Broadway

You'll definitely want to to walk down Broadway and see all this main street has to offer. In fact, Broadway was named one of the top ten main streets in the country in 2016! Browse local shops, stop for a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants, or check out a gallery.

If you drive up North Broadway you can see the mansion homes that were built in the 1920s and 1930s. The street ends at the Tang Museum, which offers different exhibits throughout the year.

Saratoga Spa State Park

This 2,000 acre park contains hiking trails, public pools, mineral springs, and is home to several well known Saratoga businesses: the Saratoga Auto Museum, the National Museum of Dance, and of course the famous Saratoga Performing Arts Center.

Congress Park

Another beautiful park in Saratoga, Congress Park is home to the Canfield Casino and the Saratoga Springs History Museum. If you have kids with you, stop at the wooden carousel, open during the summer - rides are only $1.

Saratoga Lake

A few miles east of town is the picturesque Saratoga Lake, offering kayaking, canoeing, fishing, swimming, and more. Stop at one of the lakeside restaurants and dine right by the water.

Saratoga Race Track

You can't visit Saratoga without stopping at the historic, nationally-known race track. The track is in season from late July to early September. If you start your day here, you can take advantage of the Clubhouse Breakfast on the porch, which gives you the unique opportunity to watch the horses work out in the morning while you dine.

Mineral Springs

Saratoga is known for its collection of mineral springs, said to contain strong healthful and curative properties. There are approximately 18 mineral springs in Saratoga, located at various spots throughout the city. Don't leave Saratoga without tasting the mineral waters - you might be surprised, it tastes nothing like tap water!
