The great thing about living in the Capital Region is ALL THE GREAT things to do, right in our backyard. And Saratoga Springs is getting more love! recently named Saratoga one of their top 30 Up and Coming Destinations to visit in the United States! We know Saratoga is great, and regionally people know - but the city's reputation seems to still be growing. Here is what the article has to say:

'Located just north of Albany, this small town is named for its mineral springs, almost all of which are naturally carbonated and have made the town a favorite resort destination for over 200 years. Saratoga Springs is home to the Saratoga Race Course, where visitors can bet on the horses. If arts and culture is more your speed, then definitely visit the National Museum of Dance and Hall of Fame. During the summer, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center hosts the Philadelphia Orchestra and the New York City Ballet.'

The track. Arts. Cultures. SPAC. The bars and restaurants. There really is a lot going in Saratoga that make it such a great spot!

If Saratoga Springs maybe is not up your alley, another New York town also made the list: Woodstock! Plus, if your are up for a little further drive, Burlington, Vermont - another really cool city - also made the top 30. Happy Day Tripping!
