Adirondack Balloon Flights
Giving a new meaning for “bird’s eye view,” Adirondack Balloon Flights take guests on a ride over our scenic Adirondack countryside via hot air balloon. Take flight and look out over the historic towns and villages in the Lake George, Saratoga, Wilton and rural Washington County areas. This over-the-top romantic adventure is available May-October.
Revolutionary Rail Railbiking
Climb aboard the Revolutionary Rail Company Railbike! Leaving from the Northcreek Rail Station, this 2-hour self propelled rail bike allows you to explore the Adirondack Mountains and the Hudson River. A dreamy backdrop to this romantic excursion. Open from May-October.
For our folk music folks, Caffé Lena is an absolute must during your romantic getaway in upstate NY. It is the oldest continuously running folk music venue in the United States! Caffé Lena not only offers incredible entertainment, but also provides a warm, intimate, and historic atmosphere, perfect for a unique and memorable date night. Enjoy a concert and a cocktail (or two) with your favorite dance partner.
Think of the breathtaking beauty of Central Park, but on a smaller, more intimate scale. Take your lover’s hand, perhaps pack a picnic, and go for a stroll through nearby Congress Park. Enjoy the peaceful mineral springs, charming ponds with their brigade of ducks, and many grassy knolls inviting you to relax and live in the moment. Don’t miss the stunning marble statues throughout the park and the historic wooden carousel in the summer months.
Geyser Creek Trail
Sometimes all you need is fresh air and a good walking trail to ramp up the romance. Whatever the weather, a walk along the Geyser Creek Trail is always a good idea. Located in the Spa State Park, this hour long walk is filled with mineral springs, pathways and a spouting geyser, providing plenty of photo ops for you and your love.
Located on the grounds of the famous artist retreat, the Gardens of Yaddo is free to the public and open to explore all year round. However, if it’s romance you’re after, we highly recommend a stroll through the gardens’ stunning landscapes when the roses are in full bloom.
Located in downtown Saratoga, Complexions Spa is the perfect spot for a couples massage treatment. As your stresses melt away, you’ll grow closer as you spend quality time together in the relaxation lounge, steam room or sauna. You’ll leave feeling refreshed and romanced.
