Race on over to the Capital-Saratoga Region, for a delightful array of entertainments from Saratoga’s famous horseracing, polo, ballet and bubbling mineral springs to historic battlefields and the magnificent state Capitol at Albany. This region abounds in rural American culture – known as an inspiration for folk-artist Grandma Moses.
You may have heard of other Capital-Saratoga Region destinations such as Fort Ann, Fort Edward, Troy, Rensselaer, Ballston Spa and Amsterdam, as well as Great Sacandaga Lake, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, the colonial houses of Schenectady’s 300 year old Dutch Village, the USS Slater, the Duck Boats, the Cambridge Hot Air Balloon Festival, the eastern end of the Erie Canal corridor and the north end of the Hudson River.
Did you know? You can explore the politics and natural and cultural diversity – past and present – of New York State in the heart of Albany with tours of the New York State Capitol Building and a visit down the street to the New York State Museum.
“After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, and so on - have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear - what remains? Nature remains.” – Walt Whitman
