing and even refused us to get off for toilet trips during the LONG travels.

Date of experience : April 24, 2023

Great Weekend

Had a fabulous weekend with amazing bunch of friends. After a slow start with communication due to extremely busy schedule the weekend before, FRT were very helpful. We had WhatsApp group where all the meeting times and locations were put together. The advertised PlayStation and tv were not available but, that didn’t bother our group. It was my first time visiting Europe to watch football and this trip did not disappoint. The Schalke v Stuttgart atmosphere was amazing and one that will stay with me for a very long time. Once we get over the hangovers we will definitely be looking to book another trip next year.

Date of experience : February 24, 2023

A shambles from start to finish

4 of us booked this trip for the last game of the 2022/23 season and it did not go ahead due to the company supposedly entering administration. We were advised that the best option would be to cancel and that we would receive 6 monthly instalments to receive our money. We last received a payment at the start of July and they are now ignoring our continuous emails on when we will receive further payment. Their communication is shambolic and they clearly do not care that many customers have spent their hard earned money on their ‘once in a lifetime trips’. Do not book with this company!

Date of experience : August 15, 2023

If your a football fan then football…

If your a football fan then football road trips is a MUST. The yellow wall experience at Dortmund is something I will never forget, also witnessing PSV v Feyenoord was brilliant. Also when the company says the beer fridges open they ain’t lying just a constant supply of beer. Will definitely look to book again multiple times.

Date of experience : March 02, 2020

Been trying to contact this company now…

Been trying to contact this company now for weeks regarding booking. Husbands 50th birthday in laws than a month and I have heard nothing from them. Tried messaging them today and message won’t send and website now saying down for maintenance…..so angry they have taken my money and disappeared!!

A MUST DO bucket list experience

Lifelong memories from our trip. This is a MUST DO for the lads, just an unbelievable experience. Proper top value for money and a real personal and hands on approach. Already talking about the next one with the lads. Being part of the YELLOW WALL at Borussia Dortmund is like nothing I’ve experienced at any other ground in Europe. Any best men planning a stag do you won’t be short of beers, cheers and great memories.

Date of experience : August 21, 2022

Waited a long time to do this trip and…

Waited a long time to do this trip and well worth the wait. Great experience being in the Yellow Wall though the game wasn’t great the atmosphere made up for it. Really enjoyed the Heerenveen game and also a decent atmosphere. Hotels were all good and reasonably well placed for the night life in each city. Enjoyed the craic with Stag lads from Macclesfield Craig and the other guides really helpful. Oh and don’t forget the bus drivers. Special thanks Angelo for dropping us at London City Airport. Would recommend FRT.

Date of experience : May 17, 2022

Footy weekend never to forget!!

Absolutely fantastic trip all thanks to the planning and company of the guides. Craig was awesome and knew everywhere to go to make sure we were always in the heart of the action. Absolutely top bloke as well quickly becoming one of the lads! The football was an experience in itself. Being on the yellow wall at Dortmund was one of the greatest experiences.tge Hotels were all good quality although a little far out, but getting a decent hotel for 60 is always going to be a challenge.. well deserved 5 stars!!!

Top trip! Tickets to see Schalke which was an unbelievable experience and brilliant seats at the PSV game. Even though we received the itinerary pretty close to the date we were going, once we was there the trip was well organised and Kai who ran it could do enough for you. Travel was pretty smooth throughout and hotels were a good standard. Overall great trip.

Date of experience : February 25, 2023

Amazing weekend of beer and football

Had an amazing weekend visiting 4 countries in 4 days and experiencing the Yellow Wall in Borussia Dortmund was definitely one ticked off of the bucket list. We were supposed to go to the FC Twente game as well but we asked if we could head straight to Amsterdam for a night out instead because of the late kick off. They were more than happy for us to do this. The hotels were top quality and definitely 4 or 5 star. Had great nights out in Brussels, Düsseldorf and Amsterdam with our guide Oliver who took us to some great bars. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys beer and football. Oliver looked after us all and made sure we always had plenty of beer on the bus. We are already talking about planning another trip next season.

In a country as large as the United States, there’s no shortage of destinations and detours to explore by car . Whether your idea of the perfect American road trip entails an epic, cross-country journey or a shorter jaunt through a few of its most iconic national parks , your options are as large and varied as the country itself.

Even if you don’t have the time to drive cross-country, there are plenty of road trip routes (ranging from three days to a week or longer): classic California itineraries , New England routes that shine especially well in the fall, scenic East Coast adventures, and a variety of Midwest journeys for folks farther from the coasts.

No matter your mode of transportation—be it van, RV, motorcycle, or four-door sedan—these are 21 of the best road trips in the nation to consider.

Put a New Twist on Route 66—Make It an American Whiskey Road Trip

Plan your next Route 66 trip around thirst-quenching stops.

There are many ways to do a cross-country road trip in the USA, but these two itineraries will take you through some truly iconic American places.

1. Chicago to Los Angeles: A Whiskey Road Trip on Route 66

It doesn’t get more American than a 2,000-mile drive along the entirety of Route 66. There are endless ways to take this legendary trip (including an EV version —but to take your cross-country road trip to the next level, we recommend exploring another American pastime: whiskey.

Starting in Chicago and ending in L.A., you’ll stop by some of the leading craft distilleries in the United States, like Few Spirits in Chicago, Still 630 in St. Louis, and Red Fork Distillery in Tulsa. In between tastings, make time for detours to natural attractions, like the Grand Canyon, and quirky roadside curiosities, like Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. Just remember to drink responsibly—this is a road trip after all.

