Weekend Getaways: Albany, NY

I’m feeling so happy after this fun filled weekend! I took a trip with my boyfriend to visit his older brother and some friends who live in upstate. Upstate New York is the perfect place to spend an October weekend because fall is in full bloom there. Just about every tree was bright yellow, orange or red, I seriously couldn’t have made it more scenic if I tried! I’m starting to truly appreciate all the lovely little things that autumn has to offer.

One thing I truly love about Albany are all of the historic townhouses. They fill the entire city and give it a little bit of added charm.

If you get the chance to take a trip, one spot I’d definitely recommend walking through is Washington Square Park. Especially during this time of the year it’s really gorgeous for an afternoon stroll. (I mean come on, look at that fall foliage!)

Another place I’d absolutely recommend you stop by is Nine Pin Cider Works. If you love hard cider as much as I do, you’re going to love this place. They have a tasting room where you can try some of their best ciders, (and some local beers as well for those of you who don’t like cider.)

Just a short walk down the street is another fun stop. Wolff’s Biergarten is an awesome place to grab a few drinks with some friends and catch up. One thing I still can’t get over was that they have baskets of shelled peanuts that they give you to snack on while hanging out with your friends. The best part about this is you just throw the empty shells on the floor! I mean c’mon, it doesn’t get more casual or laid back than that!

I truly do love these fall filled weekends!
