I've got tickets to a concert at the Ferst Center at Georgia tech on Saturday night. :drool: I got a room at the Hampton which looks to be on Campus close by.
Does anyone know if it's too far to walk at night from A to B, and then back to A?

I don't mind hoofing it if it's less than a mile and in a safe area.
I'll have my son with me, and it's making my wife a little nervous.

Thanks!

Well...that is downtown Atlanta...there have been shootings there. I'd recommend Marta, but you could probably catch a ride with some of the seukers. We aren't going but if I was, I'd hook you up. Also a group walk is better.

If the Hampton is on campus, I'd walk across campus. We have walked from a braves game to a parking lot at night. Took us 30 minutes and we were safe.

My wife and I will be there also, I am with the SEukers and I am a former Police Ofc in metro Atl. Campus is still dangerous. Few months ago had a string of incidents. Group movement his highly recommended. If you want we could all coordinate a linkup with other SEukers. PM me if you would be interested. Also cabs are always avail. Just let me know.

Of course, I usually carry too though. Not as much anymore though.

You'll be fine. Ah just carry your uke and people will think your packing.
Your safe also because you'll be very close to Ikea.
