Albany Travel Guide: 109 reviews and 139 photos

I spent the first 11 years of my life in a suburb of Albany, Schenectady. As a result I was able to visit this wonderful city quite often as a child. I have forgotten a lot of places we used to go to and things we've done, but deep down inside I still feel at home when ever I am here.

SES and I made this our last stop on a four state trip back in July of 2006. We had planned to go to a couple of pubs when we were here, but found all three closed even though I Dines had them as being open. We finally found a cute sports bar to stop at then went back for a good night sleep at our usual hotel when we would venture here.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:City is filled with historical significance.
  • Cons:Dead on the weekends.

    Hi Patrica, Nice page, we have an Albany in Western Australia, a beautiful place to visit and a harbour to rival Sydney Harbour.

    You weren't kidding when you said you liked churches. I am looking forward to taking the kids to the museums soon, you'll have more stuff to write about.

    Unfortunately I didn't make it to Albany during my visit to Upstate New York. Looks like I missed an interesting city. Thanks for checking out my New York State page.

    I like tandoori too :) The Empire State Plaza is amazing isn't it. Walking around the pools, surrounded by majestic buildings. Cheers, SL
