The Saratoga Traveler: Day Trips, Weekend Getaways & Hidden Gems

Getting itchy feet


Today is another gloomy, rainy day. Even though the temperature is starting to rise I would still prefer more sun. I know, I know, April showers brings May flowers but it also brings floods, mold and other unpleasant things.
In anticipation of better weather I've been doing some research on fun outdoor things to do in Saratoga and the surrounding areas. I've come up with what I think are great options. I don't want to tip my hand right now but let's just say it has to do with water, fish and boats.
I'm always looking for more options so if anyone has a favorite outdoor activity please feel free to share.
Do you have a favorite campground? A favorite boat charter company? Or maybe another activity that you would like to share?

I love taking the boat out on Lake George and stopping in Bolton Landing for a drink. Have you ever hiked Prospect Mountain? It is a very easy hike but has a great view of LG!

Hi Quinn and thanks for your comment. We don't have a boat of our own so we are thinking of renting one for the day, taking it out on Lake George and then to one of the islands for a picnic. Also I've heard about Prospect Mountain but haven't been there yet. I'll definitely add it to my must do list!

Moved to Saratoga from St Louis MO (home of The Gateway Arch, Baseball Cardinals and of course Anheuser-Busch) with my family for my husband's job. In the last 2 1/2 years we've had the opportunity to explore and discover day trips, hidden gems, along with some of the most beautiful, historic, interesting and curious places in New England. So come with me and look through a Midwesterner's eyes at Saratoga and beyond. I hope you enjoy your adventures and feel free to share yours and together we can feed our travel bug!
