We are fortunate to live in a region so full of things to do and see!!
The Village of Schuylerville is a good place to start and especially if you would like to stretch your legs and walk a bit. Your necessities are all here, whether they be groceries, restaurants, lodging, hardware and more. We could also be your base of operations for a few days or more.
We are proud of our local history as well. Check our PDFs entitled “Village of Schuylerville Map”, “Old Saratoga Area Attractions”, and “Schuyler’s Canal Park”.
At Schuyler’s Canal Park you can walk the Trail between The Schuyler House and Champlain Canal Lock 5 along the Old Tow Path of the 1800’s Champlain Canal and continue to Hudson Crossing Park. This park has award winning trails and great recreational and educational activities for the whole family. Find them at www.hudsoncrossingpark.org.
Also check the Lakes To Locks Passage website at www.lakestolocks.org. This is a National Geographic Geo-Tourism Byway Corridor that spans the waterways between Troy NY and Rouses Point at the Canadian border. See some of the incredible projects and initiatives that LOL has to offer.
The National Park Service has a huge presence here in Schuylerville as they operate and maintain The Saratoga Monument, The General Schuyler House and Victory Woods. Six miles down NYS Rt 4 (our main street) is the Saratoga National Historical Park and Battlefield and find them at www.nps.gov/sara.
