 DID YOU KNOW?  The classic beauty of the Victoria Pool in the Saratoga Spa State Park is timeless.  Built during the Depression as part of the Saratoga Reservation, the pool opened in 1935 as part of the hydrotherapy program at the Spa and was the first heated pool in the country.  It's unheated now, but forever cool.

"It was a lovely and gracious resort and I wished that I had more time there. It was very convenient to the town of Saratoga Springs and the Victorian street festival was a bonus. I live in an area that has mostly national retailers and it was refreshing to be able to shop in so many unique local retailers."  ”
