    Driving in Albany

    Albany is home to several historic buildings, many of which have been preserved in their original glory. The grand building housing the City Hall is over 65 metres tall and was the most expensive government building of its time in the US. Free guided tours are available several times a day, so be sure to check it out. For those interested in unique architecture, check out "The Egg", located by the Empire State Plaza. The giant egg-shaped building is used as a venue for concerts and shows and looks more like a work of art than a building. To get a bird's eye view of the city, drive your hire car to the Corning Towers, where an observation deck on the 42nd floor gives panoramic views of Albany as well as the surrounding hills.

    For an insight into the history of the city, as well as the state, check out the New York State Museum, the largest of its kind in the US. The museum houses various displays relating to the history of the area, right back to prehistoric times and is free for visitors. Highly recommended for holidaymakers touring the area in a rental car is the John Boyd Thacher State Park. The park is abundant in wildlife, provides spectacular lookouts, and is only a half hour drive in your hire car. Be sure to check it out!
