    How about a review of the RV “tailgate” experience? Where do you go and how much is it to park?

      Hi Neal! For the Georgia Tech-Tennessee game, we actually tailgated at GT. A couple of our regulars did buy RV passes at the Marshalling Yard. But these passes were quite pricey and were limited to half the Labor Day weekend due to the two games. Hence the reason we tailgated at Tech- cheaper passes plus we could arrive anytime Saturday compared to only Sunday afternoon. Longer tailgate FTW! But for Falcons and United games, this will be the spot for RV tailgating.

      For car/SUV/truck tailgating, the best spot is still The Gulch, aka Lot A, the area under the Ga Dome. The pre-game fun was in full effect before the Labor Day weekend college football games.

      Be careful when you are buying parking for any game or event at Mercedes. Many are parking decks and do not allow any tailgating in them. I recommend that you buy either of these lots ahead of time. They are pretty popular so don’t wait till the last minute!

      The tailgating scene in the tailgating permitted lots hasn’t changed much from when it was the Georgia Dome. Still a bunch of fun. Lots of people with grills and smokers. Dance offs. And just a giant party.
