It is located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, within a three-to-four-hour drive from New York City, Boston or Montreal. Travel & Leisure calls Saratoga Springs one of “America’s Greatest Main Streets” as well as “one of t...he best college towns in the nation,” Money Magazine says it’s one of the nation’s top 100 places to live, and Princeton Review describes it as a “perfect college town.” It’s a community rich in history and tradition. Famed mineral waters, a Revolutionary War battlefield, and the nation’s oldest thoroughbred racetrack represent portions of that history. Also, it’s a community of arts and culture.
