    For those of us who are Total Rewards customers living in the east (i.e., Washington, DC area), this is a bonanza. I'm a city dweller with no car. I usually rent a car, take it to Atlantic City, deal with all the hookers and pushers, and oh by the way try and get a little coin in with Caesars or Bally's. Now, I can take a $12 train from Union Station (four blocks from home), go straight into Charm City, hit the Horseshoe, hang out in the Inner Harbor/Fells Point, and then just take a train back that night. $24 round trip, no hotel, no muss no fuss. GREAT way to build from my current level of CET Platinum without having to pay for a car, a hotel (if not comped), a tank of gas, tolls...

    That is a very good area. Don't forget, you can also take the water taxi to Little Italy for some great Italian cuisine, get a REAL crab cake, and walk the 4 blocks up the street and catch an Orioles game. Ravens stadium is right there as well.

    I'm crazy about the Inner Harbor area.

    Yep...I'm on board with all this stuff. I love eating in Little Italy and then having Fells Point right there. Spending time in Baltimore is a legitimate vacation, because it's a TOTALLY different town from Washington (even though they're just 35 miles apart).

    Does anyone have an official opening date for the Horseshoe? Not that I plan to visit on opening day. I made that mistake with maryland live, only to find the line to get in the door was about 12,000 people deep :eek:

    Yup, I'm there soon after it opens. We are in Bmore all the time. If you take the train, you still have about a 20 min walk tho' and I don't understand why the light rail doesn't have a stop there.

    I agree with this, and there's one other thing that would help. If the MARC Camden Line (NOT the Penn Line) actually had a few more trains throughout the day. In other words, if I could take a 10 am train to Camden Yards for $7, that qould be even better. But in lieu of that, I can live with a $12 train (or $7 MARC Penn Line Train into Penn Station) followed by a $12 cab ride, give or take.

    Albeit a proud native of Philadelphia, where I lived for 43 years (-4 years military) and will always be a Philadelphian in every way possible, I have lived in St. Mary's County, MD since '93. I made many trips to the Inner Harbor when I still lived in Philly and since I moved here (job related). I am looking forward to the new casinos. :beer:

    I'm going to be in Baltimore visiting my BIL Sept 11-14 and was hoping that the Horseshoe would be open. Here's to hoping there are no delays in opening and I get to degen it up!!

    Ill be in Vegas from sept 2-6 and then come home for 5 days and go to Baltimore from the 11-14. Hope Vegas doesn't burn me out from gambling.

    Hello, I'm trying to find out info on Baltimore casino. I couldn't find where it would have a hotel so do you think it will have good neighbor hotels like in Cleveland? I've never been there but it sounds like there is a lot to do there even without a casino.
