Nestled along the Mohawk River, Schenectady was once known as the city that “lights and hauls the world,” a characterization stemming from it being the home for both General Electric and the American Locomotive Company. Though both industrial giants have less impact on the local economy today, Schenectady has reinvented itself in recent years.
Now a days in Schenectady you are able to catch a Broadway show at Proctors, visit Mohawk Harbor featuring Rivers Casino & Resort, restaurants, and an outdoor amphitheater that hosts many events and free concerts throughout the year!
But wait, it doesn't stop there! Schenectady County offers the perfect backdrop for our county's history. Our partners at the Schenectady Historical Society share our stories and help our guests to understand our roots and revitalization.
And there's beer! Schenectady County has an established Ale Trail featuring the Schenectady County breweries. Our Ale Trail is the prefect way to spend a couple of days with us!
Schenectady County is located in Upstate New York, 3.5 hours north of New York City, just over an hour to Cooperstown, NY (Baseball Hall of Fame), and 20 miles west of the state capitol in Albany making Schenectady County the perfect hub & spoke destination for your next tour!
Check out all that we have to offer! We look forward to seeing you soon!
