A mere four-hour drive from the bustling streets of Manhattan rests an idyllic city known as Saratoga Springs. Too often, the gems of upstate New York can fall in the shadows of New York City, but to miss out on Saratoga Springs would be a mistake.
Known as a hub for horse racing, parks, art, nightlife, and cuisine, Saratoga Springs is as lively as it is beautiful. From horse racing to philanthropy, tourism to food, women have made (and continue to make) a huge impact on this upstate New York getaway. Whether it’s the executive chefs behind some of the city’s more notable eateries or the female management of the historic Adelphi Hotel, this feminist city guide seeks to celebrate the women of Saratoga Springs.
