No it doesn't look much like a riverboat. But when "on board" you can play slots, bet on the horses, etc. Actually such activities are illegal in the great Commonwealth of Virginia. So how is it possible that such a cheesy establishment is allowed to operate you may ask? The answer is quite simple-- such activities are legal in the state of Maryland, our neighbor to the north. You'll never guess where the boarder is between Maryland and Virginia. A hint--The Riverboat on the Potomac is in Maryland while the walkways and canopies are in Virginia.
