Celebs Love Saratoga & Could Be Spotted Any Time!
Celebrities love Saratoga Springs for a variety of reasons, but the race course is definitely at the top of the list. Since the Spa City's best celebrity spotting season is now upon us, let's look at the celebs most likely to be seen.
"The August Place to Be"
A long time ago, the Saratoga Race Course had a slogan that some of you may remember, "The August Place to Be!" Over time, and as the racing season grew in popularity and length, the August place to be turned into "The Summer Place to Be!"
But horseracing isn't Toga's only bread and butter.
It has world-class spas, a lively downtown, great bars, shops, golf courses, casino-nightlife, gourmet restaurants, and of course, SPAC.
30-40 years ago, when people wanted an exciting night out in the Capital Region, oftentimes they'd land up in Lake George for a little change of scenery.
But over time, Saratoga claimed its place as the area's number one spot for excitement highlighted by the glitz and the glamour of the racetrack and everything else the Spa City has to offer.
Saratoga's heart beats the loudest in the Summer
