"Hook 'em horns!" It's officially football season and we are ready to cheer on our Longhorns to a winning year.

Some might argue that tailgating is the best way to enjoy football season, while others might chime in to say that it's the only way because tickets are just too darn expensive to actually attend. Whatever it may be, the Longhorns are gearing up for some big, upcoming games and if you're in town for the weekend, get outside!

Here's some of the best places to tailgate with your fellow fans, chug some beers, get your hands on some delicious bbq, and sometimes even catch the game if the party goes on past kickoff. Why cheer on your favorite sport alone when you can have fun in a sea of burnt orange.
