Known as the capital city of New York State, an RV rental in Albany is a fantastic way to explore some of the beautiful sites that New York has to offer. Located in the Capital District, Albany is part of the Tri-City area of New York, which also includes the cities of Troy and Schenectady.
Although not one of the larger towns in the state, Albany is full of life. The minor league baseball team, the Valleycats, play here, the Capitol Building is unbelievable, the cheesecake is fantastic, and there is an abundance of historical landmarks around every corner. The choice is really yours when you visit Albany, but we’re here to help make that choice a little easier.
If you are a sports fan, a day at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium is the way to go. The ValleyCats are a fan favorite around the Tri-City area, which makes for an even more enjoyable time with friends and family. If you’d rather go to one of the larger ballparks (Yankee Stadium or Citi Field) you’ll have to do a little bit of driving. That said, it may be worth the drive if you’re a fan of the Yankees or Mets.
One major attraction you’ll want to add to your list, a trip to the Capitol Building. There are 98 acres of land that include both the Capitol and State Museum. While in town, you do have the option of booking a tour, and trust us, this one will NOT put you to sleep!
When it comes to cheesecake, Albany is often considered Heaven. Cheesecake Machismo is one of the most incredible spots in the United States to get a slice of cheesecake, per several voting polls and surveys. If you’re a fan of this delicious desert and want to see what it tastes like in Albany, make your way over the Machismo’s.
Aside from these few topics, there is also an abundance of history that makes up this town. The story of Abraham Lincoln, his speech, and his assasination can be learned here. As one of the Nation’s most memorable historical events, you can be sure that the time spent here is going to be full of insights around what happened during that time.
Albany is close to other major cities as well, so you may want to consider taking your RV to a few other cities while visiting. Contact us today to book your RV rental in Albany!
