Ballston Spa Reviews

10 reviews
All Categories
Lovely town! All the store owners are happy to help. Medical practices are easy to find and book appointments. Close to other attractions like Saratoga Race Way, concerts, airport, and malls.
Review Ballston Spa
A cute town with lots of personality, Ballston Spa is home to many cafes, restaurants, and boutique shops. There is a chillingly fun haunted hay ride during Halloween season, and the folks here are great.
Small, suburban family town. Malta area, west of the Northway, growing on account of Global Foundaries -- new townhouse-style apartments, new restaurants (e.g. Panera).
