Known for its passionate sports fans and active music scene, Atlanta is one of the best live entertainment destinations in the South. With the Georgia Dome, home of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, Philips Arena, where the Atlanta Hawks play, and Turner Field, site of the Atlanta Braves’ 14 straight division titles from 1991 through 2005, sports fans have it all in the ATL. Despite the storied history of these teams and their stadiums, the Falcons will play in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium when it opens in 2017, and the Braves will move to SunTrust Park the same year. Not to discount the college game, Georgia Tech Football plays at Bobby Dodd Stadium, located just north of downtown. Music lovers have options as well: Lakewood Amphitheatre and Chastain Park Amphitheatre have some of the best outdoor shows in the country, and The Tabernacle always draws world-class acts. Fox Theatre, a former movie theater, is the centerpiece of the Fox Theatre Historic District and home to Atlanta’s biggest performances.
