Winter may be just around the corner, but competition within the NFL is heating up! With only a couple weeks left in the regular season and less than 50 days until this season’s two best teams meet at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, it is time for football fans from across the country to set their sights on the coveted national championship title. This season the highly sought-after event is being hosted in the vibrant Alpharetta neighbor of Atlanta. Attending the big game is a once in a lifetime opportunity for football fans, but that doesn’t mean an awesome game day experience is off limits to sports enthusiasts looking to make the easy drive to Georgia for an action-packed weekend. Located just 22 miles north of bustling Atlanta, Alpharetta is ready to be your host for the big event. Check out our insider tips and tricks to planning your football fan getaway and how Alpharetta can make your game day dreams a reality.
We all want to support our team, but if the big game is within reach, don’t wait until the final two teams are determined to make travel plans. Ticket prices, hotel fares and transportation costs tend to rise as the event draws near, and those banking on last minute deals may be setting themselves up for an even worse case of sticker shock later. For a fun football getaway without all the guilt, plan ahead and book early.
Alpharetta offers more than 25 accommodation options located throughout the city. All hotels are centrally located and convenient to shopping, dining, and exciting activities. The upscale and affordable Alpharetta lodging options provide guests with a budget-friendly alternative to likely sold out hotels located closer to the stadium. For smaller crowds and lower fares, explore Alpharetta’s hotels and book your stay today. As an added bonus, game day visitors staying at an Alpharetta hotel are entered into the Sleep in Alpharetta Promotion. Each week through July 2019, the Alpharetta Convention & Visitors Bureau will draw a room number from one of Alpharetta’s hotels. The lucky guest staying in that room on Saturday night will receive a $100 Gift Card.
