    We spent a morning here exploring the park and it was truly beautiful! There is plenty to see and we even got to enjoy toasting marshmallows at the ranger's office. We'd definitely visit again anytime we are in Saratoga Springs!

    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.

    Outstanding museum, loaded with history about horse racing throughout the years. The two men at the welcome desk were unbelievably welcoming and knowledgeable. What a welcomed gift to know they Honor Veteran's.....the movie wasn't working so they gave us 2 passes to return .

    Nice weekend trip to Saratoga while dropping off child to near by college for the upcoming semester. Broadway has nice shops and restaurants. We explored the history and heritage of Saratoga. Very interesting indeed. We went to the Saratoga Heritage Area Visitor Center and Nancy P was extremely helpful in assisting us and detailing the history of the area and good sites to visit. Nancy P was also very nice and pleasant to converse with.

    Yaddo Gardens is a lovely place to reflect or stroll around the gardens. It is very peaceful, and the flowers and statues are beautiful. I especially enjoyed seeing all the different varieties and colors of the gorgeous roses in bloom when we visited the third week in August.

    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.

    I enjoyed the exhibits at the museum. I especially loved the piece that had a wall of paper Roses. I loved the simplicity and beauty of it. It sparked me into believing I can decorate my walls beautiful without the traditional pictures. The exhibit on the Mezzanine is a must see. At first I thought it was just a sitting area but then you will notice how common buckets can be made artistic plant holders. The chairs were also beautiful woven. My visit was definitely an inspiring way to spend a winter's Sunday.

    The museum hosts a very comprehensive range of exhibits spanning the countries history of military enagagements and does an excellent job of summarizing the broadstrokes of American military conflicts while also focusing on New York's role in such conflicts. One could dedicate an entire visit to a particular section of the museum with plenty more to return to see. There are helpful guides available to answer questions and admission is free.
