I am in the process of planning a birthday trip to Atlanta for Games 3/4. I have never been to Atlanta or that part of the country in general.
I'm looking for any help about cheap flights, best ticket options, hotels, bars near the stadium, etc.
Basically, I'm flying out Saturday night after work on a red eye and leaving on a Monday red eye so I will only need a hotel for one night (Sunday). Are there any good but cheap-ish hotels near Turner Field?
Also, what's the neighborhood like around the stadium? Is it more like the surrounding Candlestick Area (ie not ideal to walk through at night) or more like AT&T (upscale bars/restaurants)?
Lastly, are there any undesirable sections/seats at Turner Field. I don't want to splurge on this trip only to find myself stuck behind a pillar or something.
Any help would be appreciated. Hopefully I can get this trip together and make sure there's a nice contingent of Giants fans out there on the road.
