Albany Kid And Things To Do In Albany NY

Have You Ever Wondered What There Is To Do In Albany NY and the surrounding Capital Region?

I’ve been asking, and answering, that question ever since I moved to the Capital Region in 1998. Albany Kid started out as a family travel blog in 2007 when I was a stay-at-home mom eager to enrich my children’s lives. I was also a Girl Scout leader and Cub Scout co-leader, so I was also trying to find interesting things to do for our field trips in the Capital Region.

My son and daughter are grown up now, and I’ve been busy developing my travel photography and writing about romantic getaways on

But then, just when I thought about closing the door on Albany Kid, I received an invitation to write a new book on 100 Things To Do In Albany Before You Die. Suddenly, I have a great reason to revisit all the old haunts and to find out what’s new in the Capital Region. I might even give up my wandering ways and stay home for a while. Stay tuned!
