You’ve heard all about Saratoga’s springs and fountains offering up healthful mineral water. So…where are they? Find out by participating in this guided motor coach tour. Saratoga Springs was made famous in the 1800’s by the great number of mineral springs found in the city. Many of our springs are the most highly mineralized and highly carbonated, cold water mineral springs in the world. Saratoga Springs was the number one destination in the United States during the 19th century because people flocked to the city to drink and bath in the springs for their health.

Guides will educate participants about the geology, chemistry and health applications of each spring that they will visit.
