The Henry Hudson Planetarium is an official NASA Space Place, and hosts educational and special events programs, including Children’s Astronomy Show and Albany Star Sighting, every third Saturday of the month.
Everything you always wanted to know about slate – from geology and history to machinery, tools and usage – is under one roof at Slate Valley Museum. First Fridays of the month, exhibits celebrate art and history.
Oliva Vineyards’ tasting room is open weekends. Since the family also enjoys racing their horses at Saratoga, you may see their yearlings frolicking in the nearby stables as you sip wine. The tasting room at the award-winning Brookview Station Winery is open every day, as is the Goold Orchards Farm Store and Bakery, located on the premises.
Saratoga Winery & Tasting Room is an Adirondack style wine bar, with live music and wood fired pizza on Friday nights. It’s just four miles from downtown Saratoga, where you’ll find shopping, art galleries, nightlife, spas and mineral baths, and so much more! The region’s finest brewers come together for the 2nd Annual Saratoga Beer Week (February 19-23) and a citywide beer celebration!
And, while Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center is renowned for its ski and snowshoe trails, tubing hills, ice skating and other outdoor pleasures, if you like, you may snuggle indoors, read, relax, dine and make good use of their authentic Finnish wood-fired sauna!
