Albany, New York
About AlbanyRoughly two and a half hours away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, Albany has a plethora of places to explore, and you won’t have to jump out the way of a speeding taxi to get there. If your fear of heights is non-existent, it’s worth a shot heading over to the Hunter Mountain Ski Bowl to take part in a zip-lining adventure. If you’re a little hesitant, they even offer zip-lining at night. Maybe It’s better to see nothing but pitch-black as you zip across the mountains!
Can anything beat a cold brew on a hot day? Check out the City Beer Hall located in downtown Albany. There’s free parking (so bring your designated driver!), no cover, and free pizza. What could be better?
When you find some time to golf, head over to the Orchard Creek Golf Club. The course was voted the best course in the capital region’s “Best of the Best” by The Daily Gazette Readers Poll. With a great variety of hole lengths and apple trees scattered throughout the course, you can’t go wrong.
Playing at Capital Hills Golf Course in the fall is a great way to see the leaves changing colors all around you. Not only is the scenery top notch, but so are the course conditions. With affordable rates for residents starting at $22, this is a course that’s sure to be tested.
