We only saw the outside facade and entrance gate to Churchill Downs- did not enter gate. We pulled up to the front and parked....took photos... very busy place. I was shocked to see that the facility was located so close to adjacent neighborhoods. Please stop by Churchill Downs.

Glad we made the effort and detour to see the iconic site. Lots of construction and commotion but well worth the stop!

We went on guided tours through Churchill Downs. There is a back tour and a main building tour. Both are worth taking. The guides are very friendly and full of information.
