Preakness Stakes Travel Tips

Plan a night out in one of Baltimore’s restaurants during your visit for the 139th Running of the Preakness Stakes on May 17, 2014 at Pimlico Race Course to celebrate your Triple Crown winnings.

Take your big winnings from the 2014 Preakness Stakes and treat yourself whether it is to a great night out or a Sunday morning brunch. If you like rustic contemporary food, try out Woodberry Kitchen. It is a little bit pricey but well worth it with a wonderful brunch spread, just around 2 miles away from the race track. It houses a full bar and even the kids can get in on the fun as it is kid friendly. For those who want to eat healthy and are environmentally conscious, this restraint boasts a farm to table menu that is sure to satisfy. You can also delight in some great seafood options with their Oysters and crab creations.

For an upscale date night you can try out the Petit Louis Bistro, which is also only about 2 miles away from Pimlico Race Course and the 2014 Preakness Stakes. Again, this Bistro is a little bit pricey but with its authentic French Cuisine, you will certainly not be disappointed. Try the Escargot de Bourgogne or the Boeuf Bourguignon and Steak Frites for a traditional French taste that will melt in your mouth.

For a more relaxed and less expensive experience, Baltimore boasts some well-known and equally delicious burger joints. Try out McCabe’s for traditional American food and great burgers, and it is also known for a great brunch, or Alonso’s and Local Hombre or The Lunch Box. For food with an ethnic flavor try out Sushi Hana for Japanese and Sushi or Grand Emporio for delicious Italian fare.

You will not have to travel more than 3 miles from the Pimlico Race Course to get to any of these amazing eateries, so make sure you venture out and try out one of these great local spots during your trip to Baltimore for the 139th Running of the Preakness Stakes.
