Saratoga Springs is a nice little getaway for the weekend. It is only 3 hours from both NYC and Boston and boasts a very nice town with loads of restaurants,fun shops,a historic battlefield,renowned performing arts and natural spring spas. They also have world class horse racing on the racetrack and in addition to racing host many horse shows-the Saratoga Classic is one of the biggest and takes place in May. Saratoga also has one of the oldest carousels in the United States.It is from 1910 and was restored(after almost going to the auction block-it was saved by some citizens in Saratoga) and put in Historic Congress Park in 2002. There are many old Victorian houses along tree-lined streets to gander at and if you are college hunting Skidmore College has a beautiful campus there as well!

  1. This design is steller! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
