Luxury holidays in Saratoga Springs
When to go
The summers are balmy and humid at around 25 to 30 degrees – the perfect weather for a day at the races at the Saratoga Race Course or exploring the forest-clad mountains. Visit in autumn to see the trees turn a fiery shade of red and snow start to fall on the tips of the mountain tops. Temperatures stay in the high teens until mid-October when they start to drop; it often dips below freezing by mid-November, not rising until March.
PlanesAlbany Airport is a swift 40-minute drive away and is served by most cities in the US. If flying from the UK, Europe or further afield, catch a connection stateside, or fly direct to New York’s JFK airport or to Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport; both are around a three-hour drive away. Call our Smith24 Team and they’ll find out the best route for you and book your flights.
TrainsSaratoga Springs station is a mid-line stop on Amtrak’s ‘Adirondack’ service between New York City and Montreal: it’s about a five-hour journey to either city.
AutomobilesYour own set of wheels is needed to properly explore the surrounding countryside. Saratoga Springs sits on Route 87 and is easily reachable from most nearby cities; Albany is 40 minutes away, and New York, Boston and Montreal are all roughly three hours away by car.
