Albany Guide

Know Before You Go

  • If you want to learn about Albany's history and architecture, go on a walking tour. For budget travellers, you can download a self-guided tour for free, or you can pay USD 15 to join a group tour.
  • Go to the Capital Region if you want to browse the city's many farmer's markets. It's cheaper than eating out every night and healthier with fresh produce on sale every day.
  • If you want to escape the city for the day, head to the Hudson River, Mohawk River or the Erie Canal Locks. You can spend the day kayaking, tubing, rowing, canoeing or cruising down the river on a party boat.
  • Winter time in Albany is anything but boring. Choose from ice skating at the Empire Skate Plaza, ice hockey, snow tubing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and more.
  • Head to the city in spring for Albany's annual Tulip Festival. With over 211,000 tulips, food stalls and much more it's a unique cultural experience to have in Albany.

Getting Around Albany

  • Compared to other destinations in the United States, traffic is light and traffic jams are rare in the city. While finding parking can be a challenge in some neighbourhoods, cars are the preferred method of getting around.
  • Taxis in Albany are not metered; instead, they use a zone fare within the city limits. This can leave you open to getting ripped off if you don't call the cab company beforehand to find out the cost. For a cheaper option, you can download the ridesharing app Lyft to get around the city as well.
  • To get to the many sights inside and outside of Albany, you can use the public bus system. Tickets cost USD 1.50 for a one-way trip or USD 4 for the whole day. Buses operate daily from 6am to 12 pm every 20 to 30 minutes with routes on the weekend limited.

Best time to visit Albany

When is The Best Time to Visit Albany?

June to August is peak season in Albany as the summer weather attracts tourists from near and far. Expect long lines at major attractions, sold-out events and higher hotel prices.

Another popular time to visit Albany is during the fall. From September to November, the summer weather lingers as the cooler temperatures start to descend on the city. The beautiful fall foliage is another major draw card from mid-October.

If you want to avoid the crowds during this time, plan your holiday around Columbus Day weekend. Or if you can't avoid it, book your accommodation a month in advance to lock in prices before the price hike.

Albany's winter months see a slump in tourism, but it's high season for the nearby ski destinations. Temperatures range from -9°C to 4°C and snowstorms can close down airports and the Thruway.

From March to May the spring thaw begins in Albany. It's not uncommon for snow to still fall during this time, so pack some warm layers and rainproof clothing for exploring the city. But if you don't mind the less than perfect weather, you'll be rewarded with cheaper hotel rates and the city's outdoor activities without the summer crowds.
