Here is a day itinerary of just some of the wonderful activities and attractions you can experience in Saratoga!
Welcome to your Saratoga hotel, where Saratoga’s Victorian history blends seamlessly with today’s comforts. After a hearty breakfast, there are endless options to begin your day. Take a backstretch tour at the Oklahoma track, a trip through the Adirondacks ending at Lake George, a trip to a local horse farm for a tour of where the horse racing lifecycle begins, or a trip to a retired thoroughbred farm to meet and nuzzle with the retired stars of horse racing. If you’re interested in a more relaxing morning, start your morning with an authentic Victorian experience: afternoon tea at the Batcheller Mansion Inn with your costumed character guides. Continue the Victorian theme with an indulgent mineral bath, an authentic “must-do” Saratoga experience. Depart feeling invigorated but relaxed and ready for the rest of your day.

As the day goes on, enjoy a scrumptious lunch at one of over 90 area restaurants. With such a wide and diverse selection, there is no doubt that you will find something to satisfy your likings. Stop in to a restaurant or grab your boxed lunches and enjoy a guided tour of the Saratoga National Historic Park’s Saratoga Battlefield. After lunch, your step on guide will take you on a historic tour of the city, encompassing unique architecture of some of the over 1000 buildings on the National Historic Registry, and the beloved horse racing history and culture that helped shape the city and area.
