A new way to plan your visit

Like most of us, you’re probably using your mobile device to find important travel information when you’re away from home, such as the best hotel deals in town.

Thanks to Hospitality Vision’s team, the app will help you discover the best places in Albany to stay, eat, drink, and have a great time. New interactive maps will show you where the historic homes and covered bridges are located, so that you can plan your vacation.

Apple iOs: Download the free app at the Apple Store for iPhone or iPad

Android OS: Download the free app at Google Play for Android.

Join the fun—submit selfies and share your photos and videos. We’ll be watching for them, so go be an “Albany Explorer!”
