It’s hard to believe summer is coming to an end in Chicago, but if every fall weekend is half as beautiful as this last one- I’m on board!  Thanks to an invite from Americas Best Racing, on Saturday we ventured out to Arlington Park with friends.  I had always heard there was a horse track in the Chicago area, and after seeing how amazing it was last weekend I’m embarrassed that it took us so long to check it out.  It was so much fun!  Americas Best Racing set us up with a box where we watched most of the races (betting on horses- largely based on their names) and then we took a tour, and even met some of the horses and their jockies.  The grandstands were full of bachelor and bachelorette parties, family outings, people with kids, people without kids, and everyone just genuinely enjoying themselves.  There are only a couple more races this year, but if you’re in the area and looking for a fun afternoon with friends it’s definitely worth checking out!  We already can’t wait to go back next summer.

    I really love Arlington Racetrack :) A company I used to work for had their summer parties there every year. Also, the baby’s hat is so cute!
