"We had an absolutely fantastic time - a big thank you!" - Barbara Jones
Brought my daughter in today to make a candle and support a local business for Small Business Saturday and had a great experience! Staff are friendly and attentive, we were offered bottle water and cupcake samples! It doesn't get much better than that! I initially was just going to watch my daughter but then decided to join the fun and made a beautiful Christmas tree candle! Thank you Candle Collective! We will be back! -Megan Parker

Plan the Perfect Day Trip to Ballston Spa

Warmer weather is here, and it’s time to get out and enjoy it. What better way to do so than a day trip to the Village of Ballston Spa!

After some consideration of the many incredible things Ballston Spa has to offer, we’ve compiled a sample itinerary for your day in the Village of Friends:

1. Easy Morning

Start your morning browsing downtown Ballston Spa. Relax in beautiful Wiswall Park, visit the many locally owned shops, go antiquing, or take in history at Brookside Museum and the National Bottle Museum.

2. Grab a Bite

Next, stop in to The Factory Eatery & Spirits at 20 Prospect Street to grab lunch. Located in the historic chocolate factory, built in the late 1800s, this popular local restaurant combines the charm of the past with the taste of today.
