HANOVER, MD (May 16, 2017) -- The Cordish Companies' Live!

Together, the three highly-successful destinations attracted more than 22 million visitors in 2016.

The designation also marks the third straight year that Live! Casino received top honors in the publication's annual survey ranking attractions by the number of total visitors, with more than 10 million visitors per year.

"We are honored that Live! Casino, Power Plant and Power Plant Live! are recognized as the most predominant tourism destinations in the region," said David Cordish, CEO of The Cordish Companies. "As a family-owned company, we understand the value of treating guests like family and take pride in the level of quality and customer service offered to visitors at all of our properties nationwide."

"Live! Casino is proud to once again be recognized as the most popular tourist attraction in the Greater Baltimore region," said Travis Lamb, Executive Vice President & General Manager, Live! Casino & Hotel. "As we approach our 5th anniversary, it's gratifying to have maintained such a loyal customer base who return again and again to experience the friendly, comfortable and convenient gaming and entertainment experience that can only be found at Live!

Conveniently located between Baltimore and Washington D.C., Live! Casino & Hotel taps into one of the densest regional markets in the United States. The complex, which includes Live! Lofts boutique hotel and the future flagship luxury Live! Hotel, is next to the Arundel Mills Mall, making it the ideal setting for those seeking dynamic gaming entertainment with the convenience of world-class accommodations, retail and dining experiences all at one location. Live! Casino features more than 200 live action table games, approximately 4,000 slot machines, nine restaurants, including the Zagat-rated #1 steakhouse The Prime Rib, and a live entertainment venue.

Pratt Street's Power Plant, the Second most attended tourist destination in Baltimore, was developed in partnership with the City and is considered one of the leading entertainment projects in the United States. The Power Plant is a mixed-use project in the heart of Baltimore's World Famous Inner Harbor that features the Hard Rock Café, Barnes and Noble and Maryland's famed Phillips Seafood, along with spectacular loft offices and the headquarters of The Cordish Companies. Welcoming over 7.5 million visitors, the Power Plant continues to be one of the top family-friendly destinations in the country.

Attracting over 3.5 million attendees, Power Plant Live! ranks fourth on the list. Power Plant Live! is the redevelopment of two vacated city square blocks into an exciting $35 million, 550,000 square foot entertainment district, offering a range of restaurants, bars, comedy and a 1,600-occupancy state-of-the-art music venue. Located just one block from Baltimore's Inner Harbor and just a short walk from downtown hotels, Pier Six Concert Pavilion, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Ravens M&T Bank Stadium and other major attractions, Power Plant Live! underwent a $10 million renovation in 2011 and now boasts a soaring outdoor roof covering the main plaza, permanent stage and outdoor LED screen, stunning multi-seasonal beer garden and a circular valet entrance.
