Dan McCoy


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!
