One way or another, Saratoga Springs has become a city where you can take your dog shopping in local boutiques, where water fountains flow with fresh, un-bottled Geyser Spring Water, and where you can enjoy a funky nightlife in a downtown so simultaneously clean, quaint, cute, and strange it could have been designed by a bastard child of Timothy Leary and Martha Stewart. In this artistic environment, 60 Pulitzer Prize winning authors and one Nobel Prize winner have thrived as Saratogians, people such as Bob Dylan and Arlo Guthrie have rolled through town on their way to fame, and today a whole new generation of geniuses, artists, musicians, and other brilliant Saratogians have got their mojo working.
Apartments for rent in Saratoga Springs range from $600 studio apartments to $1,000 penthouse lofts, to ritzy condos and upscale apartments that can cost more than $3,000 a month. Of course, when you pay this much, you don't just get an apartment on the second floor... you get an apartment rental that is the second floor, all 2,000 square feet of it. So, you can see that rental properties come in all shapes and sizes and prices, and that's a lot to consider.
What’s even more difficult, however, is choosing between all the amazing neighborhoods in this little city. You can live by the lake, by the amazing Spa State Park, in one of the artist communities (as long as you're artistically inclined), in the popular downtown neighborhood, next door to the racetrack, or far from the beautiful Saratogian freaks in a quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood near the golf course.
As mentioned earlier, Saratogians have created a very dog friendly place to live. The dog friendly downtown is full of dozens of businesses sporting the dog-friendly decal, a sign that designates which shops, eateries, boutiques, galleries, bars, and businesses allow local canine residents in their doors as equal members of Saratogian society. There is even a "yappy" hour at various watering holes in the downtown area. In a town like this, you’re sure to come across plenty of pet friendly pads.
Just grazing the surface now, but alas, it's time for this guide to end. Good luck on your apartment hunt in the beautiful Saratoga Springs!
