Question: Gameday drive from Atlanta

My son and I are thinking of coming to Clemson for the Duke game. Right now our flight lands in Atlanta at 8:30am. If the game is at noon (worst case) how long will it take the morning of the game to get to the stadium. Google maps says the drive is 2 hours, but that may be very different on game day. Any help would be appreciated.

I would say 4 hours from landing to rental, to Clemson, to parking, to stadium. give or take.

I doubt it will be a noon game, as long as Duke has a decent

Plan on 2.5-3.0 hours depending on where you are parking***

Nope, not happening. You could spend an hour just getting luggage, rental car and getting away from the Atlanta airport. More likely 3-4.

I don't think the ACC has announced a game time for Duke

yet, but I figure it'll be an afternoon game.

As such, an 8:30 arrival at Hartsfield won't give you much leeway to get a rental and head towards spaghetti junction to make it into DV by kickoff It'll be a beautiful drive through the North Ga and Western SC mountains, but the closer you get to game time, the traffic close to the stadium will obviously get more congested.

My advice is to haul rumpus out the airport and get after the 2 hour drive to the stadium

How far in advance of the game do they announce a game time. The last thing I want is to travel from Toronto to Atlanta to Clemson and miss part of the game. We would come Friday night but my son has his own game that does not end until 9pm.

Usually 2 weeks ahead of time.

Thank you to all that replied.

If you land at 8:30 AM and it's a Noon Kickoff

You will not make the start of the game.
