9. Try Tailgating in Chicago
Many major US cities can boast top flight teams in the country's major sports of baseball, football and basketball, and you can combine superb professional sport entertainment with great food.
One brilliant destination for tailgating is Chicago.
The food culture of the Windy City is deeply ingrained with ribs, dogs and pizza, so where better to conjoin sport and food in one trip?
Tailgate at historic Wrigley Field or Soldier Field and then enjoy a brilliant game.
While in Chicago, be sure to visit the sights too.
