If you’re flying in, plan to arrive at Albany International Airport, which is about 30 miles south of the Saratoga. From there you can rent a car or hop on the bus, unless you have pre-arranged transportation through your hotel.

To arrive by train, Amtrak’s Adirondack line travels back and forth to Saratoga from New York City, Montreal and Burlington.

Bus travel is also convenient, with Greyhound arriving every few hours from Albany and Montreal. The bus station is located at the Spa City Diner on South Broadway.

Drivers from can take I-87 (NYS Thurway), which is called the Northway once you get north of Albany. There are three exits for Saratoga: use exit 13-S for Saratoga Lake, exit 13-N for SPAC, and exit 14 for the racetrack and downtown. Continue on to exit 15 if you’re headed to the shopping malls.
