Travel + Leisure Features Saratoga On “America’s Grestest Main Streets” List
One of the most beautiful areas to hang out, have a drink, get a bite to eat or just take a walk this time of year is without a doubt Saratoga Springs. The historic downtown area is gorgeous and has something for everyone. That's probably why Travel + Leisure named Toga one of America's Greatest Main Streets.
Travel + Leisure had some kind words for the broadway area:
"Historic Broadway Avenue looks like a Main Street on steroids, with grand buildings of Beaux-Arts and Colonial Revival styles. It feels almost heroic in scale, but when crowds fill the streets to browse and nosh, it takes on a more accessible feel. Sidewalk cafés and benches beside flowerbeds are perfect for people-watching—especially when the tony thoroughbred set comes to town for the summer horse-racing season"
As a Saratoga High School graduate I can't say I'm surprised, but I am very proud that the city was acknowledged by such an established publication.
