When you want to celebrate the arrival of spring, do so in Saratoga!
Sure, Saratoga Springs is well known for its summer racing season (July through about mid-September) but the arrival of spring heralds more than the blossoming of flowers, trees and shrubs: spring means you can enjoy almost all of what visitors in summer enjoy, but without the crowds.
Spring in Saratoga means you can walk along our tree-lined streets and look at our town’s many old Victorians as their gardens start to bloom. You can enjoy a tour of our historic battlefield, visit one of our 10 museums, or window shop in our cute downtown.
Want some real pampering? Well, we’re known for our springs and spas, so you owe it to yourself to visit at least one spa for day of pampering. You can check out the historic bath houses within the Spa State Park, or you can visit one of several welcoming day and resort spas that are located throughout the Saratoga Springs area.
Have you been itching all winter to get some golfing in? Saratoga Springs offers you 13 golf courses.
Looking for history? Check out the Saratoga Springs History Museum, which offers three floors of exhibits that detail how the city got its start up to the present day, including – of course – information about how it became the spot for the rich and famous to visit in summer during the 1800s and early 1900s.
You can walk pretty much everywhere in Saratoga Springs. Stay at the Westchester House Bed and Breakfast Inn and just leave your car here and start walking! You’re bound to find something to interest you!
