I’m so glad you’re reading this, it means you are somehow connected to my new home, Saratoga Springs, NY!!
“Saratoga Springs…what a beautiful area!” That’s what everyone told me when I said we were moving to Saratoga Springs. And that was pretty much all the information they had to offer. So, on my own, with my hubby and 2 kids, I have been working on figuring out the Saratoga Springs area.
In September 2014 we uprooted our family of 4 and moved across the state from Rochester NY to Saratoga Springs NY.
We knew absolutely no one in the area, so I searched google for any information I could find about the area. I came across a few websites with information helpful to me, but that was it. We had to completely start over, from finding a pediatrician to a grocery store. I was able to find many tourist sites about Saratoga Springs but what about all these people living in Saratoga everyday?
What kinds of things do “the locals” know that I need to know? And where do I learn how to be “a local”?
I searched desperately to find information about parking in downtown Saratoga, doctors, dentists, gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, oil change places, garbage companies, car parts stores…the list went on and on.
I wished there was a web site that talked about living in Saratoga Springs, not just about visiting or the track season.
So, here I am. I think I have a better handle on living here, but there are still many things I know nothing about. I hope that as I learn more about living in Saratoga Springs, sharing it will help other people not have the unknown that I had.
So let me ask the embarrassing questions. I’ll be the moron that does it all wrong. I’ll figure it out the hard way. All for you!!
Thanks for reading! I hope it helps! :o)
