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

Kim B: October 2011 Archives

Some of you may or may not know that my husband Mark also has a blog on saratoga.com called Saratoga Snapshots. We went together to the Washington County Cheese Tour this past September and he took lots and lots of amazing photos. I thought I'd share some of them here.

I particularly liked this one because this father and son reminded me of when our son was younger.

Nothing more beautiful than wheels of fresh, local cheese.

There was plenty of beautiful scenery between Saratoga and Washington County.

More gorgeous, delicious cheese.  It was a cheese tour, after all.

All the cheese samples were so delicious it was hard to chose which ones to buy.  The last farm we stopped at was 3 Corner Field in Shushan.  There we chose the smoked cheese, which is smoked by monks.
It was the first time we had been on the cheese tour, which runs every September.  It was a beautiful day to take a long drive, from farm to farm.  Talk to the cheese makers and try and buy the cheeses, yogurt and other products.
My one recommendation: stop at the AT first to be sure you have plenty of cash with you.  After you sample, you'll HAVE to take some home with you.

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!
