Destination guide

A land steeped in history that has stepped into the present

The city is a rare treasure, on land that still offers the resource that drew Native Americans to its rolling hills hundreds _ maybe even thousands _ of years ago. General George Washington drank the mineral waters at Saratoga Springs during the Revolutionary War, and visitors still praise their medicinal value in these more peaceful times. That is, when they aren't drinking cocktails at the racetrack, wandering through scenic countryside, or gazing at the Adirondack Mountains from a hot air balloon. Your Saratoga Springs vacation rental is a passport to history, beauty, and fun.

Things to do

Saratoga Springs is home to horses and history

With more than a million people in attendance each year, the Saratoga Race Course might be the best place in the nation to hear the thunder of thoroughbred hooves and celebrate racing's long history, thrilling sports fans for decades. It's the third oldest track in the nation and offers guided tours of its unique architecture and surroundings. For those intrigued by the rest of the city's past, the Saratoga Springs History Museum offers exhibitions set in the historic Canfield Casino, built in the 1870s.


Bask in the view, bathe in the waters, buy something special

The springs have sprung, and the city still has dozens of bathhouses and spas inspired by the restorative mineral water they provide. If your Saratoga Springs vacation rental is in walking distance of downtown, you're especially lucky. It offers a mix of Victorian charm and contemporary style, and shoppers love the little vintage boutiques, and the gourmet coffee and ice cream shops. Don't forget you're surrounded by creeks, forests, and the mighty Adirondacks. Vacationers often book hot air balloon tours to get a better view of rolling countryside and mountain peaks.


Book well in advance for some warm, summer lovin'

Travelers are lured to Saratoga Springs most irresistibly from May to August, when summer highs can reach the mid-80s and the Saratoga Race Course is open and hopping. If you're looking for a Saratoga Springs vacation rental in these months, you have the right idea, but book early. Still, though temps dip into the teens in the dead of winter, winter sports and lovely snowscapes are still an excellent reason to visit the area, and you can probably find a place to stay at a bargain price.

Natural features

A world-renowned city that still keeps a hidden gem

Most people associate Saratoga Springs with its natural springs and views of the nearby mountains, but the city is also home to the Wilton Wildlife Preserve & Park, part of a region of ancient sand dunes, small but significant wetlands, and intriguing ecological communities. The preserve is home to the endangered Karner blue butterfly, a beauty that has motivated conservation efforts in the area. It also offers 20 miles of hiking trails that inspire everyone from experienced naturalists to wide-eyed romantics.
