2019 Year In Review: Looking Back At The Top ‘saratoga living’ Features

What a year it’s been! In 2019, saratoga living set out to produce even more engaging and insightful magazine features than ever before. It required a lot of hard work (and late nights) from our small editorial staff—not to mention, major hustle from our trusted freelance writers and staff photographers. And I truly believe we pulled it off.

On the day all of those great magazine features finally saw the light of day, they were also concurrently published on saratogaliving.com. And even if you can’t find, say, our 2019 “I Do!” issue anywhere in the Capital Region right now (it was a popular one), you can still read the great features from it on our website. They’re not going anywhere.

So, for all of you saratoga living fanatics out there, here’s a roadmap to our 2019 year in features. Below, you’ll find each magazine heading and some of the most popular features from each of them. For everything else, visit saratogaliving.com early and often.
