New Broadway History Tour

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Last week, the city’s Heritage Area Visitor Center announced a new, 90-minute guided walking tour of downtown.

Two native Saratogians will host Discover Historic Broadway, and provide an immersive glimpse into the award-winning main street’s history. Guests will stroll through modern day shops, boutiques and galleries, and will wrap-up with a mineral water toast in Congress Park.

“The Visitor Center is excited to offer this nostalgic tour, celebrating the history of our beautiful main street. Tour guides Kathy Totten and Gel Hubbard offer a hometown perspective, walking guests through the years of Saratoga’s most beloved thoroughfare,” said Heather McElhiney, the Visitor Center director.

Discover Historic Broadway tours are to take place at 1:00 p.m. sharp on July 22, August 12 and 26. All tours meet at the Saratoga Heritage Area Visitor Center at 297 Broadway, rain or shine, and are $10 per person. Children under 12 can attend for free.

The historic Broadway tour is a part of the Saratoga Heritage Area Visitor Center Summer Walking Tour Season. Additional public tours include, History, Legends, Lore and More, which celebrates Saratoga’s Victorian era and runs through October 21.
