Fun, kid-free day at Keeneland

Lexington, KY, United States
1 Kudo
Who knew Kentuckians made such a fun day of horse racing? Fall is a great time to visit the track. The weather is great, the scenery is beautiful, and people love to tailgate until the races start (or even skip the races and tailgate all day). The traffic wasn't nearly as hectic as it seemed in the spring. We had a good spot for setting up and because it wasn't too hot or too cold, we didn't need our tent. We literally set everything up on the tailgate and hung out for the morning. Then we had seats for the races (SO much better than general admission) and had a great time betting on the races. The staff is friendly and makes it easy to learn if you are new to the betting world.

Nice hotel in a good location. Corner room was huge.

Impossible parking, but good pizza. Service was good and waitress was friendly.


Keeneland Race Track
Fun place to watch the horse races and bet on the races there and the races other places. Seats are super affordable, drinks are not. The food I tried was expensive, but plentiful and very fresh.
