With all of the exciting and entertaining places and events in the city, here’s another reason why Saratoga Springs is a can’t miss destination this summer. The Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) has just been awarded the best outdoor venue in the United States!

In a recent voting poll by USA Today, SPAC beat out the likes of Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, Nikon Theater in Jones Beach, and the Greek Theater in LA, to be named the number one outdoor venue in the nation. The competition included 20 different venues from across the United States that were handpicked by USA Today and voted on by concert-goers.

Set in the heart of Spa State Park, the 25,000-capacity venue is surrounded by beautiful hiking trails, geysers and natural mineral springs in Saratoga. Described by USA Today as a “cultural hub,” SPAC is certainly a venue that promotes diverse artistry, as the arts center hosts the New York City Ballet and Philadelphia Orchestra, as well as presenting top-notch chamber music, jazz, opera, rock and pop concerts.

Pavilion Grand Hotel, also located in the heart of Saratoga Springs, is destination to many concert and event goers looking for exceptional accommodations that are walking distance to most downtown Saratoga attractions. The experience of Saratoga Springs and all of its historic and cultural venues offer travelers one of the most unique experiences the country has to offer.

“Our guests enjoy a true experience like no other when they combine their stay at Pavilion Grand with a performance at Saratoga Performing Arts Center, “ said Susanne Simpson, General Manager of Pavilion Grand Hotel. “We are so proud to be part of such an exciting community and destination and commend SPAC on this impressive achievement.”

We congratulate SPAC on the award and look forward to welcoming many guests to Saratoga Springs and Pavilion Grand Hotel in the future!
