Stay in Gloversville When Attending the Saratoga Belmont on June 8

Saratoga Springs is getting ready for the Belmont Stakes which they are hosting this year at their NYRA racecourse on June 8. With a short drive away, Gloversville is the perfect place to rest when coming to the area for the horse racing event. And, of course, a wonderful place to explore before and after the race.


Think of Gloversville as the hub in a wagon wheel, with the spokes or roads allowing travelers to easily hit big destinations. Going to SPAC or NYRA racecourse? Take Route 29 for an easy and straight shot into Saratoga, less than an hour away. Heading to the Adirondacks? Gloversville is the gateway to the mountains, with Kane Mountain less than 20 minutes away via Route 29A and the beginning of the Northville-Placid Trail an estimated 15 minutes away. 

Within the Gloversville city limits, there are nearly 20 locations on the map and boasts of nearly a dozen. Many travelers have stayed here.


Airbnb reviewer Carl wrote this about an apartment on the site, located in the Downtown Core: “This was a cozy little place to stay in a cute little town near Adirondack State Park. I would definitely stay here again. Very conveniently located and comfortable.” Jared wrote, “Great place to spend the night before checking out the nearby Adirondack Park.” 

June 8th is filled with a variety of musical selections for those who want a different pace after visiting the fast and exciting Belmont Stakes. Capital Regional Music Hall of Fame inductee Marty Wendell will perform on June 8 at 7 p.m. at Dorn Space.
