Your Guide to Saratoga Springs, NY.
Heading into History in Saratoga
The history of Saratoga Springs is rich and storied. If you want, go as far back as 1777 and visit the Saratoga Battlefields, also known as the Saratoga National Historical Park, the sacred land where the turning point of the American Revolution occurred. If you like nature, it’s worth the fifteen-mile drive out here. It’s a great place to hike and bike or just enjoy a scenic drive around and an educational moment at the Visitor Center.
Back toward town, garden lovers enjoy docent-led tours at Yaddo, an historic property that has served as an artist’s residency since 1926. Known for their voluptuous roses in summer, the grounds of this property inspire the artist in all of us. Come fall, you can let yourself be spooked by their “ghost tours.” No worries though because there’s no such thing as a crazy artist–right?
