There’s no better time to enjoy a spring picnic than during the Point-to-Point Steeplechase Races at Winterthur. Just a stone’s throw from Chestnut Run Village, this famous family estate hosts professional horse racing every spring, and you can enjoy it from a picnic blanket spread out on the hill overlooking the track on May 5.

You’ll have a perfect view of the finish line from up high, but you can also watch the equestrians zip by from a spot closer to the action. In between races, check out the rest of what the Point-to-Point Steeplechase has to offer. Grab a bite in one of the beautifully appointed luncheon tents, enjoy your own food and drink as you tailgate, or explore the array of kid-friendly activities. General admission costs $40 for adults, with discounts offered for younger attendees and Winterthur members.
