The Stadium and Neighborhood:
The largest cable-supported domed stadium in the world, The Georgia Dome is located just West of downtown Atlanta and just east of the neighborhood known as Vine City. It's about a mile from Georgia State University and is also host to the Georgia State Panthers. Open since 1992, it went through 2 stages of renovations in 2007 and 2008 and has a permanent seating capacity of over 70,000.
According to stats from early 2010, the Dome is located in the 5th worst violent crime area in the country, but on game day you probably shouldn't be too worried. The Vine City area is going through many renovations and is super close to downtown. Most of the bars or restaurants you'll want to hit up pre or post game will be to the East near Centennial Olympic Park (check our exterior map for more info).
If you aren't tailgating, then try to stop by Falcons Landing before a game. Located on International Plaza between the Georgia Dome and Philips Arena, Falcons Landing offfers free activities starting 3 hours before a game including interactive games, autograph sessions, and live music.
Lots that are open to the public are the Yellow and Green Lots and are $15, but these have less than 2,000 combined spots, so if you aren't arriving very early, chances are these cash lots will be full. Tailgating IS allowed in all lots.
There are some privately owned lots in the area, and you can reserve many of these online at Parkwhiz. Be sure to check our exterior map and look for the parking icons. One of these lots with on-site security is Atlas Parking Management at 523 Luckie Street (almost 1 mile away), which is usually around $25, allows tailgating, and offers a free shuttle to and from the Dome. For something cheaper, Atlas Parking also owns a lot at 531 Luckie Street where tailgating is not permitted but prices run about $12-$16 depending on the game.
The Dome-GWCC-CNN Metro Station and Vine City Station are both right near the stadium and is accessible on the Blue and Green Lines. There's plenty of parking at various MARTA stations, and many lots are free. The closest stations with parking are Ashby to the West or Inman Park/Reynoldstown Station to the East.
