Remember your visit with a treasure from one of Albany's many unique shops.

Walk along Lark Street (Albany's village-in-the-city) and notice the variety of shops, dining, and nightlife options. Or stroll Stuyvesant Plaza's unique collection of retailers, which includes national brands as well as local specialty shops. 

For indoor shopping, check out Crossgates Mall and Colonie Center, where you'll find designer and brand name labels at economical prices in hundreds of stores.

Searching for local trinkets and goods? Drop by the Fort Orange General Store, a neighborhood shop in downtown with beautiful, hand-picked home goods and gifts.
