YOUR GUIDE TO THINGS TO DO IN AND AROUND THE CAPITAL REGION
There are many things to do in and around Albany. Here's your guide to what's happening, from food to attractions to concerts and events in the city and the greater Capital Region. We'll have the latest updates on the capital city's activities, from family fare to nightlife. Plus, our anchors and reporters give you their recommendations for the best that Albany has to offer.
Maybe you want to keep it simple and stick to Pearl Street or the Times Union Center. Maybe you're looking for something a little more off the radar. From downtown and the Warehouse District; to Central Avenue, up Washington Avenue to UAlbany; New Scotland Avenue's emerging restaurant scene and beyond, Albany has plenty of options and events throughout the year.
Capital Region Food
Longtime NYC Mayor Ed Koch once called Albany "a city without a good Chinese restaurant." We'd disagree with Hizzoner, because we know that from kitchen to kitchen, Albany and the Capital Region have a plate of food for every taste.
Capital Region in Concert
"I love Baby Animal Days at Indian Ladder Farms in Voorheesville. I take the family and we actually help feed and care for them. They are so cute and the animals just want love and hugs. Nothing makes you smile and get ready for spring like these little babies!” - Julie Chapman
"I love the theater and the arts. I always have. Every year, I look forward to the lineup at Proctors in Schenectady. This spring, I’m anxious to see 'Cats' and the Donna Summer musical. Over at Capital Rep in Albany, 'A Streetcar Named Desire' looks pretty good, too." - Dan Bazile
