Road Trip to Turner Field
Turner Field, one of the newer ballparks, is very comfortable, with wide
concourses, many venues for food, and
Concessions and bathrooms are easy to reach. Microbrews were bottled; I
didn't see anything on tap, but the beer was good.
Limited vegetarian fare. One can move around seats easily in the lower
deck if the park isn't crowded. There are no specific
distinctive features of the park, but all in all it's a fine venue to
watch a game. Baseball is big in Atlanta.
I can't say as I liked the tomahawk thing, but it's part of the tradition.
While Atlanta has a great public transportation system, MARTA, but it
to the ballpark. However, you can take MARTA right from the airport to
and the suburbs. From Five Points station in downtown, there is a
shuttlebus that runs to
the ballpark. Turner Field is just south of Atlanta. There's parking
outside the official lots in lots, for about $5.
