If you are looking to check Turner Field off of your list, time is running short. As you may know, the Braves are planning to move to a brand new ballpark in Cobb County after the 2016 season.

Although you may find several hotels right near Turner Field, keep in mind that the neighborhood is questionable and does not offer much in the way of restaurants or night spots. Accordingly, it may be a better option to look for lodging in the downtown, midtown or Buckhead areas.
Getting to the Game
If you would like the peace of mind of having a reserved parking spot check out ParkWhiz below to find the game and grab your spot.
If you are taking the MARTA from downtown you have a couple of options to get to Turner Field.
Best option: If you don’t mind riding a shuttle, the best option is to take the MARTA train to the Five Points Station. Follow the signs to “Steve Polk Plaza at Underground Atlanta.” There you will find shuttles to the ballpark that begin running 90 minutes before game time and run throughout the game until an hour after the final out.
Be sure to buy a round trip fare at a Breeze Vending machine located at the MARTA Rail Stations and keep in mind that each person has to have their own Breeze Card/Ticket – you will not be able to share a single card loaded with several fares.
Children under 6 years old ride free with a fare-paying adult. The Bus transfers are free and loaded automatically once you tap to exit a station or enter a bus. As a bonus, parking for less than 24 hours is free at all MARTA parking facilities and the buses can take advantage of the carpool lanes and zoom past the game congestion.
Alternate option: If you don’t mind a walk, take the MARTA train to the Georgia State University station and you’ll have about a mile walk straight down Capital Avenue south to Turner Field. You may want to avoid this walk, however, at night after the game due to the questionable neighborhood.
