Saratoga County Reviews

I have lived in different areas of Saratoga county for the past 11 years. It's beautiful here. Horse country. A place full of culture. Down town Saratoga Springs has beautiful parks, ballets, plays, and all styles of eateries and hotels. Saratoga lake has sailing tournaments. And the Vermont border is only about 45 minutes away! Negative part to all this is you need to have the money. Many people commute to Albany for work. I love to see the farms on the out skirts of the city. Schools are good, hospitals are good. Again, all this comes at a price. Even the smaller towns around it are nice.

Overall it's a great community. The summers are filled with activities, with lots of out of state visitors. The county is close to the lakes with lots of opportunity to partake in outdoor summer activities.
Gorgeous little small town bordering the Adirondack mountains and VT country side. The town is full of life usually with a lot of families and dogs around town! Very enjoyable!
