Named for the restorative mineral springs in the area, Saratoga Springs began its life as a resort town. Nowadays the city streets offer more thrills than the public springs. Horse racing as well as gambling keep visitors busy. What was once a working-class residential area has been converted into galleries, bars, restaurants, and a tea house. After dark, cafes and bars fill with conversationalists and rock n' roll fans nostalgic for an historical cafe, Bob Dylan's first venue on the east coast. A spa state park continues to draw visitors to its healing waters. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Saratoga Springs and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
