A must stop when visiting Saratoga area. Lots of brochures, free maps, and an interesting video about the area. The center is housed in the old train station across from Congress park. Very interesting and the staff is very helpful

Always start your visit at the visitors center. They are very knowledgeable about the area and helpful. The center has brochures for most of the area. and also where the different mineral waters are ... ( There are fountains through out Saratoga with mineral waters and the center has cups so you can sample them)

Snow shoed here and it was great. The staff at the center was so nice and accommodating. They were well educated in the history and did all they could to assist us.

Probably one of the nicest old Visitor Center you can visit. A good start for Saratoga Springs! Don't miss plaque outside dedicated to Solomon Northup!

We stopped in at the visitor center before heading out to explore the Adirondack region. The folks at the center were very knowledgeable about the area and very helpful.

You should begin at the visitors center, the front desk attendant (Margaret?) was very nice and provided us with information. We found all of the attractions with no problems.

If you're looking for brochures, this is the place. I suspect though that the staff are all good hearted volunteers, but don't really have the answers to your questions

Sis and I in Saratoga for weekend. Thought we'd start our visit with a guided tour, either walking or otherwise, of some area of Saratoga. When I asked for guide, the woman looked at me like I was crazy. No, they didn't have anything like that. Hm. So, we moved on to ask about doing our own walking tour of... More
