Upstate NY is one of the most beautiful areas I've lived in. This particular area in Saratoga County is so friendly and welcoming. The town we live in has signs as you enter town claiming to be "Ballston Spa...a village of friends" and it is! We live in a country atmosphere but with grocery, retail and restaurants within a reasonable distance.
Saratoga Springs is 15 minutes away and features the Saratoga Racetrack, SPAC, amazing restaurants and numerous lakes and historic sites to visit...I love it here!!
Would I do it all over? Move here again? Absolutely, but I can't imagine leaving to begin with!
