The Village at Gulfstream Park Casino and Racetrack

Gulfstream Park Casino and Racetrack
Gulfstream Casino and Racetrack recently went through a major expansion, and a few days ago we went to inspect the final result. Visiting the Village at Gulfstream Park Casino and Racetrack is free, but if you want a frugal afternoon I suggest you leave the wallet at home as there are many temptations.

There are lots to see included in the free admission, and you can even park for free as long as you do not want valet parking. The fountains are impressive, the racetrack is enormous and the decor and architecture is grandiose.

The Gulfstream Park Casino has 850 slot machines, electronic table games and hi-stakes poker, and there is always something going on. You can see the weekly events at the Gulfstream Casino Calendar.

Gulfstream Casino Poker Hours:
