Be loud, be proud...and be safe.

 

I am originally from that area and I suggest a shuttle or the bus.  Fulton County is on McGruff the Crime Dog's naughty list.

 

And before anyone says anything, I haven't lived there since 1969 but visit family quite often.  Charlotte, it ain't.

It's a fine walk. Just make sure you take spring street and not peachtree, park, or forsyth.

 

those will get a little too....real for you.

Walk.  The area is perfectly fine between the Ritz and the Dome.

 

Best way is to wander south on Peachtree from the Ritz about two blocks to Starbucks, then turn right onto Luckie Street.   (or, better -- take Peachtree south about one block, then turn onto Forsyth towards the Dunkin Donuts... then go one more block to Luckie).  However you get there, take Luckie all the way to the Giant Ferris Wheel at Centennial Olympic Park, then turn left to join the Panthers fans heading over to the Dome. 

 

There are other ways you could go that would have you zig-zag on streets back and forth between the Ritz and Centennial Park, but it's more a pain in the butt if you're not a local who knows where you're going.

 

Don't take a bus or taxi. It's not worth the $$ or effort.

I'm staying at a hotel about 1.5 miles from the dome. I was told by a resident to take a cab. LOL So that's what I'll do.

 

the 1.5 miles I am away from the dome is all highway it seems. So, I'm ok with the cab part.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
