Explore the Beauty of Albany

It might seem obvious that the state capital of New York is New York. But as it turns out, it's not! Instead it's the small city of Albany, which has a population of less than 100,000 (that's about 8.3 million less than the Big Apple). Nevertheless, Albany is a charming place with more than a little cheeky pride that it managed to supersede the world's most famous city to be named the state capital.

To get a good view of the town, the Hudson River and the mountainous skyline try the observation deck at the Corning Tower, the highest building in Albany, in the Empire State Plaza on the 42nd floor. Photo ID is required of everyone 16 years and older.

Things to Do

Whilst you are visiting why not........

Take a tour of Albany, an historic city, on an amphibious vehicle, the Albany Aqua Duck then splash into the Hudson River.

On a clear day distant views of the Adirondacks and Green Mountains which circle the Albany basin can be seen from John Boyd Thacher State Park- good place for a walk around the top of the Escarpment.

Enjoy the Indian Ladder Trail for the more outward bound.
