Watch Them Run

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Folks who find speed thrilling may want to check out the Melbourne Greyhound Park. Located approximately 10 miles from cozy Melbourne Beach Florida Bed and Breakfasts, the Greyhound Park offers racing several times a day, twelve months a year. When you want to spice up a relaxing beach vacation, consider spending a day at the track.

The racing calendar features Thoroughbred Horse and Harness Racing April through December. January through March, the tracks are for greyhounds. See the Racing Calendar for more information.

Greyhound racing takes place January through March at Melbourne Park.

Jai Alai is also played here. A Basque sport akin to racket ball, Jai Alai is a fast-paced game that inspires betting. Even when no bets are placed, it’s fun to watch.

Melbourne Greyhound is also home to Grouchos Comedy Club. Some of the funniest comedians in the country stand up at 8:30 p.m., every Saturday night.

A Florida Bed and Breakfast vacation conjures images of romance and gourmet food. It’s easy to imagine sharing a bottle of wine with the person you love while admiring the setting sun, and it’s easy to picture romping in the waves and lounging on the sand. For many, this is more than enough – it’s perfect. Yet some folks need to spice things up a bit, and a day at Melbourne Greyhound Park may be just the thing.
