It's less than an hour away, but a weekend or day in Saratoga feels so far removed. This idyllic Northern California town - with its laid-back yet chic main street - is nestled at the edge of the Santa Cruz Mountains, amid oak and redwood trees, gorgeous estates, expansive vineyards and rolling hills.

You can head up for dinner and an evening concert in one of the most magical music venues in the country. Or make a weekend of it with horseback riding, Japanese gardens, art and more. Here are our favorite things to do in this Silicon Valley gem.
