It’s famed for “health, history, and horses,” for its mineral waters, Revolutionary War battlefield, and the nation’s oldest thoroughbred racetrack. Saratoga is equally renowned as an arts and cultural destination. The Saratoga Performing Arts Center is summer home to the New York City Ballet and the Philadelphia Orchestra as well as a performing venue for top rock and jazz musicians. The city’s dynamic downtown area—just a short walk from Skidmore—is brimming with galleries, clubs, museums, shops, coffeehouses, and restaurants.
