If you want to live in a place that gives you the freedom to live on farmland and still be within ten minutes of your office job, Saratoga is the place to be. The attractions here have been drawing visitors for centuries; now more and more people are coming to stay. Saratoga has more than a couple “claims to fame”: healing mineral waters used by the Iroquois in the 1700’s, the invention of the potato chip in 1853, and perhaps most famously, the Battle of Saratoga which has been called the “Turning Point of the American Revolution”. The city is also very well-known for the Saratoga Race Course which opened in 1863. The thoroughbred track is the oldest continuously operating sporting event of any kind in the United States.
It’s quite clear that no matter where you are within the Hudson Mohawk Region, you will never find yourself longing for something to do. From historical sites to enthralling sporting events…this region is the place to be.
