take one of the architectural walking tours. There are self-guided brochures/maps available at the Visitor Center (unfortunately I don't think it's open from Dec-Mar) which is located downtown across Broadway from Congress Park.
Fondest memory: feeding the ducks at the ponds in Congress Park. There's quite a flock of them there -- and they'll follow you around forever -- quacking quite nicely amongst themselves -- if you continue to feed them. Surprisingly, they like lots of different kinds of food -- including fruits and cooked vegetables. (I know, I know -- but I wanted to feed them, not kill them.)
Favorite thing: Durning August you should make it to the track to see some of the best racing in America. Here they are heading into to club house turn the first time around.They also present turf racing and steeplechase racing.
Favorite thing: A beautiful little waterfall on the Yaddo estate. Yaddo is a retreat for writers and artist. While the estate is not open to the public, its grounds are. The Rose Garden has been overhauled and is now used for weddings, etc.
Saratoga is one of the best walking cities anywhere. There's so much to see and do, it's safe, clean, and everything is easily accessible. It's perfect for meeting, conventions, weddings, reunions, you name it, there's something for everyone! Get the facts about Saratoga here: http://www.discoversaratoga.org/saratoga-facts/
Fondest memory: Going to the Saratoga Children's Museum with my grandaughters.
Saratoga Springs is nice and the little most get away place to go. The vegetation that surrounds Saratoga Springs gives a clean air atmosphere. For a small town, there are plenty of places to lodge before the summer months.
Fondest memory: During the summer months, Saratoga Springs sits on top of a number of feature events. The Performing Arts Center which holds concerts on the cool evening lawn of the State Park. Skidmore College which has a number of summer programs. Enjoy horse racing; Trotters and Therobreds (July/August).
Favorite thing: The autumn colors creates a beautiful picture of one of the homes (some are mansions) up on North Broadway.
Favorite thing: Autumn in Saratoga can be beautiful. But those leaves keep falling and that stop sign didn't do the job.
Favorite thing: This is a print of the original triple dead heat for the show position taken at Saratoga Harness Track.
