paulS2With its friendly people, thriving tourism, and one of the lowest county tax rates in the state, Saratoga County is an excellent place to live, work and visit.  We are proud of our strong commercial growth and a diverse local economy that ranges from Global Foundries, the largest high-tech economic development project in the country, to thriving family farms that are some of the best in Upstate New York.

Our cultural venues, excellent schools and colleges along with trails, parks and recreation programs make Saratoga County a great place to call home.
