Luckily there are plenty of things just a few hours outside of the Capital Region to do. Even if you’ve been to some of these places it is still fun to visit many of them again. For a full list put together by New York Upstate click the link below. Lets get started.

Day trip ideas in Upstate NY: 19 fun places to visit


Santa’s Workshop



Want some Christmas Cheer to lift you up? Only a little over two hours north of Albany. This is more of a summer destination seeing as it doesn’t open until June 28th but it still is something to keep in mind if your bored, especially if you have kids.


Fort Ticonderoga



Around an hour and a half away from Albany if you’ve never been maybe you should go. See what life was like 250 years ago.


Enchanted Forest



I remember as a kid never going here and always being mad about it. Even adults can have fun here though and it isn’t insanely far from the Capital Region.


Lake George



Need I describe, plenty to do around the Queen of American Lakes.


Howe Caverns



This is one I need to go to myself again. Haven’t been in about 15 or so years and would love to experience this as an adult. Very close to the Capital Region.





Even if you aren’t a baseball fan its still a good time going to the baseball hall of fame. I think everyone should go here at least once in their life.
