To celebrate CheapTickets 30th birthday the good people behind the website put together a fun list of 30 places they describe as "off-the-beaten path gems that could be the next big thing" and it just so happens that one of those places lies right here in the Capital Region! Below is what the website had to say about Sartoga Springs:

Located just north of Albany, this small town is named for its mineral springs, almost all of which are naturally carbonated and have made the town a favorite resort destination for over 200 years. Saratoga Springs is home to the Saratoga Race Course, where visitors can bet on the horses. If arts and culture is more your speed, then definitely visit the National Museum of Dance and Hall of Fame. During the summer, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center hosts the Philadelphia Orchestra and the New York City Ballet.

Not to mention all the AMAZING live concerts SPAC so graciously hosts for us throughout the year. Oh, and dough boys ... really they should be the main selling point.

Saratoga Springs wasn't the only NY destination to make the list, Woodstock NY also made an appearance on the list with the website stating:

Woodstock, home of the legendary 1969 Woodstock music festival, is considered one of the most famous small towns in America. Nestled in the heart of the Catskills, Woodstock is not only a living memorial to some of the greatest musicians of all time, but also a cultural mecca with hole-in-the-wall art galleries, antique stores, and book shops lining the appropriately named Tinker Street downtown. Then there’s Kaaterskill Falls, a two-drop waterfall and favorite subject of the Hudson River School painters, as well as the local swimming holes like Millstream and Fawn’s Leap. Before you leave don’t forget to take a photo with Grandfather Woodstock, a friendly hippie who came to Woodstock in 1969 and never left!
