Want to get away for the day. Try racing at the Jersey Shore. Friendly place, easy parking. Well kept and nice place to relax, try to win a few dollars and get a good meal. All at Monmouth Park, a hidden gem at the shore.

I have long been a fan of this place, returning 30+ years after my first (and only other) visit. It's near the Jersey Shore, so it's not as hot as most tracks in the East. The food options in the area are plentiful (if not...More
