  • Okay so I’ve never really been in the actual race area to watch racing. But I’ve been here two times for Something Wicked Music Festival. *BRING A BANDANA to cover your face with! It gets super dusty....  more »
  • Went this past weekend to the music fest held here and had a great time. The event was well organized and had plenty of food and drink options. The only negative I can say is the workers in the parkin...  more »

  • Gimme six stars if I can! Such a cool place. Friday is $1 beer and $1 hot dog night so that's the time to go if you wanna bet on the ponies on a budget. I had never bet on horses before coming here and when I did, it wasn't the thoroughbreds, it was the quarter horses. Green little things that can run for sure, but they're not experienced. PRO TIP: Bet on the jockeys. With new horses, you have to rely on the jockey to tell his ride how to race. I helped someone land a Trifecta with this very strategy. Should've bet my own money...
  • Came here for a country music festival. The area was nicely set up. It wasn't in the actual Race Park or anything. It's in that field next to the parking lot.
  • Was great. Went there for the Black Light Run and had a good time.
  • Went there for ZiegenBock Fest and watched a few bands play. I'm sorry the acoustics was not that great, but I still spent about 3-4 hours there because everything was super relaxed. I also liked that they had a lot of different options for food (including whole turkey legs!! Yum!).
  • We want to "Thank" the ones who are responsible for our stay, food, and Doctoring. This is a blessing that has been heaven sent. if it wasn't for God and you guys, we would have lost our babies. So again, Thank You!!!

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
