Day Trips

The Capital Region's convenient location on I-87 and I-90 means there are plenty of places to visit should you wish to spend a day or two exploring other areas of Upstate New York. Some suggested day trips from Albany, NY include: Saratoga Springs - a charming and historic city that retains its sophistication while maintaining a casual allure that brings visitors year-round to fill the many restaurants, cafes, and night clubs the area offers; Lake George - a lively village set amid the beauty of the Adirondack Mountains; and Columbia County - historic communities and charming villages are set among an idyllic landscape that makes you feel apart of a Norman Rockwell painting. And, during winter, the question for visitors and residents is not where do I ski - but how far do I feel like driving today?

Government

The Capital District is an area rich in history that combines its notable roots with visionary thinking, empowered by hundreds of years as the governmental seat of New York.
