Day Trips > Ballston Spa
A beautiful, quaint historic village just 3 miles south of Saratoga Springs. It's convenient location just 1/2 hour north of Albany and five minutes from Saratoga Springs makes it a destination for travelers to the area.
The village hosts many special events and offers a quiet respite from the busier destinations like Lake George or downtown Saratoga.
A walk through downtown Ballston Spa shows how different generations of the village have come together to revitalize the town. The storefronts on the main street show a nice mix of shops that offer the latest trends of today with shops that have been around for years. There are a number of new restaurants in town, offering everything from fine dining to take out pizza to go along with some of the favorites locals have been visiting for years.
For the history lover, there's a Veterans' Memorial, classic Victorian homes and even the National Bottle Museum in Ballston Spa.
