So, you're planning a trip to Yonkers Raceway?
White Plains, where it is, sits 120 miles (193 kilometers) from the state capital, Albany.
Finding a hotel within easy reach isn't too difficult, with 2 options to pick from. Spend a while comparing the Bronx Guesthouse and Hyatt Place New York/Yonkers, situated within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of Yonkers Raceway.
If you have always felt that traveling is actually more about experiencing new things than sleeping in indulgent hotels, have a look at the reasonably priced accommodations that are a few minutes drive away. You will find the Howard Johnson Bronx Near Stadium and the Rodeway Inn Bronx Zoo a reasonable distance away.
Sit back, sit back and mingle with the locals at Dunkin' Donuts, which is just around the corner. Also close by is Empire City Casino, a great establishment that serves up a selection of satisfying dishes. It's the ideal time for a drink or two when twilight begins to fall. Make a request for a locally-made beer or wine at Dan Rooney's Café & Bar, just five minutes on foot.
If you're after a convenient way to see Yonkers Raceway, just catch the metro to Mount Vernon West, 0.8 miles (1.3 kilometers) away.
