With the Adirondacks to the north, the Berkshires to the east, the Catskills to the south, and the Finger Lakes to the west, there is much to enjoy about this region of New York. Its centralized location is also very appealing; this includes not only NYC but also Philadelphia, Boston, and Montreal all within a 3-hour drive. Less than an hour away is the allure of Saratoga Springs, a city famous for its culture, restaurants, horse racing, and its performing arts center. Locals enjoy the culture of Saratoga but also love driving just 20 minutes north of Saratoga for the beauty of Lake George: the scenery, tourism, boating, and hiking of Lake George make it one of New York’s premier vacation destinations.
