What a nice surprise this park was. The concierge at my hotel recommended it when I had half a day to kill before I had to catch my flight from Albany. This park is so picturesque and great for a run or a walk. It...More

Saratoga Spa State Park is such a beautiful and serene park to visit. It's pretty large and you may need more than one day to see what the entire park offers. I stopped by on my way back to New York City from Montreal this...More

Wedding held at Hall of Springs. Couldn't ask for a better venue. The food, the staff, the historical ambiance was incredible. What a memory for a marriage!

Really didn’t know much about the park. There is truly a spa you can pay to go to - but need reservations. They use the mineral water from the springs. The hike to the springs from the bath houses was great and easy. Really enjoyed...More

You can push a stroller for 10 miles around the park if you want. It would be a little difficult to push a stroller in the pool however.

Last minute HELP! Need idea for this weekend! (2 Replies)
Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer advice. This site looks very informative, so here goes: I'd like to drive down (or up) to Saratoga for the Memorial Day weekend (from New York, NY). I don't mind the 3.5-4 hour drive if Saratoga Springs is as good as I hear. My plan is to go to Saratoga Spa State Park and spend the majority of the day there (Saturay). My primary goal is to visit a Spa and/or Bathhouse which I hear the State Park has. Also i'm hearing great things about Crystal...More

Not sure what you are into, but there are several interesting museums you could check out:...More
