After doing about as good a job researching as I could, this is what I found out about tailgating in Lexington for the most part. There are reserved lots where you need a pass, there are church/business lots who charge 20-30 bucks for parking, and there is very limited free parking around the campus where people have room to set up (this wont be an option for us since we wont arrive until Sat morning and I assume these will be taken by then). Someone correct me if Im wrong.
For the pay lots around campus, are you given enough room to set up a tent and have some room? Or are all the cars eventually crammed in there which doesn't allow much of a tailgating atmosphere? Basically I need suggestions for a good place to set up so we can all tailgate and have a good time, even though we will be arriving on game day. We don't mind spending a little money if necessary. Thanks in advance!
