An amazing Albany vacation starts with convenient flights and a hotel that’s practically begging you to put up your feet and savor the moment. Consider these guest favorites as you book your grand getaway.
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. After a busy day of sightseeing, explore downtown's Pearl Street entertainment district. You'll also find restaurants and clubs concentrated in the Madison Avenue, Lark Street, and Delaware Avenue areas.
In true New York fashion, local events tend to celebrate the state’s multi-cultural heritages. Albany's Dutch heritage is celebrated in May at the Tulip Festival, which woos visitors each spring with thousands of vibrant tulips blooming in historic Washington Park. The New York State Fourth of July Celebration at Empire State Plaza features the largest fireworks display in the region—a must-see for any Albany family vacation. A day in the life in Albany includes live music and a naturalization ceremony, where “huddled masses yearning to breathe free” are welcomed to their new home sweet home.
