Perfect place to grow up and raise a family. Friendly, safe, award-winning schools, great people. Neighbors are welcoming and caring. They feel like family. Close to Albany, Saratoga and Lake George but plenty of wide open spaces and nature

It's very small and rural, but that makes it cute. There's lots of farms, open fields, and beautiful landscapes. The demographic is also largely middle class, so it is a nice place to live. The main downside is that there are almost no places to shop, eat, or do much at all.
great small town feel, but good sized population, great education offered, good sport schools, suburbs but close enough to restaurants, concert halls, and other attractions
