Fun Stuff in Albany!

by Apryl Jacobs | Jun 12, 2013
Hi everyone!  Hope your semesters are all off to a great start :)  I just wanted to give you all a few ideas for fun stuff to do around Albany. Visit the NYS Museum! 


 The exhibits are really awesome, and its a great thing to do with your friends as an escape from studying! http://www.nysm.nysed.gov 

Go ice skating at the Empire State Plaza or Swinburne outdoor ice rinks!  Get a big group together, and bundle up! http://www.albany.com/whatsnew/2012/11/albany-skating-rink.html http://albanyny.gov/Government/Departments/Recreation/SwinburneSkatingRink.aspx 

Get frozen yogurt at TCBY! I’m sure you’ve spent your off-campus flex there before, but TCBY is doing a buy one get one 50% off for Valentine’s Day! http://store.tcby.com/home/guilderlandny 

Go see a show at Proctor’s Theatre!  You can check out the calendar on the site for upcoming productions. http://www.proctors.org 

See a concert, comedian, or sporting event at the Times Union Center!  Buy tickets to see Tiesto, Kenny Chesney, or Miranda Lambert this semester! http://www.timesunioncenter-albany.com/events

Or you can always visit Crossgates Mall or Colonie Center to get your mall fix or to see a movie! http://www.shopcrossgates.com http://www.shopatcoloniecenter.com

There are some other great events happening soon. Check out http://www.albany.com/events/ for more ideas. Study hard but remember to have some fun!  :) Apryl
