Getting to the AVA

The Albany Visitors Association is located at 110 3rd Ave. S.E., Albany, Oregon. We’re on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Lyon Street in historic downtown Albany.

By car:

From Interstate 5, take exit No. 233 or 234A/234B. Head west, following the signs for Downtown/City Center/Corvallis. Take the Hwy 20/Lyon St. exit toward downtown Albany. From the base of the overpass, continue on Hwy 20/Lyon St. approximately five blocks to the intersection of 3rd and Lyon. The Albany Visitors Association will be on your right. You can park on the street or in the parking lot behind our building. The building is staffed on weekdays year-round and on Saturdays in the summer. Free visitor guides and information are available 24 hours a day in the covered area at the Visitors Association entrance.

By train or bus:

The Albany Station is located at 110 10th Avenue SW and serves as a regional hub for train and bus service. Amtrak Cascades, Bolt Bus, the City of Albany Public Transit Service, the Linn-Benton Loop Service, local taxi companies, and other public transit providers all stop here. When you arrive at the Albany Station, walk straight down Lyon Street seven blocks to the Albany Visitors Association on the corner of Third and Lyon.

By water:

Paddling up the Willamette? Pull your canoe or kayak ashore at Bryant Park. From the entrance to Bryant Park, follow 3rd Avenue half a mile to the Albany Visitors Association at Third and Lyon.

By air:

Albany is home to the oldest known airfield in Oregon, the Albany Municipal Airport (FAA Location ID S12), which has been in operation since 1920. If you’re a general aviation pilot, you can land your small aircraft here. It’s just over three miles from the Airport to the Albany Visitors Association. A local taxi service can transport you, or  you can catch a city bus at the nearby Linn County Expo Center.
