Maryland will never completely recoup gambling revenues lost to West Virginia, Delaware and Atlantic City ("The shaky case for Question 7," Oct. 15). Those locations are not only an opportunity for gambling, but an inexpensive get-away that offers a pleasant ride with friends and a touch of adventure that going to the local casino will never be able to offer.

While Ocean City and Wildwood and other mid-Atlantic beaches allow horses on the beach, Atlantic City has plans to take things just a step further. The casino town, in desperate need of a makeover, has embarked on a revitilization master plan. That's great news for visitors and tourists. The plans call for better lighting, landscaping, new rides, infrastructure upgrades and a complete overhaul of the historic Steel Pier by 2015. The idea is to create a year-round entertainment attraction.

When you become the most decorated Olympian of all time what do you do -- head to Disneyland? Not Michael Phelps. He's going to Atlantic City. Phelps will be headlining a pool party at Harrah's Resort on Sept. 22. And from the looks of photos of past "Pool After Dark" parties on the resort's website , these things can get pretty wild. You think you can handle hanging with the king of chlorine? Well, all you have to do is head over to the New Jersey boardwalk and pony up $20 -- that's what admission costs.

Maybe it is the bright lights on its facade, or the vivid colors of the dining room walls, or Sinatra crooning over its sound system. Whatever the reason, Tony's Diner reminds me of dining in an Atlantic City hotel. First a note on the restaurant's exterior: It is cool. At night, seven pillars of colored lights wash the upper reaches of the restaurant's front. The lights slowly change colors. This brightens a stretch of Park Avenue just north of 1st Mariner Arena and blends in nicely with the neon glow of a sign reading "Tony's Diner."