2. Bangor, Maine, to Seattle, Washington: The Great Northern on U.S. Route 2

Covering both the U.S. and Canada, a cross-country trip along U.S. 2 is ideal for anyone who wants to experience the vast diversity and expansiveness of North America. This drive runs the entire top border of the U.S. and showcases otherworldly natural wonders like Acadia National Park in Maine, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin, and Mackinac Island in Michigan. The route also passes through Canada, taking road-trippers through Ontario into Quebec—this route may focus on nature, but you won’t want to miss a stop in Montreal or Ottawa.

You’ll also get to explore Montana and Glacier National Park ( reservations may be required ) before passing the Columbia Plateau and ending in the Pacific Northwest’s largest city, Seattle. Don’t miss spending time in the Olympic Peninsula (home to Olympic National Park) for a peek at one of the most scenic places on the West Coast.

3. Dana Point to San Francisco: Driving California’s Pacific Coast Highway

The seemingly endless views of the Pacific Ocean along Highway 1 (also known as the Pacific Coast Highway) are what road trip dreams are made of, and exactly what makes this California road trip so popular. However, with so many stops along the 655-mile stretch, we pulled together a list of the ones well worth pulling over to view. Don’t miss the perfect surfing waves in Santa Cruz, seasonal cuisine in Malibu, an afternoon a the boardwalk in Santa Monica, or a night in Big Sur as you drive between Dana Point (just south of Los Angeles) and San Francisco.

4. Big Sur to Mono County: A Literary Road Trip Through Northern California

Follow in the footsteps of writers like Jack Kerouac, Maya Angelou, and Amy Tan on this road trip that takes you through literary landmarks in Northern California, such as Caffe Trieste, a meeting place for Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Alan Watts, and other bohemian writers and thinkers. This 12-stop itinerary is perfect if you live in the San Francisco Bay Area because you’ll be able to stay make these trips in one or two days.

If you love the outdoors, then this six-day road trip along the coast of Oregon is for you.

Of course, it wouldn’t be an Oregon road trip without a stop (or three) at a craft brewery, such as Fort George Brewery in Astoria, or cozy coffee shop, like Bread & Roses in Yachats.

Traveling Route 1, affectionately known as “the lobster trail,” along Maine’s jagged coastline is an exercise in indulgence. Sample lobster dishes in all forms—buttered, steamed, on a roll, or even in a decadent mac-and-cheese.

The trip starts in the quaint small town of Ogunquit , with its rare (for the area) 3.5 miles of white-sand beach. Make your first lobster of the journey count, steamed with a side of drawn butter at Barnacle Billy’s in picturesque Perkins Cove harbor. Stop at Big Daddy’s for a cone on your way to the shipbuilding center—and summer home of George H. W. Bush—Kennebunkport. Stay at the recently redesigned 150-year-old classic White Barn Inn , and consider a sailing trip for an afternoon. With lobsters cooked in ocean water, the legendary lobster roll at the Clam Shack is a must.

The Florida Road Trip You’ve Been Missing

Scenic South Walton is part of the Emerald Coast of Florida.

20. Scenic Highway 30A: A Sunday Drive Through South Walton, Florida

Florida is full of places to cruise with the top down, but it’s hard to beat a Sunday (or any day) drive along Scenic Highway 30A through northwest Florida, home to a postcard-perfect stretch of seaside towns known as South Walton.

The roughly 28-mile route through South Walton County kisses the coast for nearly all its length, taking you through gorgeous residential Gulf-front communities like Rosemary Beach, Grayton Beach, and Blue Mountain Beach . Roll down the windows and let the emerald-hued views in.

Pull over to explore, too—maybe to admire the New Urbanism architecture in Alys Beach or to swim in the clear waters at Grayton Beach State Park . (The beach here has been lauded among the best in the world.)

For a sunny road trip itinerary in Florida, skip Miami and head farther south. Beginning in Key Largo and ending in Key West, the Florida Keys Scenic Highway is often overlooked for more well-known routes up north, but it is well worth going out of your way to experience.

As the name suggests, this route is very scenic, so plan to spend at least a few days exploring it and numerous stops along the way. Some highlights include driving across the impressive Overseas Highway, stopping to admire art in the town of Islamorada, and enjoying the historic sites, food, and (of course) beaches in the city of Key West.

22. Memphis to Bristol, Tennessee: A Music-Driven Adventure

If you have about a week to spare and a deep appreciation for music, take a road trip from one side of Tennessee to the other, starting in Memphis and ending in Bristol. The eastbound trip spans genres, including rock ( Graceland ), blues ( Beale Street) and, of course, country (did you really go to Tennessee if you didn’t go to Dollywood ?). Nashville serves as the halfway point on your journey—so consider penciling in an extra 48 hours to fully explore the state capital’s greatest hits.

23. Arecibo to Condado, Puerto Rico: A Lesser-Known Side of a Well-Loved Island

In the minds of many, trips to Puerto Rico bring images of stunning beaches , delicious foods , and maybe a bioluminescent bay or two . But there’s plenty of history to be found here, too, as Puerto Rico was home to an Indigenous population known as the Taino, a heritage many Puerto Ricans embrace. That history can be explored via a road trip. Starting in the northern town of Arecibo, travel south to Ponce, then back north to Condado—along the way you’ll encounter petroglyphs, Indigenous sites, and breathtaking natural spots.
