I'm so happy you are visiting Albany County to experience its charm, charisma and beauty. Each season, Albany County exhibits new character by offering a wide range of activities to entertain families, singles, senior citizens and children. Simply, Albany County has something for everyone.


You will be mesmerized by our architecture and you must visit our extraordinary museums, theatres and restaurants. The city of Albany's business district and surrounding neighborhoods are rich with cultural heritage, while the suburbs offer historic houses and public spaces. Our hill towns showcase nature and agriculture at its finest.

As the capital of New York State, Albany is the hub of state government and offers magnificent sights including the Million Dollar Staircase at the State Capitol, the Empire State Plaza and the Egg.

Enjoy your visit and we hope to see you in Albany County again soon!

On behalf of the Albany County Convention & Visitors Bureau, we are delighted to welcome Ambit Energy to New York State's historical capital city.

This prestigious event will be held at the Empire State Plaza in downtown Albany, completed as a vision of Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller in 1978. The Plaza was built not only to serve as government offices, but as a center of arts, culture and community activity. The New York State Museum (the largest State Museum in the country), the Empire State Art Collection and the Empire State Performing Arts Center (known as The Egg for its unusual and distinctive design) are all contained at the Plaza. In addition, you will be able to visit the NYS Capitol as well as the Albany Institute of History & Art.
