Trip Report Upstate NY trip report

Jump to last reply

Back from a trip to upstate NY. My first time in Albany, Saratoga, New Paltz.
We also took a cruise ship on Lake George.

Albany - fun to see it after seeing it on TV 30+ years of living in NY. Nice architecture. 2 wedding photo shoots took place... even in the cold! Pretty impressed, and do recommend it, but not in the cold.
Saratoga - interesting, but not a must see.
New Paltz - I say skip it, not much to see.

Lake George cruise - a tough call. The Fall foliage is peaking, but it was the last cruise of the season. Thus, if you want Fall foliage from the lake, rent a boat. But, the cruise was 2 hours of people shoving in a tight space, not much to eat, and small bathrooms. I say for the price, noise level, wind, cold, bad food, and not much to see skip it.
