Getting there on MARTA
The Hall of Fame is a mere 6-minute walk from the MARTA Station known as Dome/GA World Congress Center/Phillips Arena/CNN Center Station. What were they thinking of when they named that thing?
The Dome Station (for short) is on the Blue and Green Lines.
You can take an Blue or Green train to the Dome MARTA Station, and then exit by following signs for State Farm Arena. You’ll go up the escalators to the street, turn left onto Centennial Olympic Park Drive, left on Marietta St, and you’re there.
We recommend the MARTA app for your mobile phone to find train schedules. And Google Maps does a great job of helping you get somewhere via the train — just switch the directions from driving to transit (it will automatically include the walking steps, turn by turn).
MARTA also has a convenient online guide for getting to the Football Hall of Fame.
