This was my first trip to Gulfstream Park with a busload of adults from my snowbird club. The trip by expressway is fast but you bog down on Stirling Road East in bumper to bumper traffic approaching Hallendale Beach Blvd. The park is beautiful with newly added shops and restaurants housed in a village of Romanesque stucco Spanish Revival buildings. We ate in the Italian Restaurant "American Pie" which serves a large salad ($11.95) my wifa and I could not finish, and a cheese Calzone ($8.95) that was also shared. Service was very good. You can dine inside or alfresco. You will not leave hungry. Half the shops are still unoccupied but the village is self contained and nice to walk through. The "racino" is the smallest I've seen. It's on 2 floors and has slots and a few card tables. If you want serious slots go to Hard Rock, Pompano Park, or Coconut Creek Seminole. The main attraction is the racetrack. Plenty of history here with plaques of famous past winners. The paddock area has tiered seating and is the best I've seen. The track is gorgeous. Understand I am not a horse handicapper so I have very little to compare it to. There are screens galore with racing in real time from tracks nationwide. This is not a "family attraction. There is nothing here to interest children.
