Arlington Park Racetrack
If the Kentucky Derby isn't on the radar, and you can't quite make it to the Preakness, I'd like to suggest you visit the Arlington Park Racetrack, if I may. Situated in the suburbs of Chicago, this is truly a unique Midwest attraction that will ensure that everyone in your group has a great time. The stands are cozy, with nary a bad seat in the house, and what's not to love about rooting for your favorite steed to have a roaring finish. Mr's D's Sports Bar, your onsite food and drink provider, will more than cater to your 'day at the race' needs. So what are you waiting for? Giddy-up!
