Review of Arlington Park

Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

Great day out, you can bring a cooler of sandwiches and pop, I think (call and check) because a $9 slice of floppy food service pizza is no fun.

Unlike someone else said on here, the track is EXTREMELY easy to get to from Downtown. It has it's own Metra train stop! It's a fun time with races going off every half hour or so. Great time for families (you can bring your own picnic), or work outings.

A great place to spend a summer afternoon. Seats are almost all affordable for any of the "99%", the betting process is simplified for the ingenue, the place is immaculate, and the races are competitive. Too, it's 45 minutes from the Loop by train.
