Main Street has long been a small-town staple across the United States. Picture locally owned businesses and meticulously decorated window fronts – where communities can come together, and a place to take pride in.
Today main streets are making a comeback for all the right reasons and it’s no surprise that Saratoga is at the top of the list!
Travel & Leisure has named Saratoga Springs one of ‘America’s Greatest Main Streets!’
The article describes Saratoga’s Broadway Avenue as ‘a Main Street on steroids, with grand buildings of Beaux-Arts and Colonial Revival styles’ and ‘heroic in scale.’
But the article also mentions Saratoga’s accessibility, noting the enticing ‘sidewalk cafes and benches beside flowerbeds’ which are ‘perfect for people-watching–especially when the tony thoroughbred set comes to town for the summer horse-racing season.’
With all the amenities of a big city and the charm of a small town, it’s no wonder the Spa City made the list! It has managed to keep its historic feel, while offering the best of hot new businesses and restaurants.
