Saratoga Springs is approximately a three-hour drive to and from New York City to the south, Boston to the east and Montreal to the north. Since it lies directly on Interstate 87 (the Northway), automobile transportation is simple. Albany International Airport has direct flights from major hub cities including New York, Chicago, Washington and Atlanta. The 30-minute trip from the airport can be done by car rental, shuttle, limousine or bus. Finally, Amtrak has train service hourly from NYC to Albany and twice daily to Saratoga Springs. These trips offer scenic views of the Hudson River.
