Discover Albany has lead the charge in New York State Capital Region Tourism since 1976. They are passionate discoverers, and are eager to help you learn about all the wonderful things going on in Albany County. The Discover Albany staff has been assisting visitors and meeting specialists for more than 30 years, acting as a community concierge to attract tourists and assure successful meetings, conventions, and events held in Albany.



The staff at Discover Albany works with its Board of Directors, members, volunteers, and other hospitality organizations to contribute to the ever-expanding hospitality industry in the Capital Region and beyond. Discover Albany also operates the Discover Albany Visitors Center, which is located at historic Quackenbush Square (corner of Clinton Avenue and Broadway in downtown Albany) and the Information Desk at the Albany International Airport.
