Described as "the most beautiful track in America", Arlington began Thoroughbred racing on October 13, 1927, when more than 20,000 fans braved the cold weather to celebrate the event in high style.

Since then, Arlington International has become a social destination and perfect summer hangout to watch and wager on the amazing sport of Thoroughbred horse racing! Arlington offers beautiful venues for everything from corporate outings to reunions to weddings, and it's the ideal spot for groups of friends to catch-up, watch the ponies and meet new people. From Miller Lite Party in the Park on Friday, to Miller Lite Horses & Hops on Saturdays, to Sunday Family Days presented by Daily Herald and Lipton Iced Tea, it's always a great time!

Arlington Park is a great place for young families. There are always some kids activities going on. Plenty of indoor space for the hot or rainy days. Our girls love watching the horses come by and cheer for the one they picked. For the parents, the beers and other drink options are lovely. We take the train right to the... More

One of those places that you can go to many times and always see something new! Have been here a number of times. Cannot imagine the logistics to maintain a place like this. Truly an amazing location!

I attended a business outing here over the summer on a Friday. Our coordinator bought reserved seats and we had our choice of drinks at the bars (drink choices were ok). We spent several hours here watching races and placing bets. The weather was great and the park is beautiful to look at. For a future trip, I'd recommend 20... More

Arlington Park is a great place for a summer outing when you are in the Chicago area and looking for something different then the lakefront and baseball. The Park is beautiful, and the races are fun and filled with variety as the races move between the turf and the dirt. Food options are good and cold beverages are plentiful, although... More

My kids love this place! It's a bit pricey, but lots to check out and it's on a pretty expansive piece of property so they have lots of different things to offer. We easily killed a couple of hours there just checking everything out.
