Malta is a very close community with many unique people. I find it very safe living in the community. The school of Ballston Spa which is where most of the kids in the community is a great school with many options to get involved in different programs, advanced classes, and many different clubs and activities. I would love it if the town could get more restaurants and entertainment closer to town. There has been a lot of new development but not a lot in those two areas, it would make Malta much more attractive destination if the town could add some new attractive spots in town.

If you drive, this place is good for you. This town is more of a quiet place, and many places are separated. Its mostly full of residential complexes, but it has its few areas of shopping centers and things to do. This town is right by Saratoga, which has alot of things to do.
I have recently moved to Malta New York from another local town and I love it! It it beautiful and is a developing area that continually surprises me with new businesses opening and fun places to check out with friends. Only critique would be the public schools are not the best.
