Tuscaloosa, AL, November 05, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- If you are a college football fan headed back to your alma mater for the big game, you are more than likely going to have to book multiple hotel rooms for your group, work some magic to line up a parking spot at the stadium, fight the traffic on the way to the game, and then on top of all that figure out how to safely get your vehicle home after a full day of celebrating your teams accomplishments on the field. Most would agree that as much fun as the game is it is no small task. CollegeWeekends.com
has come to the rescue of all the devoted fans out there.
The site is designed to connect football fans with short-term and vacation rental properties in close proximity to the stadium. Why settle for a seat cushion when you could have a leather couch, grill, and four bedrooms all within walking distance to the stadium? The site is set up so that you can easily view which properties are available for every game, and each property listing comes with a map that shows exactly where it is in relation to the stadium. You can also sort the available properties by proximity to the University. You may be thinking one of these tailgating meccas is going to cost you a small fortune, but on a square foot basis most of these game day vacation rentals are cheaper than hotels. When you consider the fact, that you can keep the whole group together in one place while enjoying all the comforts of home right around the corner from the stadium, the choice is simple.
This concept started to gain momentum in 2004 in Charlottesville, VA where Gordon Sutton, the company’s founder, launched his first site for the University of Virginia. The concept was so well received in Charlottesville that last May Sutton decided to take the business to a national scale and has since launched sites all over the country. The company has focused most of its efforts in the SEC where the site Ole Miss Rebel's site is leading the charge so far with 26 rental properties currently listed. The company currently has 107 of these game day rental properties listed nationwide and their inventory is growing rapidly, so stay tuned.
