Questions about BWI Amtrak Station

by Osmun79

What is the best way to reach the Amtrak station and avoid heavy traffic if coming from Parkville?

Also, can anyone tell me where the Quicktrak ticket kiosks and outbound tracks are?

If my train is at 3, how soon do I need to arrive?

From Parkville I would take I-95 South to I-395 BWI airport exit and follow signs to BWI Amtrak station. Since you will be travelling in the early afternoon traffic should not be a big problem. It is a small station but you will have to pay to park in the garage.
If you leave Parkville no later than 1:30 pm you should be OK. Allow 40-45 mins travel time Parkville→BWI Station.

I think the above directions are good, however I'd go from I-95 to 195, which is sort of an access road (right by exit for UMBC, and one exit south of exit from 95 to 695), and follow signs. Also, there is a MARC train stop in Halethrope that you'll pass, so ignore that.

The ticket kiosks are in the little hut. For southbound trains, you have to walk over a little ramp, since it's on the other side of the tracks.

But, from Parkville, I would assume it's much faster to get to Penn Station in Balto then to go to BWI....

I would get there about half hour early. The kiosks seem to confuse first time users.

Travel Tips for Baltimore

You must visit the Inner...

by jc2000

You must visit the Inner Harbor (as I have mentioned in my Maryland and Ellicott City pages). Inner Harbor is the location of many entertaining activities. There, you can go boating or ride boats. The aquarium is there too. You can have some 'fishy' experiences as you tour the whole aquarium. You can shop in Inner Harbor too. There is a science center with hands-science- activites. I recommend this for children of all ages, even adults.

Take a ride on the water taxi....

by feline01

Take a ride on the water taxi. Buy the all day pass for $5 and just get off and on at a whim. My friend Patrick whom I met in Turkey has always shown me a great time during every visit to Baltimore. He is a native and a great tourist guide. One of my favorite excursions with him was when we did a drunken Baltimore pub crawl from the Inner Harbor to Fells Point/Canton. We walked the entire thing over a period of several hours, stopping at divey bars, fancy establishments, pubs and cheesy tourist spots. Along the way, we talked, met some of his acquaintances and just had a fantastic time.

The Emerson Tower on Lombard...

by richiecdisc

The Emerson Tower on Lombard Street was built in 1912 and is just one example of the strange hodgepodge of buildings that you find in Baltimore. As I said before, the city ain't pretty, but somehow, it has a bizzare flair that begs you to get to know it better.

Best Stadium in Baseball

by Jabberjenn

Opened in the year 1993, this forever classic stadium seems to function as a world within itself.

Parking is abundant around the stadium, but the lots adjacent to Camden Yards are for parking pass-holders only. There are tons of lots near Ravens Stadium, on surrounding side-streets, and near the Inner Harbor.

Once inside the stadium, treat yourself to a few cold beers inside Bambinos Pub, or grab a sandwich at Boog Powell's bbq stand (Boog's BBQ). Microbrews can also be purchased at various stands around the stadium walkways.

Walk around the outfield down Eutaw Street to check out the baseball-shaped plaques that are embedded into the sidewalk, marking each homerun belted out of the park. Don't forget to look at the wall of the B&O Warehouse! Ken Griffey Jr. has a baseball plaque on the wall, since he hit a homerun blast that bounced off the warehouse (an estimated 460 feet) in the 1993 All-Star Home Run Derby.

Every seat in the house is a great seat. Don't stress too much about finding tickets in the perfect location. Tickets are usually easy to come by, even on game day, unless the Yankees or Red Sox are in town. If you are unable to get tickets on the Orioles website, you can always get tickets from the window with little problem.

Or, you can walk to Gate F, where Camden Yards has set up a "scalp free zone". This is a monitored area where ticketholders can sell their tickets on gameday. Because the area is monitored, these ticketholders are not allowed to sell their tickets above face value, so you will not get ripped off when purchasing last minute tickets. Most of them also carry a seating chart of the stadium so you know exactly where you are going to sit. Sellers are basically season ticketholders/locals who are not able to make it to that days game.

Camden Yards is an unforgettable stadium and a must see for all baseball fans. Plus, there is so much to see and do around the Camden yards area, a night at the game can easily be turned into a weekend of fun and excitement in beautiful Baltimore!

Federal Hill picnic

by yoshamus

Go to the yuppified Federal Hill neighborhood and visit the food stalls at Cross Street Market. Buy a very reasonably priced picnic lunch and a bottle of wine and hike several blocks to the top of Federal Hill for an impressive view of the inner harbor. Wallow on one of the park benches and take in a gorgeous sunset or watch the parade of people passing by. Nearby is the Visionary Art Museum and a waterfront park where you can catch a taxi boat across to Fells Point for nightlife, restaurants, and offbeat shopping.
