Turner Field – Atlanta, Ga
Families can make an easy triple play at Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves, if the need to explore hits. The first stop is at Hope and Will’s Dugout for a quick energy burn on the giant tree playhouse and slide, located in Fan Plaza. Li’l gamers will love this area too, because Xbox stations are lined up, waiting to be played. The second stop is at Scouts Alley, off the Grand Entry Plaza. Little players can see if they’ve got what it takes to play in the majors with four interactive games that test speed and accuracy. The final round is checking out Sky Field, where your sidekick can run the bases again and again, then grab a snack to refuel in the picnic pavilion area.
