Over the past 18 years my husband and I have enjoyed a day at the races.
Tampa Bay Downs is just north of Tampa and we go south to Oldsmar and then east onto Race Track Road.
This business is only open in the winter months as it is way too hot in the Florida summer.
We have been lucky enough to get in free on several occasions.
The last few years the development, where we live, have got up day trips. For around $17 we get a seat in the box and a luncheon.
It is easy to put bets on. Even better when you win.
There is plenty of parking.
A fun day out for the family. So if you are in the area give it a try.
