I spent a lovely weekend in Saratoga Springs, NY last month with some of my family. My beautiful little cousin was graduating from college, and I had long promised to visit her. So this was my last chance to venture up north for a little while. I was absolutely enchanted with Saratoga. I had always heard it was charming, but I was completely blown away by its old world character and beauty. The countryside around the town is so calm, and it reminds you to slow down a little bit. I would love to return to the area for a weekend retreat in the future. Saratoga, you have won me over.
