Saratoga Springs

an amazing place to live

Saratoga Springs

Your new custom home at Burgoyne Estates or Schuyler Pointe is five minutes away from the city of Saratoga Springs.

The city is perhaps most famous for the Saratoga Race Course, which opened on August 3, 1863.  The track holds a summer meet lasting six weeks, from late July to Labor Day, that attracts the top horses, jockeys, and trainers in America. The track season sees a dramatic influx of people into the city. Hotels fill to capacity, and many Saratogians rent out their homes, new and old, to visitors.  Also located in the city is the Saratoga Gaming and Raceway, a harness (Standardbred) racetrack that includes a video gaming facility, the Racino.

The Saratoga Performing Arts Center (known by its acronym "SPAC,") is a covered outdoor amphitheater located on the grounds of the Saratoga Spa State Park. SPAC is the summer home of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the New York City Ballet, and has hosted a weekend-long jazz festival for several decades.

There are several museums in the area, including the National Museum of Dance and Hall of Fame, and the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. There are also more than 20 golf courses, with the most famous, Saratoga National, located not five minutes away from the new homes community at Burgoyne Estates.

The city is also notable for its vibrant night life. Caffe Lena was one of the first venues in the Eastern US at which Bob Dylan performed, in 1961. Arlo Guthrie played the Caffè early in his career and has returned for occasional benefit concerts. Singer Don McClean is said to have composed his "American Pie" sitting at a table in the Tin & Lint, a bar on Caroline Street. A plaque marks the table today. Numerous other establishments exist on Broadway, Caroline Street, and the redeveloped Putnam Street.

Empire State College and Skidmore College are both located in Saratoga Springs. During the summer, Skidmore is one of several hosts for the Johns Hopkins' Center for Talented Youth.
