Fodor's Review

The area's horse farms have produced many national champions, which are commemorated here. Exhibits include horse-related decorations, paintings, and sculptures, plus racing silks and trophies. The Hall of Fame is on the grounds of the 14-acre Hopelands Gardens, where you can wind along paths past quiet terraces and reflecting pools. There's also a Touch and Scent Trail with Braille plaques. Open-air free concerts and plays are presented on Monday evening May through August.
