When visiting South Florida, make sure to include time to visit Calder Casino and Race Course just north of Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens. A totally smoke free and clean indoor casino with a great staff is truly a wonderful experience. Do everything you can to leave time to enjoy the food and fabulous service at the Tropical Gardens...

Your web site shows a lady exclaiming she thought this was Las Vegas. She undoubtably has never been to Las. Vegas. This place is seedy, haunted looking and a casino , if you call it that, a place to definitely avoid. With 4 other casinos nearby there is absolutely no reason to come to this place. The very first thing... More

Classic Florida Racetrack. Going to Calder is like stepping back in time. The place has an old school charm about it.

I have been there many times, buffet restaurant on the first floor used to be excellent until management got greedy and started charging extra $$$ for the good stuff, some of the best pizza in Miami is made there. the casino is a rip-off, avoid it. Good horse races for enthusiast.

If you have horse crazy kids, Calder offers a free up-close and personal view from the stables to prep, post and the winners circle. It's a horse track and designed with bettors in mind, but again it's free - unless of course you want to place your bets on the thoroughbreds racing down the track then of course, you're on... More

My husband is a horserace fan. We fit a track in most our vacation. This is our second visit to Calder and might be our last. I myself am not a fan but seem to fine ways to enjoy the experience in other tracks. Last time we were here my daughter came along. I recall having a good time. Nice... More

I went for the Preakness stakes. I was looking for a teller to bet and a place to count my money, when I turned around a man locked eyes with me. It was awkward. He kept going just past me and stopped to tie his shoe. I went the other way and jumped on the escalator. About half way up... More
