People who live in Burnt Hills probably love the area in which they live more than anybody else in the capital district. While the schools are fantastic and the area itself is very nice, it probably doesn’t hurt that Burnt Hills is situated in between some very active communities, such as Clifton Park and Saratoga. This keeps things fun and fresh for the people who live here, but also allows them to escape some of the business that these places can attract.
