Ballston Spa: A Perfect Saratoga Day Trip

Ballston Spa is a quaint, historic Village just under 20 minutes from Saratoga Springs and about half an hour from Albany. The area provides a quiet respite from the busier destinations in the area like downtown Saratoga and Lake George.

Ballston Spa sign

The Village offers top dining spots like Next Door Kitchen & Bar, known for locally sourced food in a rustic environment, and a variety of boutique and antique shops. A walk through downtown Ballston Spa shows how different generations of the Village have come together to revitalize the town. The shops are a mix of trends of today with stores that have been around for years.

History buffs will love the Brookside Museum, a historic house built in 1792, and the National Bottle Museum, where you can view thousands of glass bottles as you learn about the history of the industry.

Ballston Spa is also known for its special annual events, like the Ballston Spa Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting, the Ballston Spa Witch Walk, and the many events that take place at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds.
