Visit some of the Saratoga area's apple orchards and pick up sweet, crunchy apples and delicious apple cider. Hike in Saratoga Spa State Park and explore the numerous trails as you soak in the fall foliage. Enjoy a stroll around town as you enjoy the historical homes and architecture throughout Saratoga.

Raining on your otherwise perfect fall day? No worries! There's plenty to do in Saratoga indoors - explore some of the musuems found throughout Saratoga such as the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. Or, you could head to a local bakery or cafe and enjoy a good book and a pastry - try the Country Corner Cafe, named one of the best Mom & Pop restaurants in the country in 2016.

If you're in Saratoga for Halloween, you'll be in for a treat! (And maybe a trick or two). The Saratoga Fall Festival is an annual fall event full of family, fun, and food. Saratoga comes alive to celebrate the best of fall and spectators can enjoy a variety of activities from magic shows and pony rides to cupcake decorating and spooky trolley rides. The weekend culminates with the long standing costume parade!
