Saratoga Springs Travel Guide

Saratoga Springs has long been a popular summer resort in upstate New York, with a reputation for the arts, great museums, culture, world-class equestrian sports, a welcoming and walkable downtown, and of course the fabulous health-giving mineral springs.

Things to Do in Saratoga Springs

The natural healing springs of Saratoga are considered to offer specific remedies for various aliments. The original Native Americans who lived here believed that the waters had been offered as a gift from the gods. Start off with a tour of the springs around town, or bask in the healing waters at Roosevelt Baths & Spa, which date back to 1935.

A stroll down Main St reveals the charms of the town, with many unique little stores plus a beautiful old bookstore with rare finds and many cool cafes and bars. There's also an area dedicated to artists' studios and galleries where tourists can wander around and spark their creativity.

The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame should be on bucket lists, considering Saratoga's other main draw after the healing springs is thoroughbred horse racing. Also be sure to check out the 50-acre racetrack (racing season is late July through early September)

Other museums to see include the New York State Military Museum, The Saratoga Automobile Museum, and the National Museum of Dance. The Saratoga Springs History Museum is located in Congress Park and is where visitors will also find an 1870s casino - a must see for a glance to the glory days of Saratoga's party town past.
