During World War II 563 Destroyer Escorts battled Nazi U-Boats on the North Atlantic protecting convoys of men and supplies. In the Pacific, they stood first in line to defend naval task forces from Kamikaze attacks. Today only one remains afloat in America. Step back in time. Return to 1945 aboard USS SLATER. See how Sailors worked, hear the sounds of a living ship, touch a piece of American history, and walk the decks where hundreds of Sailors have walked before.
If you love military history or naval history this is your jam. Beautiful ship with tons of character.Check er out!

Park across the street in the small parking lot and then follow the bridge over the sluiceway to the little park. From there you get a fantastic view of the Cohoes Falls. At sunset the falls get lit up nicely for photography.

The Albany Rural Cemetery is a great place to wander. The old trees shade ornate tombs that are up to a few hundred years old. The roads wind all over the place and there are many famous people buried here, including President Chester A. Arthur! The Albany Rural Cemetery is a hidden gem, for sure! but it is quite hilly.

The New York State Capitol has served as the seat of government for New York since the 1880's. Over 125 years old, the building is a marvel of late 19th-century architectural grandeur. Built by hand of solid masonry, it took 5 architects and 32 years to complete. Over the years meticulous restoration has been done to maintain and protect the Capitol for future generations of New Yorkers.
We went to the New York State Capitol for an advocacy event. The building was beautiful with its detailed architecture and stunning columns. A must is observing the Senate floor from the viewing gallery. Make sure that you have good walking shoes!

I only discovered the Curtain Call Theater this year, and am so glad I did. I have now seen three productions and each was unique with superb acting, wonderful sets, lighting and costumes, and great direction. I am amazed that there is so much acting talent in this area.

There's something to be said about attending a baseball game... it just screams 'summertime'. I've made one of my 'bucket list' items is to visit every major league Baseball Stadium, however all that being said.... Minor League fields are really where it's at!!! We've been to several for two reasons, the first is because unlike most major league parks they are extremely affordable, which makes it easy for a family to attend. The second is they are all so fan orientated . Since my daughter had attended college in the Albany area and subsequently moved to this area, we have always said that we had to make a baseball game at Joe Bruno. We finally made it several years later and I can honestly say this will not be our last visit.
The stadium is the home for the single A team of the Houston Astro's. We went on Labor Day Weekend which made the visit more poignant given the past tragedy of Harvey and Houston. The Stadium screams fan friendly; from the minute you enter you feel welcomed. The field is immaculate, the food selections are numerous and every seat seems to give you a great view of the field. I can assure you that we will absolutely be back.
Only suggestion to the event staff management...you might want to rethink the 'Diamond Dig' concept Ha ha...

Serving the Capital Region for over 26 years!! Offering a fleet of Sedans, Vans, 6, 8 & 10 passenger Lincoln limousines, 14, 18 & 20 passenger Cadillac Escalade/Hummer H2 limousines, and 24 to 30 passenger Executive & Luxury Buses!
After a devastatingly bad experience with a local travel agency, both with the cruise they booked and botched up, to d their "provided" transportation to and from their location which was another disaster, last year we booked our cruise directly with the cruiseline and arranged for transportation with Today's Limousine. I can't praise this limousine service better....even though we were late for our pick-up, they waited patiently and kept in contact with us as we barreled down the Northway to meet the vehicle in time for the drive to NYC. On both trips, back and forth, we were treated with courtesy and pampering. We'd never go another way again....Today's Limousine is the best.

Visited the Cohoes Music Hall for the first time this week. Easy access to parking across Remsen St. While there is sidewalk construction on going the entrance to the Hall was not difficult. Upon entry, you can either choose to use the stairs [3 flights] or the elevator. For this play there was open seating; we chose one of the curved rows of pew type seating. There appeared to be a good view of the stage from any of the seating choices.
