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.
Friday - Saturday: Open24 hours
Gulfstream Casino Poker Hours:
10am – 4am daily
10am – 4am daily
Make sure to check out the Gulfstream Website for the latest up-to-date information.
At our recent visit to Gulfstream Casino and Racetrack, we went to explore the Gulfstream Village during the morning hours, so there was not much going on. At night the place comes alive with bars, live music, restaurants and at the casino. The races run from Wednesday to Sunday.
Even during the day the place is majestic, with enormous winding stair cases, elaborate fountains and expensive storefronts. There is a small road going through the city inside the GulfStream Park, which makes it a bit different and not as cozy as the city at Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Fl.
