    Perfect spot to stop. The springs are easily accessible and mapped out to walk to. History plaques offer great info. They have lots of picnic tables, pavilions and playground. The stream is nice to see too. Lots of shade and a great nature spot.

    The Visitor Center itself is an interesting old building with toms of information available about Saratoga Springs. I signed up for a walking tour one morning and our guide, Tena was wonderful. The tour took us into Congress Park, to various springs, past the Spirit of Life statue in its beautiful setting, and best of all, into the Casino, now the Saratoga Springs History Museum. We've been to Saratoga Springs many times visiting friends, and I was so pleased to learn so much more about Saratoga Springs by taking this tour.

    Excellent selection of fresh produce and packaged products.

    Many vendors (30?)

    Many vendors selling hot food. I saw crepes, greek food, pierogies.

    Very popular.

    I was there in the rain; my shoes got a little dirty; the vendors are on the grass, not on pavement.

    The history of Saratoga is the natural springs the town is known for. Bottling the water was a big industry back in the day, and the bottling plant is a huge historic building in the centre of The Saratoga Spa State Park. While the bottling is no longer taking place, the bottling plant has been given new life as an Automobile museum.
    The Automobile museum preserves and exhibits autombiles and related artefacts. The history of the automobile, and the role of it in New York state.
    While we were there, there was a special exhibit – “Bond in Motion” – a collection of automobiles and other vehicles that were used and featured in James Bond movies.
    The Aston Martins, the submarine, motorcycles, etc – all featured in 007 movies through the decades.
    The museum will appeal to the gear head and anyone while loves cars. The Bond exhibit is a temporary exhibit, and may not be there for long – but it the museum has plenty to engage visitors.
    The cost of the museum was about $20USD, which at first, we were a little surprised by but the museum is well worth it.
    It is not a huge museum, and would be easy to do the whole thing in about an hour.
    There is parking on site.

    FREE! A lovely spot to kayak/canoe from and picnic on. A lovely yet simple park
    that sits on Saratoga Lake. Parking above and then walk down to enjoy a day on
    the water.

    Took grandchild here on a rainy day and was impressed how much she enjoyed it. Hardest part was persuading her to leave. Staff was friendly, facilities were clean and parking easy. So much to keep kids occupied and having fun. Will be going back again.

    I visited "Impressions of Saratoga" when I went to Saratoga Springs. I absolutely loved the store for its fun and unique items representing Saratoga as well as horse-related merchandise. If you love horses and/or horse racing, this store is a must to visit if you are in the area. I have bookmarked their online store and i always find things to buy. My most recent purchase was the limited-edition Belmont Stakes poster by artist Greg Montgomery which is a must for any horse racing fan. As always, it was a smooth transaction that was well-packed with quick delivery. So, whether you are in Saratoga or looking online, check out "Impressions of Saratoga"!

    4pm movie with about 8 people in theater socially distanced. Stadium seating and comfortable seats. Was good to get back to seeing something on the big screen. The same chain closed and sold the other mall venue theater. Also can rent the theater for $100 to have a family and friends movie night

    These guys are great to work with during the crew races. Hal, Jeff and Rick are a great group of guys to work with and provide our guest boatside views of our rowers.

    Best candy north of Manhattan. Delectable and varied selections from Giant gum balls to delicate, hedenistically rich truffles. Take your time and enjoy the experience. Recipients of your gift boxes of these heavenly confections will be forever grateful! Don’t forget to buy some for yourself!

    It is once in a lifetime experience. This is coming from a person who has done skydiving [Me ;)]. It was a better experience than that. What I like about this, it is an hour-long flight experience which is incredible. Brooke is just an amazing pilot. He really made sure we had the best experience possible. We took amazing pictures which are postcard-worthy. We had a bottle of champagne at the end to celebrate the history of hot air balloon. I would definitely recommend it to everyone, especially couples.
