Getting there

March 05, 2010

By car: It's 155 miles from Baltimore to Atlantic City, via Interstate 95 North, I-295 North, the New Jersey Turnpike and the Atlantic City Expressway. The trip should take roughly 2.5 to 3 hours (unless you get stuck in I-95 traffic, which could add hours, if not days, to the trip). Be prepared for tolls at the Millard E. Tydings Bridge over the Susquehanna River, the Delaware Turnpike, the Delaware Memorial Bridge, the New Jersey Turnpike and the Atlantic City Expressway.

By bus: Greyhound offers service between Baltimore (either the downtown or the travel plaza station) and Atlantic City about six times daily. Adult fares vary from $32 to $117 round trip. Check out greyhound.com for schedules and fare details.

Lodging: There are 18,000 first-class hotel rooms in Atlantic City, according to the convention & visitors authority. For the best deals, try an online discount service such as priceline.com, expedia.com or travelocity.com.
