Nestled just 45 or so minutes north of Albany, Saratoga Springs is certainly a summer town. While it is a perfect Upstate New York city year-round, it really booms come the warmer months. That is purely due to the Saratoga Race Course.

For anyone who has ever been to Saratoga, that isn't all that defines the city though. There is an auto museum, an amazing concert venue with SPAC, and even a natural water spring from which the town gets its name. Beyond that, there is tons of history surrounding the city dating back to the Revolutionary War.
