Saratoga Race Track

Off to the Races

Plan your next getaway to the Capital-Saratoga Region  where the activities and entertainment options are excitingly eclectic and deliciously diverse. Explore New York’s capital city of Albany  and visit the New York State Capitol, the New York State Museum, and Empire State Plaza, then head to nearby restaurants, local breweries, and parks. No matter what time of year, Albany offers fun-filled, family-friendly activities including warm weather sightseeing cruises on the Hudson River, Holiday Lights, wintertime ice skating at the Empire State Plaza, and great places to shop.

Just 20 miles west of Albany is the progressive city of Schenectady, where you can stroll through New York’s first and oldest historic district, The Stockade,  enjoy a meal at one of the city’s signature restaurants such as Chez Nous  or the Van Dyke  Restaurant and Lounge, and see an exciting Broadway show at the Proctors Theater.


A trip to Saratoga Springs  offers the thundering excitement of thoroughbred horse racing at Saratoga Race Course, entertaining harness racing and gaming at Saratoga Casino Hotel, and the chance to relax at a mesmerizing top ballet and orchestral performance in the Saratoga Performing Arts Center.

Glens Falls was dubbed “Hometown USA” in 1944 by the editors of Look Magazine. This picturesque city boasts a fun-to-visit downtown, a vibrant craft brew scene as well as a large waterfall at the southern end of the city. Its rich cultural offerings include the world-class art museum, The Hyde Collection, The Charles R. Wood Theater, home to the Adirondack Theatre Festival, and the 4,794-seat multi-purpose Cool Insuring Arena  which offers exciting hockey action, concerts, major extravaganzas, children’s theater and family-fun events.

Along with its culture, history and sophistication, the region is dotted with tranquil farms, woodlands and more than 40 scenic lakes, including the 29-mile-long Great Sacandaga. While a drive through the area’s scenic beauty is impressive, there are also opportunities to see it by cruise ship or even in a hot air balloon. Whatever you are looking for in your travels, the Capital-Saratoga Region is sure to have it !
