2017 Guide features Erie Canal, Albany Capital Center, and Wolf Road


Albany, NY - The Albany County Convention & Visitors Bureau has begun production on the 2017 Albany Visitors Guide, the official destination guide for Albany County. This full-color, glossy, magazine-style publication has information about where to eat, what to do, and where to stay while visiting Albany.

Along with important information for travelers, the 2017 Albany Visitors Guide will also highlight the opening of the Albany Capital Center in March 2017, the Erie Canal Bicentennial and one of Albany's busiest commercial hubs, Wolf Road. Each year, thousands of visitors come to Albany County and these special features celebrate this destination and all its unique experiences.

The Albany Visitors Guide is more than the official destination guide - it is the first line of a conversation we have with visitors. This year, we will publish and distribute 100,000 visitor guides. In addition to mailing Visitors Guides directly to consumers, we also distribute guides at travel hubs, at local referrers, and to conference attendees.
