Many questions from first time future visitor

First, I am flying into PHL (on a Thursday at 1 pm), can you catch buses from the PHL airport that take you directly to the casinos?? If so how much is it and how long of a drive??

On week-ends can you find $5 minium craps tables, if so where??

I think I am staying in Claridge part of Bally's. How is it, I am just looking for a place to sleep.

More questions to come....

I don't know about the buses. You might want to check Greyhound.com.

You will not find a $5 minimum craps table on the weekends. Even at 4am the minimum is still going to be $10 at least.

When you check in at Ballys, ask them if they have anything available in the tower. If they say no say "what about the main building?". If they still say no, oh well, the Claridge is not bad at all.

Claridge is not too bad. The last time I went they gave us a huge room. Only problem was that it was near the elevator so every time the elevator moved we had this wooshing sound in our room! It was a bigger room than the normal sized, so we stayed.

PPO,don't believe you can catch a bus directly from airport to A/C,but plently of buses run from Phila. to A/C.its only about a hour ride from Phila to A/C, on a Thur. shouln't be much traffic.Claridge/Ballys don't do much updating,but still good to stay at.

Thanks for the info so far..

More questions...

I will arrive Thursday March 2nd, any chance of $5 minium craps tables then???

How is the weather in March??

Now, how about alcohol laws, in Vegas you can walk down the strip with alcohol, can you walk down the boardwalk with alcohol without getting locked up??

Which is my best/cheapest option (there will be two of us) from getting from the PHL airport to Bally's? I checked on renting a car for 2 hours and it was $88 and I had to leave the car at the AC airport. Thoughts??

If go to AC airport you will have to take a cab to AC . A couple car co.s have drop off in AC itself . The bus from philly will be a lot cheaper . Even a car service ( shared limo) would be cheaper than dropping off in AC Airport and cabing it.

The rental/cab will total out at about $125 ea. way . The bus/bus about $14 ea way. The car service about $115 ea. way.

You can't walk along the BW with a beer can or or bottle of liquor . But if you are not acting rowdy you can get away with taking a drink (in the plastic cup) out of a casino onto the BW . If you get a drink at a beach bar you can't take it out .You can't drink on the beach except a the bar areas.

Thurs nt. you should find $5 craps without too much trouble .
