If you don’t want to walk, connect with the streetcar just outside the Peachtree Center station’s Ellis Street/Peachtree Street East exit. There is a separate $1 fee for the streetcar that you can pay via vending machine at streetcar stops or the ATL Streetcar app.
Center for Civil and Human Rights
Not a Super Bowl event, but thanks to Coca-Cola, the center will be free to the public through the end of February. Exit at the Civic Center MARTA station for the shortest walk. View MARTA directions.
MLK Jr. Historic Site
You can also explore exhibits and pay respects at Dr. King’s tomb during Super Bowl weekend. A national park, the Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site is always free and near other activities in downtown Atlanta. Hop on the Atlanta Streetcar at Centennial Olympic Park or the Peachtree Center streetcar stop next to the MARTA station of the same name for the easiest car-free commute.
