What's the surrounding area like?

Pimlico is located on the outskirts of Baltimore. You won't find much nearby in the way of restaurants and bars, but you will find the beautiful Cylburn Arboretum, which is especially beautiful during the autumn.

How can I spend the day in Baltimore before heading to a concert?

Well, unless you want to get up at the break of dawn, chances are you'll have to head to the track before you can do much in the city. But afterwards or the day before, Baltimore is bursting with things to do.

The Inner Harbor

You'll find a wealth of attractions at the Inner Harbor, around 20 minutes from the racecourse by car. Here you can take a cruise, visit the Maryland Science Center (one of the oldest in the country) and a host of other world class museums, take a walk through the National Aquarium, or hop aboard the 19th century warship USS Constellation. If eating can be considered an activity, there are loads of great restaurants here, particularly of the seafood derivation.

Fort McHenry National Monument

Come see the fort that was the inspiration for the Star Spangled Banner. Climb over the ramparts and imbibe history galore as you explore this national treasure.

Edgar Allen Poe House

Whether his work terrifies or electrifies you, the Edgar Allen Poe House is an excellent glimpse not only into the life of the great writer but also into the birth of American literature as a burgeoning institution. Browse the photo exhibit or stop by for lectures and events.

American Visionary Art Museum

Located in the Federal Hill neighbourhood, the American Visionary Art Museum features outsider art, from upcycled sculptures to giant whirligigs. Because there are guest rather than permanent curators, exhibitions are constantly changing, so you're always in for a treat.

Where are the best places to eat and drink near Pimlico?

There's not a whole ton near the racecourse itself, so we've selected one great restaurant nearby, one on the way, and one in downtown Baltimore to give you a few options.

Park Heights West Indian Flavour

Taste the many flavours of the Caribbean in this charming hole in the water. With jerk chicken, roti, and yes, even oxtail on the menu, you'll feel like you've travelled to another land. In reality, you'll be just around the corner from the track in Park Heights, a mere 3-minute drive from your destination.

Union Craft Brewing Company

Located just off of Highway 83, the Union Craft Brewing Company is midway between downtown and Pimlico. But convenience is only one feature it has to offer - with a full selection of domestic, foreign, and craft beers on tap, and a taproom to explore, this is a great place to grab a drink and unwind after the races.

Bookmaker's Cocktail Club

Still a relative newcomer on the scene, Bookmaker's Cocktail Club was quick to make Baltimore Magazine's 2015 list of the best restaurants in Baltimore. Featuring dishes like BBQ lentils with pumpkin chèvre toast, every classic here comes with its own twist. Truly a dining experience that's not to be missed. 20 minutes' drive from the racecourse.

Any other important information visitors should know?

If you're not familiar with horse racing culture, Pimlico provides an excellent guide, where you can brush up betting norms and learn such phrases as, "lug" and "cuppy." And don't forget your feathered hat!

View more restaurants near Pimlico Race Course

What's the best way to get to Pimlico Race Course?

Local buses numbers 27, 91, 44 and 54 via Park Heights Avenue all stop near the track. Alternatively, you could take the Metro Subway to the Rogers Avenue Station, or the Light Rail or MARC train to the Cold Spring Lane Stop, and then head to Pimlico via the shuttle buses.

Is there any parking?

There are 12 parking lots with 7,522 spaces on offer at a cost of $2 for self-park and $3 for valet. However, everything changes on Preakness Day, with prices ranging from $20 to $475 - yep, you read that right - for VIP parking. Check out the Preakness website to book early.

What kind of food and drink can visitors expect?

Pimlico offers upscale dining in reserved rooms and restaurants as well as general concessions. Menus differ on Preakness day as opposed to other times of the year. In the restaurants and reserved rooms, you will find continental breakfasts, salads, and steaks, among many other options. Draft beers, wine and liquor are available throughout the venue, and you'll find food trucks and vendors in the infield.

Does the venue have WiFi?

WiFi is available both inside and outside the venue.

What time do doors normally open?

Gates open at 9:30 AM on Black-Eyed Susan Day. On Preakness Day, the gates open at 8AM for the Infield and the Facility, and 10AM for the Village, Turfside Terrace, and Clubhouse Turn Reserved.
