Five Autumn Things To Do In The Albany Area

It didn’t really feel like fall until the first day of October.The weather seemed to immediately change. Last week, it was 80 degrees and muggy. This week, we’re waking up to 40 degree days, with a some wind. So this brought to mind some things to do as we really move into the autumn season.


1) Leaves

5) Plan for Thanksgiving

I hate to say it, but it Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. Never to early to start planning on who’s coming to dinner. Some people like to volunteer at charity Thanksgiving dinners, like Equinox in Albany.

Do you have any things that you do for the fall season?
