US News & World Report has just released its delightful list, 50 Beautiful Small Towns in America. Of course, Saratoga Springs is on that list–although, with a population of 30,000 and incorporation as a City–Saratoga Springs is hardly a “small town.” (By comparison: Sitka, Alaska, a delicious town also on the list, has a pop of about 7,000. We’re guessing that the researcher who compiled the list of 50 lives on 23rd Street in Manhattan–and so, a place with “only” 30,000 full-time residents may indeed seem to be “small.”)
By the same token, the photo in the article that represents Saratoga Springs is not of Broadway; the Race Course; North Broadway or the funky-cool West Side. Not even of our own glorious Union Avenue. No, it seems that the Editor gave the instructions, “Make it look like a Midwestern corn field. One house and a sunset.”
So we’ve provided here a few shots of the real life of our “small town,” and hope you’ll agree with us: that Saratoga Springs is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. (Hardly a place where tumbleweeds roll down the main drag.) We hope you’ll check us out and agree, also that our home, The Brunswick at Saratoga Bed & Breakfast is high on your personal list–verily, the first hostelry that comes to mind when you think of Our Fair City. Our single goal is nothing short of this: helping you feel that our inn–and our “small town” are your home(s), too.
