College Football Hall of Fame attendance increased during the holidays and around the SEC Championship game and Peach Bowl, both of which are played at the Georgia Dome.
John Stephenson, president and CEO of the College Football Hall of Fame, is looking forward to the spring and summer, traditionally the best months for tourism in Atlanta, he said.
“We haven’t been through one of those seasons before, so we are very excited to see what it brings us.”
Stephenson told The AJC in August that the Hall of Fame needs 380,000 visitors a year to financially break even.
Both museums are on the Atlanta CityPass (citypass.com/Atlanta), a discount ticket for city attractions.
