Major Attractions

While you're on vacation in Albany, tour the palace-like state capitol building and the surrounding grounds graced with ponds and flower gardens. The opulent Gilded Age architecture is the perfect backdrop for the numerous paintings on display. The Erastus Corning Tower stands nearby, and it’s the tallest building in the state outside of New York City. You don’t have to walk far down the streets of Albany to step through several decades. For example, you can tour the USS Slater downtown, still afloat since WWII, or wander among centuries of estates in Cherry Hill.

Although it may look like an elegant deviled delight, The Egg is a hub of culture and the arts in Albany, and its highly unusual architecture only adds to the experience of attending a play or concert.

You'll also find restaurants and clubs concentrated in the Madison Avenue, Lark Street, and Delaware Avenue areas.
