Tips on parking near Levi's Stadium?

Tips on parking near Levi's Stadium?

Submitted by Autocracy Now on December 28th, 2016 at 12:44 PM

I am in the Bay Area this week and was thinking of heading to the Foster Farms Bowl (Utah vs IU) in Santa Clara tonight. I expect attendance to be dismal.

Does anyone from the area have parking tips for Levi's Stadium? I'd prefer not to pay $35+ just to park nearly a mile from the stadium, which is what I am seeing now. Thanks much.

Edit, obligatory: F the Niners, da, da, da-da da.

OT - Orange Bowl Parking/Tailgating

OT - Orange Bowl Parking/Tailgating

SIAP, but my search didn't turn up anything. I snagged some tickets with friends and family for the Orange Bowl. Wondering if anyone has any insight regarding where to park or tailgate for the game. I'm still figuring out whether I'll have time to tailgate, so any information on general parking and tailgating would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

OT: Parking at Ohio Stadium

OT: Parking at Ohio Stadium

I'm going to Columbus for the first time this year and I was wondering if there are any places to park where your car is guaranteed not to get messed with. Is this even really that big of a concern? I do drive a car that makes it very clear I am a Michigan fan (even if I took off my UofM bumper sticker I'd still have one of those little great lakes ones, a Detroit Zoo membership, Michigan plates, and its an electric blue Ford), and am a little worried based on what everyone tells me about being in Ohio. Are there any parking spots where people have had good experiences? I've thought about renting but that seems like a hassle. I'd be willing to pay a fair amount of money to know my car will be safe. Thanks!

Advice on parking at driving range (not golf course)?

Advice on parking at driving range (not golf course)?

Submitted by Bleedin9Blue on September 15th, 2016 at 7:05 PM

So I'm not usually one to tailgate, but this week for Colorado my brother-in-law has decided to change up the usual schedule.  Thus, we're going to the driving range (not the golf course) to do some tailgating.  I'm looking for any advice that people have for the driving range - specifically when we'd actually need to arrive in order to ensure ourselves a decent spot.

 

It opens at 7:00 but I don't know when people will actually start arriving considering it's a 3:30 game.

 

I'm used to walking around the areas east of the stadium so I'm not even sure how filled up the driving range gets or what the atmosphere is like.  We'll have the grill going along with a TV for the noon games but other than that it'll be fairly low-key for us.  So, even if you've got no advice, feel free to tell me what the driving range either sucks or is awesome.

 

Thanks for the input.

Parking/tailgating at Penn State

Parking/tailgating at Penn State

For anyone who will be heading to State College this weekend (or has traveled there in the past), where are the best places for the general public to park and tailgate?

I just saw that you can purchase a parking pass for the game ahead of time, but that deadline has already passed. Are there lots that anyone can park in where people can grill, toss around the football and enjoy themselves? Also, what time do lots usually open?

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

RV parking for UTL2 question

RV parking for UTL2 question

Submitted by Bleedin9Blue on August 26th, 2013 at 7:29 PM

So... I'm going to UTL2 after being forced to miss UTL1*.  For normal games, my family parks just south of the Kroger on industrial.  But, for Notre Dame my brother-in-law and I are planning on borrowing an RV to tailgate properly.  And, to tailgate properly, we're planning on going to either the Golf Course or Pioneer.

 

My question for those on the board more experienced with RV tailgating is: do I need to buy an RV pass for either the Golf Course or Pioneer, or can I just drive the RV to either location sufficiently early and expect to get in?

 

Unfortunately, online I can only find season RV passes for either the Golf Course or Pioneer - I cannot find a single game pass for either location.  Thus, if I must buy a pass and cannot find one on Stubhub, am I already too late to acquire one?

 

Or, if I can just drive up, what time would the MGoBoard recommend I show up?

 

Essentially, any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.  As you can guess, I've never personally tailgated at Michigan with an RV so I don't know all the ins-and-outs.  Therefore, any tips would be greatly appreciated.

 

*I was the best man in a wedding... in Ohio... and all her family were Buckeyes.  Still, I got to see the 4th quarter live so I can't complain too much.

U of M tailgating in Spartyland

U of M tailgating in Spartyland

Submitted by Indiana Blue on October 12th, 2011 at 10:15 AM

Just secured some tickets for Saturday and now face the task of tailgating in enemy territory.  I was at Northwestern which was very much like tailgating in AA as we were surrounded by  tons of other U of M fans.  I know this will not be the case in EL.  This will be my first trip there .. so any advice from some experienced M fans that have been to Spartyland in the past ?  My age alone prefers being away from the "student" areas as I really don't want to have some 18 year old's msu vomit all over my car that is obviously owned by a Michigan fan.

Is there a "favorite" lot for U of M fans?  Thanks for the help ... and

Go Blue!

Well it seems that UNC has it's own issues with players getting parking violations but they make tOSU's look like child's play...

 

 

North Carolina has released documents showing a group of North Carolina Tar Heels football players accumulated more than $13,000 in parking citations over a 3½-year period.

 

WTF?!?! 13 grand!!!!
