The National Dance and Hall of Fame Museum: This is a museum entirely dedicated to dance; it is really worth a visit, among the exhibits “The Dance Athlete” and “Dancers in film”. Admission is free every Tuesday.

Saratoga’s picturesque main street is ideally suited for walking, whether or not you have a destination in mind, it is very pleasant to let yourself wander around without a specific purpose in this street. Before you browse the Saratoga shops along Broadway, don’t hesitate to have a coffee in “Uncommon Grounds”, it’s a warm and relaxed coffee where you can roast the coffee beans made entirely homemade. Stop at Saratoga Olive Oil Co. to taste oils, salts and balsamic vinegars, all naturally flavored with figs, Tuscan herbs, and much more. Owners believe that each of their products has extraordinary health benefits. You will also find the labyrinthine bookstore “Lyrical Ballad Bookstore”. More than 100,000 volumes, often related to New York State and local history, are preserved there, if you venture far enough, you will discover a hidden banking vault.
