Known for its naturally carbonated springs and their legendary curative powers, it was an exciting time in Saratoga Springs during the early 1800s. Touting the strong healing properties of its springs, the village attracted politicians and prominent citizens of the day. As word spread among the elite, the town began its rapid rise as the Queen of Spas. Its splendid Victorian Era hotels and restaurants, representing the Golden Age, fulfilled high society’s thirst for the extravagant.
Although horse racing and casinos have taken center stage today, its spot as an entertainment capital continues.
