There are some very stylish places to horse around in Saratoga Springs. Find year-round thrills at Saratoga Gaming and Raceway
, and an exciting summer season at Saratoga Race Course
and world-class Saratoga Polo
matches. With everything going on, people watching is a favorite pastime here. Walk down Broadway and pick your spot at a sidewalk café. Then take in the Victorian architecture as you check out fashionable boutiques and grand old hotels with gingerbread porches and gothic gables. Every summer, Saratoga Performing Arts Center
presents popular concerts, a jazz festival, the New York City Ballet and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
and past glory, just choose your museum. The National Museum of Dance
, the National Museum of Racing
, the New York State Military Museum
and the Saratoga Automobile Museum
are all located in Saratoga Springs.
And what about these springs people keep mentioning? Look for mineral springs in city parks and at Saratoga Spa State Park
, where you can sample the waters (bring some bottles to fill). Reserve a bubbling mineral bath and massage at the Roosevelt Baths & Spa
in the Park, or the Crystal Spa
just down the street.
