Known fondly as “The Ted” (for local entrepreneur Ted Turner), Turner Field is the permanent home of the Atlanta Braves baseball team. It was built in 1996 as a venue for the Olympics, but soon replaced another stadium. This team unites every age, race, and gender in the city, all gathering around for the famous “Tomahawk Chop.” Enjoy the many hometown food outlets available at the stadium, from the famous Holeman & Finch burgers to Dantanna’s seafood to Kevin Rathbun’s steaks, and even the greasy delights from Waffle House. Prices range from $5 general admission to the $100 seats behind home plate, so there’s something for every budget.

A Night at a Braves Game in Atlanta, Georgia
Atlanta is a wonderful city with a lot to offer for tourists. Common attractions include the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, the new farris wheel built downtown, and many more. As a native to Atlanta, one of my favorite things to do is to visit a Braves Game. They are great events for families, friends, and young people to go to. I'm in my mid-twenties and there is a great bar in the stadium where a lot of young people hang out on the weekends while watching the game. I highly recommend catching a Braves game if you're visiting Atlanta! Weekend and night games are my favorite!
