Join us as we head to the 137th running of the Preakness Stakes on our 8th Annual Preakness horse race trip to Baltimore - brought to you by PhillyTrips.com. This year, the superstars MAROON 5 and WIZ KHALIFA are performing LIVE on the main stage! It's going to be a great day for sure!
In the past, a great time has been had by all travelers on this trip; located a short distance away just outside of Baltimore. This year, we have already reserved 3 buses and are expecting yet another amazing trip. If you have been to or heard of Preakness before, the day has changed quite a bit - it's basically a large, safe outdoor concert now. See below for more information (yes, all the changes were for the better!)
This trip is the perfect "get out of Philly" day trip. If you are alone or have a group of 20 people (or more), everyone will have a blast. Over the past few years, over 1000 people have come on this trip with us from the Philly/South Jersey area - join the numbers this year....
Have a group of people you want to go to Preakness with? Would you like us to do all the work? Booking buses, getting tickets, etc and you can go for free? We thought so. We have a NEW Pack of 10 Trips for the price of 9. You can either keep the free trip for yourself or spread out the savings!
One of the best aspects of this and other PhillyTrips.com trips is that we create an atmosphere that tries to keep the group together so that you are sure to meet some great, new people (although you are always free to do what you'd like). This creates a fun time for all!

About This Trip & The Preakness:
It all starts on Saturday morning when we leave to go to the Preakness Stakes from Philly. If you have never been to or even heard of this event, it is a VERY FUN DAY (Details - www.Preakness.com). All day, we will hang out at the racetrack infield and see the races while relaxing in the sun on blankets. There are multiple live bands - including MAROON 5 and WIZ KHALIFA all day long.
To make the event safer and better, alcohol (or ANY beverage) is no longer allowed to be brought in to in the infield. Instead, our tickets INCLUDE open beer gardens all day :) Relax in the sun, beverage in hand. A great pre-shore getaway for your shore house OR just a "Get out of Philly" day trip. If you do not know, the infield has food, entertainment, drinks, big-screen TVs to watch the race, and a VERY EXCITING atmosphere. Check out their website for all the details. Spots are VERY LIMITED and at this price will sell out (the Mug Club ticket alone is $70 from the race track!). Please sign up for this trip ASAP to be sure you can get one.
Small coolers for food are welcome on this trip and can be brought in to the Infield. We will be supplying some beer for the bus, there is no need to bring any beer since you cannot take it in to the infield anymore. Click Here for what you can and cannot bring into the Infield. This is important as they WILL take and throw out items from you that cannot be brought in. Just look on that page so this does not happen to you.
After the Race/Return to Philadelphia:
After the Preakness race is over, you will board the buses and head on back to Philly. You can expect the bus to depart for Philadelphia about 1 hour after the "Preakness" Race is completed, to give people time to get back to the bus (and collect their winnings, if they are lucky).
55 dont wait for 1: Due to requests from our customers we now have a strict '55 dont wait for 1' policy. The bus will leave ON TIME, at 730pm. There will be no waiting for stragglers.
Our buses will be picking up at Champps - 2100 S Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19148 (Delaware Ave by Ikea across from Home Depot). We will have approval to park there for the day - please look for our buses and be sure to get one of our parking notes to put in your car.
