As fans of the SEC know well, there are a lot of solid road trip destinations across the conference. Every city in the SEC has its own unique array of restaurants, bars and other means of entertainment.

What road trip to an SEC city makes you most excited? What bars and restaurants are your favorite in the conference? There are certainly a lot of options to choose from. Answer the poll below and give your recommendations in the comments!

*Due to the fact that polls can only have 10 choices, the two sets of teams that are located in the same state have been combined. Missouri and Texas A&M have also been combined due to the 2012 expansion. Feel free to specify your answer in the comments section! Alabama has been left out of the poll for obvious reasons. That being said, feel free to drop your favorite Tuscaloosa locations as well!*

It is a very tough choice for me between Baton Rouge, Fayetteville and College Station. I ultimately picked LSU due to the fantastic food and bar scene down in Louisiana. If you're ever there and want some phenomenal Cajun food, I highly recommend Parrains! Try the crawfish etouffee. You won't regret it.

College Station holds a special place in my heart because the first time I went it was my 21st. But think I gotta go with either Baton Rouge or Fayetteville for the top spot.

Good food. Good atmosphere. Just a little different.

if Vanderbilt was a little better I’d probably say Nashville, but that stadium always kind of tempers my enthusiasm for the trip.

That and Nashville has turned into party central. Many love that about it, but personally I miss the old Nashville.

It's the (cheaper) Vegas alternative for those below the Mason-Dixon, and the newest bachelor/bachelorette party destination in the south. You're telling me that isn't as appealing, Joey?

I totally agree, by the way. For my money, it's Athens and Oxford.

Nope. As someone who enjoyed the old Nashville very much, I dread going to Broadway now. lol
 
I went with Knoxville, but I agree Kentucky's very underrated.

LSU can be great but it can also be It's not so great. It's almost like going into another world sometimes. And I don't think anybody picked old miss I don't see the infatuation with it the Grove is nothing but a bunch of people crammed in like sardines.

The old miss people can bring out silver and chandeliers yeah and sear sucker suits and all this other stuff but at the end of the day it's nothing but a bunch of Mississippi rednecks tailgating in a field

Classic. I like the fresh perspective of the Grove. Knoxville is a gem of a college town, but I'd never know it if I wouldn't have visited a while back. It doesn't get the publicity like an Oxford or an Athens or Baton Rouge.

I liked the Grove, but I was more so intrigued by downtown Oxford than the Grove itself. Great restaurants and bars in that area for sure.
