BeltLandia Weekender: September 2nd – 5th, 2016

dragon-con-logoIf you plan to stay in town for the holiday weekend, go ahead and start mentally preparing yourself for the abundance of traffic that will soon hit the Big Peach. The city will practically be bursting at the seams with the anticipated 500,000 visitors. Our suggestion: take MARTA whenever possible. 

While walking around downtown don’t be alarmed if you feel like you’ve wandered into another galaxy or on the set of Star Trek – DragonCon goers and fanatics will soon invade the city — as they have for the past 30 years!

Whether you decide to ditch the city or embrace the crowds; stay safe, have fun and say a little prayer the Hermine goes easy on us. Enjoy!
