Join Hudson River's namesake on an adventure through Albany with this fun itinerary! See the Hudson River through the eyes of the famous explorer Henry Hudson but taking a festive Dutch Apple Cruise. Next, hit the New York State Museum to learn about the foundation of Albany and the Dutch History it has, all thanks to Hudson. Next, stop by the USS Slater and learn about its role in World War II, which would definitely have impressed and intrigued Hudson had he been alive to see it.

Finally, check out the 8 foot tall replica of Hudson's vessel on top of the SUNY Administration Building to complete your day and round out your knowledge of the discovery of what would eventually become Albany, NY.
