This summer's AOA tour -- Rail, River, Hudson -- is this Saturday, July 12. There were (literally) a boatload of tickets for the day trip and they're now sold out. But you still have a chance to go, because we're giving away a pair of tickets.
To enter, please answer this question in the comments:
What's your favorite summer day trip, and why?
It could be a day at one of the many state parks in the region, visits to museums, a particular town where you like to hang out, whatever. We'll draw one answer at random. That person gets the pair of tickets.
The Rail, River, Hudson day trip starts in downtown Albany where we'll meet up at the Broadway side of the foot bridge that connects with the Corning Preserve. We'll then take CDTA shuttle buses over to the Albany-Rensselaer train station and hop a train for Hudson. You'll have the afternoon to explore Hudson, including an opportunity to tour Etsy's fun offices in a former cannonball factory. At the end of the afternoon, we'll head back to the waterfront to catch the Dutch Apple for a sunset cruise back up the Hudson River (with a light dinner) to the Corning Preserve. Oh, and people on the tour will also get a Hudson Passport with discounts to various shops and restaurants around Hudson. See the link at the top for more details.
The trip is rain or shine. And there will be a fair amount of walking.
