7) Saratoga Springs
The twenty-one mineral springs scattered about the city makes Saratoga a unique place. The springs are public, easily accessible, and open for tastings. Just bring your own bottle. Visit the Saratoga Race Course, the third largest in the U.S., and watch Thoroughbreds compete. Lake Local is a lovely little laid-back café with simple food, full-bar, and an outdoor deck. You can even swim in the Saratoga Lake right off the restaurant while you wait for your food. Saratoga is also known for its fresh and locally grown produce. Check out the farmer’s markets on Wednesday or Saturday for a taste of over 50 vendors. The Saratoga Winery produces excellent wine made from grapes from the Finger Lakes region. Go for the wine, stay for the live music in the relaxing rustic setting. Not into wine? Head to the Olde Saratoga Brewing Company and sample over 30 craft beers.
