Visit Oaklawn Race Track from...
Visit Oaklawn Race Track from January to March for thoroughbred racing of the highest caliber. The Jockey Club is a classey way to wager, watch and dine all at your own table. You won't find better boiled shrimp or corned beef sandwiches ANYWHERE. Memberships are sold, and these are given priority reservations, but you get on a waiting list and be admitted for a $15.00 per person fee (it's worth it!).
Crystal Falls/Magic Springs
Okay, I'm from Texas so I'm used to everything being big....lol This place is like a mini Six Flags. Their biggest roller coaster is about as big as Six Flags Over Texas medium roller coaster. There is a small water park there. It was fun though. There were no long lines, and since it is smaller then Six Flags there is not as much walking. parking is great. The water park is great to cool off at, and the view from the top of the roller coaster is beautiful (mountains-well big hills). I would suggest getting your tickets through your hotel as a package.
A place to miss

"Hotels are grand"
The arlington is so much fun, with jazz, a beautiful ballroom, & the waitresses at the bar are wonderful!
