Day 1: Depart aboard our deluxe motor coach for historic Saratoga Springs. We will visit Lake George Village with time for lunch and shopping before our visit to the Haven Oaks Farm. Here we will learn what it takes to raise and race thoroughbred horses. See these beautiful animals up close and personal. We will have overnight accommodations at the historic Gideon Putnam Hotel, the only hotel located in Saratoga Spa State Park. The Gideon Putname takes a proud place on the national registry of Historic Hotels in America. Enjoy a buffet dinner and try your hand at lady luck as you name your game and play to win at the Saratoga Casino and Raceway. 

Day 2: Following breakfast, we join our Victorian costumed guide for our guided city tour of Saratoga Springs. Our guide will highlight the famous sites of the Saratoga Race Track, Oklahoma Exericise Track, Skidmore College, Yaddo Gardens and more. Learn the history of these sites and of the "Great Ladies" (the original name for Victorian houses) and the families that built them. There will be time to explore downtown Saraoga for lunch before we tour Batcheller Mansion, located in historic Congress Park. This magnificent upscale inn represents old world sophisticated elegance with a new world attitude. Experience what it was like to live in the Victorian house that The New York Times have called "Saratoga's Crowning Glory." We then head for home with memories of our historic stay in Sararoga Springs. Trip includes deluxe motor coach transportation, tour escort, one night hotel stay, one breakfast, one dinner, sightseeing and admissions.
