The Speedway is close to the Homestead/Florida City area which has numerous old southern style homes built over 100 years ago. There are wonderful walking tours of historic Krome Avenue, which include antique shops and the old City Hall Historical Museum.
But the real attraction is the cars! On display will be over 250 of the finest examples of automobiles, trucks and motorcycles.
