In Pictures: "Health, History, Horses"

“Health, History, Horses” is the well-known slogan for Saratoga Springs. Visiting Saratoga Springs offers health in the healing mineral waters, history that can be seen in many Saratoga Springs Hot Spots and horses at the Saratoga Race Track and sprinkled throughout Saratoga culture. These are three of the things that make this area so popular, unique and timeless. Let's look closer at the Saratoga Springs Slogan in Pictures!

Health

There are 17 public mineral springs which offer naturally carbonated, mineral-rich waters famed for their health benefits. By the mid-1800s, tourism in the area led to the growth of Saratoga Springs, spearheaded by the healing powers of the springs. Today, you can find two locations for mineral baths, The Roosevelt Baths at the Gideon Putnam Resort and the Crystal Spa on South Broadway in Downtown Saratoga Springs. You can soak in the effervescent waters in privacy. You can also check out the countless spas in Saratoga Springs, offering relaxation and a healthy way to spend an afternoon.

Horses

"And the Race is Off!" The Saratoga Race Track epitomizes the birth of the Saratoga culture. It's not just about the big blue Saratoga Spring Water bottles lining grocery store shelves but all the horse inspired art and events that define this region most. Every summer since 1863, the Saratoga Race Track has been the focal point for exciting thoroughbred racing. The popular Travers Stakes is the oldest major thoroughbred race in the US!
